The LUX Style Awards 2016 nominees have been announced with great style and fanfare at an elegant Nominee Reveal event on Monday, 30th May in  Karachi. This is the 15th year of the prestigious LUX Style Awards – a proud first for Pakistan’s Award shows – and the clear intent is to celebrate it in every way possible.

Nominees for LSA 2016 were announced in 27 categories in Fashion, Film, Music and TV. To acknowledge and reinforce its belief in the growing Film industry, this year the Awards office of the LUX Style Awards has introduced four new categories i.e. Best Supporting Actor – Male, Best Supporting Actor – Female, Best Playback Singer Male and Best Playback Singer Female. Historically the LUX brand has its roots embedded in the film industry and has supported that talent through thick and thin.
