1. Zia Mohyeddin hosted the very first Lux Style Awards in 2002
The first LSA held in 2002 was hosted by actor, narrator, producer, director and television broadcaster Zia Mohyeddin who has appeared in both Pakistan and British cinema throughout his career. In a league of his own, Zia Mohyeddin remains one of LSA’s best hosts.
2. Moin Akhter hosting 2nd LSA
Pakistan’s favourite comedian, Moeen Akhter, hosted the second Lux Style Awards. We remember how magnificently Moin Akhter spoofed fashion during his performance at the Lux Style Awards 2003 and how he had us in stitches. We miss you!
A thespian and actress par excellence, Nadia Jamil’s skills are not limited to television and the stage. She was a fantastic host at the third Lux Style Awards held in Dubai in 2004.
There is no limit to what extraordinary Shaan Shahid can do. He’s an actor, writer and director but his strengths are not limited to these skills. He has hosted LSA ceremonies in 2005 and 2008 and is the first male Lollywood star to pilot the prestigious awards show.
Top models Aamina Haq & Iman Ali also made it to LSA hosts’ list in 2005 as co-hosts with Shaan Shahid.
Moammar Rana & Reema Khan
The actor who took Lollywood by storm with his first movie “Deewane tere pyar ke” made his first appearance in LSA as an MC in 2007 along with the Scarlett of Pakistani Film Industry, Reema Khan.
The singing sensation Ali Azmat, who performed in LSA 2006 found his way back to LSA stage in 2007 as a host. Ali’s performance as a host was as electrifying as his singing.
Our favourite singer and actor, Fawad Khan made his first official entry to LSA as a host in 2008.
The 10th Lux Style Awards brought the hilarious BNN boys to the LSA stage. Mubeen Gabol and Murtaza Chaudhry received a huge applause from the audience and praise from the media for doing full justice to the LSA stage and keeping the audience engaged throughout the event with their hilarious jokes. Definitely one of the most entertaining hosts to date.
Famous Pakistani actor, hip hop rapper and rock music keyboardist, Ahmed Ali Butt stole the show at the 11th Lux Style Awards with his hilarious jokes and brilliant re-enaction of Akon’s ‘Smack That’.This year Ahmed Ali butt will return to the LSA stage. He has a big ask to keep the audience engaged and entertained during the long show. We are certain he will!
