The 20th LUX Style Awards took place on the 9th of October, 2021, in a star-studded event. This year’s ceremony acknowledged achievements in fashion, television, and music.
Due to Covid-19, LSA 2020 was recorded in Karachi and Lahore in various segments to celebrate excellence in the arenas of fashion, film, television, film, and music. The event included a red carpet, appearances from some of the winners, video recordings from others, and terrific dance performances.
This year, artists from the entertainment industry celebrated two decades of LSA, that went through endless highs and lows to stand where it does today. The 20th annual Lux Style Awards 2021 paid homage to Pakistan’s style and entertainment industries that survived the test of time, geo-political instability in the country and world, economic crises and in the last two years, the Covid-19 pandemic.
LSA is big on acknowledging veteran actors and also gives recognition to emerging talent. It was no different this time around. A special tribute to artists who lost their lives to Coronavirus was paid by singer-songwriter Asim Azhar. To celebrate the legacy of singer Fareeda Khanum, film-star Resham paid tribute by dancing on her songs. The evolution of fashion in the industry was not left behind.
