Lindsay Lohan honored at Dubai awards show

DUBAI: US actress Lindsay Lohan and a host of Bollywood celebrities, including Alia Bhatt, Vaani Kapoor, Farah Khan and Iulia Vantur were in attendance at one of the most anticipated Middle East awards show.
The 7th GR8! Women Awards, conceptualized by Indian TV personalities Abu and Shashi Ranjan, honored 17 women achievers from the region right from Kuwait, Bahrain, Abu Dhabi, Saudi Arabia, Dubai, Qatar as well as India.
Lohan, meanwhile, was honored for her work with children, Gulf News reported. The “Mean Girls” star has sought to use her fame to aid child refugees who have escaped from war-torn Syria to Turkey.
Lohan, who has made Dubai her new home, wowed in a white kaftan with gold embroidery. The star’s modest dressing comes as no surprise as she has become an outspoken advocate of Islam after receiving online hatred when she was photographed holding a Qur’an earlier last year.
Farah Khan, a celebrated filmmaker who also won an award, used the occasion to talk about equal pay in Bollywood.
“I am a female director but I get paid more than many male directors. That’s because my movies do well at the box office,” she said.
Vaani Kapoor, who was in Dubai last year for the promotion of her film “Befikre” said: “We don’t need one particular day to celebrate womanhood. But it feels amazing to get felicitated at such a prestigious event.”

Trump wipes dandruff off visiting French President Macron

WASHINGTON: US President Donald Trump on Tuesday made a show of flicking dandruff from the suit collar of visiting French President Emmanuel Macron, saying it was a sign of the two leaders’ “very special relationship.”
Trump made the surprise gesture as Macron, the first foreign leader to be honored with a state visit in Washington since Trump took office 15 months ago, stood at his side for a photo opportunity in the White House’s Oval Office.
“We have a very special relationship, in fact I’ll get that little piece of dandruff off... We have to make him perfect, he is perfect,” Trump said to a laughing Macron.
