Woke up at 8 sharp, on a Saturday morning, mind.. and after getting some stuff done, I decided to snuggle into my blanket for a while because London is cold AF (excuse my French) right now. Next thing I know it's 2 o'clock in the afternoon and my phone is blowing up. Hua kya, you ask? Oh, just, OsMaya were preparing to take the ramp by storm.. yet again! There was no time for the kyun? Kahaan? Kaise? So I just took a deep breath and dived right into the notifs!
The rehearsal shots were awwww-dorable, even more so than last time! *hides* Come on, you thought so too! JUST ADMIT IT! I promise, I won't judge! The photographs were so cute.. like itne cute, itne cute that I forgot that I missed all the pre-show madness! Maya is such a shy little ball of cuteness! Just like during their #FashionPakistanWeek rehearsals, she couldn't keep a straight face! Bless her heart, hehe! Also, my buddy @zonimaheen got hold of a little Snapchat video of their rehearsals. Ooooh.. and there's one more thing! Maria B. is one of my mum's most favourite designers so I was especially looking forward to THAT!
I was one happy owl! Jo kuch miss kiya tha, all of THIS made up for it! All of these choti choti cheezain combined got me super excited for the actual walk. Ab inn feels ka kya karein.. we didn't get BTS videos! *sits in the corner and cries* For those of you who don't get the significance.. yeh #lifeofavidder hai Anjali/Anjala, tum nahin samjhogi/ge. So, since there wasn't any video footage available, I decided to make a quick collage of the BTS photographs (go 3 posts back). Random sa confession.. ummm.. after their first ramp-walk, I was 99.9% sure that they'll be roped in for BCW as well. So I was kinda expecting it. *runs away*
Anyway.. onto the VM. First things first, I'm a little disappointed in the media people present at the event.. where's the footage guys? Itni MUSHKILON se mili hain yeh choti choti si videos jissey I've made this VM. Hum vidders ka kuch toh socha karein, please! You guys were so awesome during FPW, ab kya hogaya?! I know I keep comparing Fashion Pakistan Week with Bridal Couture Week, like Potterheads do with the books and movies, but this was inevitable!
The music. Zeroing in on the song was one of the toughest things about making this VM. I mean I'd already used music from Aik Nayee Cinderella and Diya-E-Dil.. dono, woh bhi ek hi VM main.. aur uper se itna chota sa VM. I was legit upset. Phir dhooond dhoooond ke, yeh mila! The music gave me an idea and I decided to take the 'fairytale' route. [I hope that came across, God, I hope it did!] It goes, too, cause Maya looked like a princess in that gorgeous Maria B. lehnga!
The walk itself left something to be desired. In my humble opinion, the walk Frieha Altaf (yes, God help me, I'm comparing the two.. again) had choreographed, for Wardha Saleem, was much, much better: so graceful.. so cute.. so magical! Don't get disheartened though. It wasn't all bad.. the way Maya flicks Obi's nose was adorable.. and the dip! *sigh* Waise whatever was missing, Maria B's clothes more than made up for it!
Obi's adaab. Check. Twirl. Check. Holding hands. Check. Signature pose. Check. Maya blowing a kiss. Check. Wink..? Maya "ALI" (bless you, HSY). CHECK!
While, during Fashion Pakistan Week, they looked more like Wali & Farah, this time round, they were giving me Aunn Zara feels. Maya was bring all cute and mischievous, while Obi looked a little shy, a la Aunn! 💙 Hence the hashtag #AunnKiDulhanZara!

P.s. the actual song has the word 'sanam' in it.
