Areeba Habib apologizes to Zara Noor Abbas for ridiculing her runway walk

Pakistani model Areeba Habib has apologized to Zara Noor Abbas for making fun of her runway walk. Prior, Areeba had posted a video of her partners, Farwa and Javeria, taunting Zara’s stroll amid Fashion Pakistan Week (FPW).

Zara who walked for Huma Adnan on the very first moment of FPW, shared Areeba’s video on Instagram and got out the models for taunting her. The previous evening, Areeba took to Instagram and posted an announcement “to offer a formal statement of regret”.

 

I would like to offer a formal apology to in the wake of the catwalk video incident, which includes myself and my colleagues, Farwa and Javeria. Also, I take full responsibility for uploading the video, and my colleagues had nothing to do with it. The video shows a couple of girls – friends, colleagues – having their own fun in their own time and space, at the conclusion of a long day at work, something that all normal people are allowed to do but I accept that it should not have been done at someone else’s expense, especially publically. Given that the video was private, yet again, I stand by my stance: we respect all women and their craft very much. It seems like this incident has in fact been blown out of proportion by the third parties involved which is why I thought it would be best to take this chance to apologize for any inconvenience that this video may have caused to #ZaraNoorAbbas and bring all this to an end.

“I am a performer, not a model. I can’t envision to be a model. It is so easily stunning and tiring in the meantime. In any case, as a performer, I must engage my gatherings of people. Also, that is the thing that I did with my walk which depended on the topic of a warrior princess in this manner the belt and the boots were consolidated in my outfit. That is the reason planners pick performing artists as gems for their strolls. To include more dramatization. Some preferred it, some didn’t. My originator was upbeat as was I,” the dramatization on-screen character had additionally said.
