Pakistan's foreign minister reacted angrily to questions pertaining to her coverage in leading Indian dailies.

Pakistan's young Foreign Minister Hina Rabbani Khar might have caught New Delhi's imagination, but her depiction in the Indian media as a 'fashion icon' seemed to have irked her.

Pakistan's youngest and first woman foreign minister, who returned to Pakistan today after a three-day visit to New Delhi, reacted angrily to questions pertaining to her coverage in leading Indian dailies.

"You see paparazzi are everywhere. Besides, you (referring to media) should not do such acts," Khar said, in reply to a question at the Lahore airport on her arrival. 

So irked was she at the question that after this query she would not take more questions and left for Islamabad.

In New Delhi, where Khar held bilateral meeting with her Indian counterpart SM Krishna, the 34-year-old minister was the talk of the town, with the media closely following her fashion accessories.

An Indian newspaper, while writing about her arrival in New Delhi, said: "her monotone outfit of a blue, the colour of the season, tasteful accessories, Roberto Cavalli sunglasses, oversized Hermes Birkin bag and glass pearl jewellery, added a glamour to her look".
