Lakme Fashion Week 2017: Chitrangada Singh looked like a warrior princess on the ramp

first_imgThe highly-awaited fashion fiesta of the year, Lakme Fashion Week is ruling the news with its phenomenal exhibition of modern fashion on the runway. While the first day of the event was all about the sultry Disha Patani in white, shining like a star on the ramp, day two was dedicated to the idea of elegant dressing with the magic of pastel-hues in Indian ethnic wear.On the other hand, day three of this gala event turned out to be a scintillating celebration of fusion dressing that exuded power in the most vibrant way.Photo: Yogen Shah The runway saw the fiery-looking Chitrangada Singh stun in a flamboyant number by Neha Agarwal as her showstopper.The gown was an ode to the art of Madhubani as it boasted of the animal motifs incorporated with brilliant colours. While the peacock-like patterns and the offsetting of contrasting colours played on traditional tones, the fish-cut pattern of the gown looked absolutely contemporary.Photo: Yogen Shah The plunging-neckline-gown had gorgeously well-balanced embellishment on the sleeves and the heavy choker-neck that pumped up the look on the whole. The actress sizzled as she walked down the runway with a powder-blue, fish minaudiere bag that added a touch of ethnicity to this fusion outfit. Photo: Yogen Shah It was admirable to see Chitrangada sport a statement nose-pin that jazzed up the look that she pulled off effortlessly.last_img read more

Evander Holyfield Gets Ready To Knock Out Prostate Cancer

first_imgAre you ready to rumble? Coming soon to knock out prostate cancer is boxing legend and five-time heavyweight champion of the world, Evander Holyfield.Since his retirement from boxing in 2011, Holyfield has dedicated his time to philanthropic activities through Team Holyfield, and will be featured in a public service announcement for the Prostate Cancer Foundation that encourages African-American men to get regularly checked for prostate cancer. Providence-based multi-disciplinary brand culture and communications firm (add)ventures will direct, film and edit the public service announcement – donating a significant portion of the public service announcement’s production costs. Holyfield is donating his time on the public service announcement – an endeavor that marks his commitment to serving as a goodwill ambassador for the Prostate Cancer Foundation.The public service announcement, which will be filmed on May 28 at a location to be announced, will feature Holyfield in his natural element – the boxing ring – as he tells his story of perseverance in the ring and in life. The piece will showcase that while strength, speed and stamina can be drawn upon to beat an opponent in the ring, other resources must be used when fighting an unseen force like prostate cancer – an opponent that could wind up causing a fight for life. The public service announcement will include a message from Holyfield that encourages African-American men to get checked for prostate cancer and directs them to www.pcf.org, the Prostate Cancer Foundation’s website.Prostate cancer is the most common non-skin cancer among men, affecting a staggering one in seven men in the United States. Studies point to several factors that could influence an individual’s chance of developing prostate cancer including age, race and family history. Among the reasons that prompted Team Holyfield to champion prostate cancer awareness is the fact that African-American men are 1.6 times more likely to develop prostate cancer than Caucasian men, and 2.4 times more likely to die from the disease.“When prostate cancer is detected early enough, it is 100 percent treatable,” said Barbara J. Parsky, senior vice president and chief marketing officer of the Prostate Cancer Foundation. “Getting regularly checked for prostate cancer is a surefire way to detect it early enough to offer all men more treatment options with potentially fewer side effects than if prostate cancer remains undetected or found at a later stage. We can’t thank Evander enough for lending his voice, influence and passion to raise awareness about this disease and the benefit of early detection.”Since hanging up his gloves in 2011, Holyfield has dedicated himself to doing service-based work that reflects his values and strong faith, which led him to establish Team Holyfield. Team Holyfield’s mission is to create and sustain relationships with individuals, companies and organizations that support altruism, community relations and humanitarian efforts and reflects Holyfield’s core values of “faith, family, foundation and future.” Holyfield is particularly interested in supporting initiatives that affect the African-American community. Prostate cancer is one such initiative.“We want to tell people to spread the word and encourage their fathers, brothers, sons and friends to get checked for prostate cancer,” said Holyfield. “This is an issue that affects all men and is in line with our mission to partner with incredible organizations and invest in their important work. I’m honored to go the distance for the Prostate Cancer Foundation. Together, we can spread the word and hopefully knock out prostate cancer for good.”Upon learning of Team Holyfield’s interest in the cause, (add)ventures President and CEO Steve Rosa conceptualized a national awareness campaign around prostate cancer with the donation of (add)ventures’ public service announcement effort as part of his firm’s corporate philanthropy program – (add)love.“I grew up diagonally across the street from live boxing at Manny Almeida’s Ringside Tap in Fox Point so I know Providence’s rich boxing tradition well,” said Rosa. “I remember the stories of champions like Sugar Ray Robinson, Joe Louis and Rocky Marciano coming to my neighborhood so it makes me proud to bring another legendary champion to Providence – especially for such an important cause. Evander Holyfield is truly ‘The Real Deal’ in the ring and in life. Prostate cancer has attacked family and friends alike. I was happy to have our firm join Team Holyfield and the Prostate Cancer Foundation in this fight. Any fight is winnable with a champ like Evander in your corner.”last_img read more
