A Pakistani model has her make-up done backstage during the Pakistan Fashion Week in Karachi on November 5, 2009. Fashion week runs until November 7, taking place three weeks late because of security jitters and as a mark of respect for more than 300 people who perished in a string of attacks blamed on Islamist militants last month. Fashion week showcases 32 local designers over the four-day event, with security fears keeping foreign models and designers away.
