Where was the style at the Hum Style Awards?


On Saturday night, some of our brightest celebrities descended to Karachi’s Expo Centre to strut their stuff down the Hum Style Awards red carpet.

While a lot of big names were missing, the red carpet was still buzzing. Now, when you’ve got the word style literally in the name, can you blame us for expecting some fun fashion?
We were disappointed. Not all the looks we saw were terrible, just most of them.
Here’s the lowdown on who should’ve gotten a better stylist, and a handful of those who look hot, no matter what (we’re looking at you, Kiran Malik!):
Nay: Kubra Khan
Just us or does this look like a Christmas tree in mourning to you guys too?
This could have been salvaged if more effort was put into styling this; the rust shoes and silver earrings just looked dated and mismatched. Speaking of looking dated…
Meh: Sonya Hussyn
Another winner from the night who wore something less than inspiring, which is surprising because we usually look to Hussyn to mix things up on the red carpet. Ruffled dupattas are so two years ago.
Meh: Ayesha Omar
We love experimental looks. But as the saying goes, ‘go big or go home.’
Even though Omar ended up bagging the Style Icon of the Year accolade, we felt like this gothic mummified ballerina vibe wasn’t one of her bests. Sure, the makeup and hairdo worked and we liked the minimal yet striking accessories, but all in all, this Elan creation was a fairly forgettable number.
Nay: Mansha Pasha
From the stockings to the one-shoulder trench coat dress with tacky embroidery, we couldn’t find a single redeeming quality in this Barbie gone bad look. Not Shamsha Hashwani’s best work. Also, would it kill the ladies to work a bright lip?
Yay: Zara Abid
We see a red lip, yes! This monochrome look by the model was simple yet classy without being dull. Telling you, a bold pout does wonders.
Yay: Mahnoor Baloch
Finally!
Mahnoor Baloch doesn’t attend many award shows but when she does, she gives the other starlets some serious competition. She wore a gorgeous silk ombre sari by Menahel and Mehreen with a velvet halter blouse, looking like the most beautiful peacock we’ve ever seen! Now if she could just point us to the fountain of youth that she’s been drinking from, that’d be great…
Yay: Zara Shahjahan
Clearly a solid sari was the way to go. We loved how the designer kept the makeup minimal, her hair in a snatched ponytail and topped her maroon sari with a leopard print blazer. So chic and right on trend!
Meh: Momina Mustehsan
There’s just too much going on here: the feathers, the frills, the belt, the red shoes. Mustehsan is a repeat red carpet offender. Sad to report, she missed the mark this time around as well.
Yay: Sahad
Sajal and Ahad were twinning in black but to be fair, we’re not even really looking at the fashion here. The best accessory these two were rocking was each other as arm candy.
Nay: Zara Noor Abbas
So. Much. Chiffon! This Asim Jofa dress looks like it was some serious work to walk around in. Unfortunately, it wasn’t worth it. If you’re wearing a ball gown, go all out. Make sure it fits like a glove, be savvy while accessorising and maybe do something more interesting with your hair than just a regular blow-out? This just screams poofy and boring.
Meh: Mira Sethi
Mira Sethi clearly hasn’t been skipping the gym! While the top half slayed, the skirt was ill-fitting and not so flattering; pants would have looked better. We approve of the dangly earrings though!
Meh: Nausheen Shah
Shah usually always ends up on our best-dressed list but this enemble was a little disappointing, especially because we’ve seen this outfit on Hania Amir before. Personally would have skipped the in your face emblem belt and OTT earrings.
Yay: Kiran Malik
Malik could wear a potato sack and still make it work. Any one else would have faltered in this quirky, print on print Ali Xeeshan sari. Not the Pinky Memsaab actor. Coupling the sari with slicked back hair, a statement ear cuff and choker, she somehow made it work without looking outlandish. How does she do it?!
Yay: Mikaal Zulfiqar
Again, someone who pretty much rocks whatever he wears. The Ruswai actor paired a black tee with a grey blazer; casual but also full of swag. Classic Mikaal.

Is It Really So Bad to Bribe (or Punish) Your Kids with Food?


When Spanish actress Hilaria Baldwin recently shared that she withheld dessert from her 4-year-old son, Rafa, she was understandably conflicted about her chosen method of discipline. “Rafa wasn’t listening to me today about a few things. It got so bad that I ended up taking away dessert tonight,” she wrote. “Something I thought I would never do…but it truly was the only way I could think of to get his attention.” She bravely went on to acknowledge her own past eating disorder and how complicated our relationship with food can get. “For those of you who, like me, get nervous about using food as reward/punishment…I do believe that teaching [kids] to have a healthy relationship with food when they are upset is the most important thing.”
We get it—and we’ve been there. Who among us hasn’t chased a preschooler around a playground scream-whispering about ice cream? In fact, using rewards/bribes/incentives as well as threats/punishments/consequences to get our kids to comply is such a common knee-jerk tactic, it feels almost instinctual. Carrot? Or stick?
Is it really so bad if the carrot is a cookie?
It turns out, kinda, sorta, yeah—if you do it regularly. Using food to control behavior—also known as “instrumental feeding”—is confusing to kids, for one. “Children hear that they’re supposed to enjoy foods that are good for them and avoid foods with little nutritional value,” note the experts at the University of Rochester Medical Center. “Being told that they can indulge in foods that are bad for them as a reward for doing something good sends a mixed message. They may also start associating unhealthy foods with certain moods—when you feel good about yourself, for instance, it’s OK to reach for a sweet.” Kids want nothing more than parental approval, not even fudge brownies. So when we involve both their emotions and their taste buds (which naturally lean toward sweeter preferences), we make a powerful case that unhealthy foods are the most desirable.
Denying them those foods in anger sends an equally potent message: If dessert wasn’t the best, most precious and special thing, why would we bother taking it away to demonstrate our disapproval? According to family nutrition expert Maryann Jacobsen, using food to manage behavior increases the risk of emotional eating and preferences for high-fat, high-sugar foods while decreasing the ability to regulate food intake. “Repeatedly using food to reward and punish teaches kids that food is tied to emotions both good and bad…that treats are the best thing ever [and] that food helps solve problems. It teaches kids to eat when they are not hungry. This leaves them ill-prepared for the food-plenty world in which we live.”
Then there’s the behavioral piece. If you desperately offer sweets in the midst of a tantrum (hi), you’re not really putting out the fire; you’re fueling it. “Don’t offer the reward in the middle of misbehavior, because that trains kids to misbehave to force you to give them a reward,” writes parenting expert Laura Markham. She is OK with offering kids rewards to reinforce good behavior, with the caveat that you set the goal and define the reward ahead of time. The key is that “these incentives are established in advance, not pulled out under duress when a child is misbehaving.” In any case, the reward shouldn’t be edible.
Instead, experts advise designating a few nights a week as “treat nights,” and on all other nights, redefining dessert as fruit, granola with honey or other healthier options. If you are serving dessert, everyone gets it, regardless of how they have behaved. And if you’re already in too deep with the food bribes, you might even consider serving dessert alongside dinner (!!!) to help take some of the excitement out of it. In an ideal world, the table would be a refuge of nurturing and calm, where families connect without screens or power struggles, carrots or sticks.
Overall, what Baldwin did during her difficult night with Rafa was a case study in parenting goals: “I spent extra time with him while he was processing and so angry. It took a really long time for him to calm down. I just kept saying I love him and I know he can do better…Talking [is] so vital to having the ability to process difficult moments in life.” The next time this happens to us, we plan to follow her example. We’ll just try to keep the melted chocolate separate from the meltdown.
