It's that time of the year again!! The annual Lux Style Awards (LSA) are right around the corner and have everyone buzzing about who all will make the cut in this extremely competitive round of nominations!

A list of nominees in 23 categories covering fashion, film, music and television has been released for the event which will take place for the 14th consecutive year on the 30th of September. 

The LSA are considered as the "Pakistani Oscars" and is the most prestigious and credible platform, to honour the varied talent of Pakistan.
This year there  are 10 fashion, four music, four film and and five television categories. All categories have approximately five-six nominees  each. 
The two Pakistani movies which have been nominated this year are,  Dukhtar, Na Maloom Afrad. 

We are excited to see some of our favourites- Sana Safinaz, Sania Maskatiya, Khadijah Shah, Shehla Chatoor, Misha Lakhani, Maheen Karim and Shameel Ansari- on the list as well!! 

The fashion jury has revived the bridal category, which will focus on bridal finery, a category that has come into its own after the advent of well edited and curated bridal couture weeks.

Four sets of juries are appointed for each of the four categories of fashion, film, music and television. Majority of the categories in TV and music are decided by viewer's choice votes, while a second tier  jury votes for winners in the ten fashion categories.
