Debuting on HHC is Pakistan’s Foreign Minister, Hina Rabbani Khar who arrived in India dressed in blue. Hermès Birkin, pearl jewelry and black sandals completed her look. Crushed kurta aside (next time, may we recommend a quick change before landing or a different fabric?), we like the simple (and effective) look.

  1. Wow. She’s really young for a foreign minister, but more power to her. I love the simplicity of how she’s dressed. She proves that being classy is timeless.

  2. It’s rather fussy and vain to change before landing and I like that she didn’t. She looks very classy and is somehow not overwhelmed by the monochrome. Lovely look.

  3. never seen a politician carry a birkin bag. She looks good, I love the solid color chiffon dupatta – it drapes so beautifully. love the color. Not crazy about the orange highlights, I am glad the dupatta covers them.

  4. Wow !! She is beautiful. (Twinkle Khanna’s long lost cousin ? )
    That shade of blue color gives her a classy look. No wonder it is called royal-blue.

    PnP, your recommendation of a different fabric I can get, but change of dress before landing? really ?

    • Why not? Why is the idea of quickly changing into a different kurta so incredulous? Have we ever seen a diplomat/statesman/politician/visiting heads of State step off the flight on an official visit anywhere in crushed clothes?

      • Not too long ago I had to change my jeans while on a flight because the person sitting next to me spilled his wine on me… And you know space wise how economical the toilets are… I hated it…
        granted its a different situation for rich people/diplomats/politicians traveling in first class/business class/private planes/Air-force one… but in my opinion I think we need to ignore crushed clothes when they are travelling esp for women in Indian clothes like salwar kameez/saris… As I said earlier, your recommendation of a different fabric I agree with…

      • Agreed.. no visiting heads step out in crushed clothes.. that is why wrinkle-free fabrics should be the way to go..a la Princess Kate!

      • Well you haven’t seen any diplomat/statesman/politician/visiting heads of State step off the flight on an official visit anywhere in crushed clothes because they are always wearing western wear (read blazers/skirts/pants/jackets). However, in Pakistan long shirts with salwars/pajamas and dupattas are worn. And this traditional outfit takes lots of yards of clothes, so they are bound to have creases. Come on P&P she has bigger issues on her mind than quickly changing into a different kurta.

  5. Wow! simple yet gorgeous. A breath of fresh air if you ask me especially in today’s world where fashion OTTs is the norm. Very classy, can’t even fault her crushed kurta.

  7. Very elegant and graceful.. Love how she wears the monochrome scheme without it wearing her!

    Also love the fact she did not change to avoid crumpled-ness cuz not everyone can be perfect and it is totally acceptable to appear like that after travelling..

  8. Who knows if she changed AFTER she landed? Seriously, why is it such a big deal, she still looks amazing regardless. She clearly handles herself with a lot of grace – lovely.

  9. Very elegant. Love the colour and the pearls with it. Read she is a Birkin woman.

    Impressive, 34 and foreign minister! Hope things move in the right direction with her at the helm.

  10. She looks every inch the blue blooded aristocrat! her shades and pearls take me back more to Jackie-O than Twinkle Khanna. She proves that you dont have to wear skimpy clothes or be age inappropriate to be fashionable

  11. A flight from Lahore to New Delhi lasts 30 minutes (I have been on one). While it makes sense to wear a fabric that doesn’t crush as much as silk (although nothing says formal like silk does) it doesn’t make sense to change on such a short flight.

  12. I have to say that I’d have very little respect for a politician vain enough to change before landing. They’re not models and they’re not here for the way they look at all.

    Cotton is great for our kind of climates and why shouldn’t she be crushed? She’s just human and getting off a flight. I’ve never understood the pressure to look good straight off a journey.

    That apart – think she looks lovely. Great choice of colour. Lovely outfit. Beautiful face.

  13. I gotta agree with PnP, she should have changed or made sure she was wearing the right clothes before she boarded, I suspect the flight isn’t that long. When you know your going to get photo-graphed and the likes, you should make sure your well dressed, especially if your holding such a high post. But she sure is good looking in royal blue:)

  15. she was my senior at the Lahore University of Management Sciences (LUMS). didn’t really care for her looks back then and don’t recall her being one of the “stylish” girls, but she certainly looks very elegant now. Also very appropriately dressed given that she’s a politician and not a celebrity ( kashmala tariq please take notes!!!)

  17. Can’t understand he fuss over a politician’s clothes honestly why is it so strange that she has alighted with a few creases in her kameez after all she is not Royalty who come with a whole wardrobe and have to change on board……also the back ground she comes from means that a Birkin is just another bag and not a wealth statement!!!!!
