This article is the profile of Pakistani model Vaneeza Ahmed.Pplease contact at basitthegreat.yahoo.com.
Beatous screen of fashion magazines, with a flamboyance and vivacious visage cannonading at doctors. Prim, modest and bashful Vaneeza entices you to unwrap paper of fashion glaze, with seductive, captivative gaze on each page. Right now she is the glance of colour pages of top fashion magazines in country. She looks catty and plays catty tactics, coupled with the ability of metamorphosing from one stunning image to another.
Sans the presence of Iraj or thin chick Natasha or versatile Iffat, Vaneeza is the most stunning and sought after model due to her caliber of transformation to myriad images and adduction of flamboyance and panache in her style and character.
Infiltrating modeling industry, requires to be accidentally discovered by photographer or latching yourself to designers like Nabila, Nilofer or Maria B. Vaneeza Ahmed accidentally got trapped in Khawar Riaz’s visual camera during party, and he approached this maya with an apprehension. She, even was lucky to secure photographers like Ather Shehzad and Arif Mehmood, who are the power reins and their strings are connected to many glossy faces.
There are few faces which become the emblem of industry due to widespread appeal and result in transformation of industry just due to their attendance. Vaneeza is amongst them. Her face, body style, attitude with an adduction of confidence, reins fashion pages and endure the age bracket of metric and Intermediate students to built fantasies around her( well graduates should go for Hollywood mayas). Her carrier is now touching stardom about which one can only dream of. It would be pertinent to sum up her arrival in the adage “ she came, she saw, she conquered”.
Craving out from the cultural restrictions, entering ramps of liberty and freely stepping up in the most glamorous field of Pakistan, Vaneeza now wants to make a huge and hazardous move. Guess what!! right.. she is entering in Indian saga. Sounds dodgy and undue. I can give ten by ten assurances that Indians would psychologically trap her to line on their scale, as they did to others. No Indian fashion guru has ever come to Pakistan, rather they name our industry conservative and narrow. Da! First they should look at their own RSS and Shiv sena Models. Anyways Vinnie! be a cultural Ambassador of Pakistan or stick up to your day to day schedule back home. Vaneeza certainly has proved that being vulgar and unclothed is not the merit for fame in modeling, rather shipping in our own cultural lake and surplusing attitude, confidence and feeling beautiful can gear models to success. Unfortunately, many photographers exude a lukewarm response to outsiders unless they are cheap and vulgar, but Vaneeza seems to be overhauling them.
Talking about her look-for-chance in Indian ramp makes one reminiscent of her role in Jinnah as “Dina” daughter of Quaid, who after all the love and affection she received form Quaid, did nothing rather left him. Character seems to be repeating itself in reality. Anyways her role as Dina was appreciated by, many in front of TV screens. Being “Dina” she has setted fire on bigots who say that models can’t act. She fast and furiously is making a road in acting, with her gregarious personality and eager nature. Starting it by a lead girl in Jamal Shah’s controversial saga.
Vaneeza equates attitude and professionalism, and looks for success in modeling .She is having very erratic working hours with participation in fashion shows, shoots, recording and dubbing for television. Hoisted work doesn’t fence her from preserving same schedule, the very next day. Rather she takes it as a passion, mixes up with people, interacts with them which cranes down her exhaustion. She herself is not fond of glamour, its rather money and job that makes her to transform a new look, and new image, as she says” I am in for money. I have to support my home.”
Has anyone ever cared as to what is behind these glamorous clothes? Well, she is a graduate of Kinniard coupled with intelligence and mind smartness. Those who categories models as dimbos, for their info, she is an intelligent and high IQ girl. Vaneeza does takes keen interest in ongoing current events (if u don’t believe then better setup a kasoti with her). Let me assert, that as being “MissWold” requires only few percent beauty and its knowledge and confidence that umbrella’s the contest. Same is the case here, dimbos never succeed.
Our modeling industry still is facing many “ups and downs”. Still, they are caught between the censor policies and hypocrisy of PTV. Ban on fashion shows but no censor for those who attempt karo kari, this pours one in misunderstanding about the policies of our national television. Vaneeza has certainly become the symbol of present millennium and has faced all ”ifs and buts”. She knows the tricks of trade, despite of all censor policies, Vaneeza is still giving all cardiac surgeons a tough time!
