Lakme Fashion Week: Many Bollywood stars show up

JEDDAH: A stunning show by celebrity designer Manish Malhotra was the final offering of the Lakme Fashion Week for the Winter Festival 2017.
Lakme Fashion Week is a bi-annual fashion event that takes place in Mumbai. Its Summer Resort show takes place in April while the Winter Festival show takes place in August.
According to the Hindustan Times, for the first time, the color palette for a Malhotra collection involved extensive use of black, white and chrome.
Malhotra is an Indian fashion designer. His prolific career spanning 27 years has seen him redefine fashion for an entire generation of Indians.
For Malhotra, 2015 was a milestone year as it marked 25 years of his association with Hindi cinema as a designer and stylist, and 10 years since the creation of the eponymous label.
He revolutionized costume designing and introduced the concept of styling in Bollywood after his first film as a designer for Juhi Chawla in “Swarg.” Manish’s creative process began with script readings — an unheard of practice in Hindi films, so as to make the characters more relatable to the audience. 
The show was attended by an array of Bollywood stars. Here is list of Bollywood stars who participated in the fashion show:
• Bhumi Pednekar showcased a creation by designer Ruceru.
• Taapsee Pannu showcased a creation by designer Divya Reddy.
• Daina Penty showcased a creation by designer Shriya Som.
• Ileana D’Cruz showcased a creation by designer De Belle.
• Jacqueline Fernandez displayed a creation by Malhotra.

Brazil breathes sigh of relief over Neymar's hairdo change

  • The look sent Brazilian social media’s ruthless meme machine into overdrive, juxtaposing Neymar alongside everything from a lookalike llama to the contents of a Pot Noodle or a packet of angel hair pasta

RIO DE JANEIRO: Neymar is famous for his stepovers, but it was his World Cup hair do-over that really got Brazilians talking Tuesday.
The world’s most expensive footballer was underwhelming in Brazil’s 1-1 World Cup opener against Switzerland on Sunday.
His coif, however, featuring shaved sides and a blond-dyed mop at the front, was unmissable.
The look sent Brazilian social media’s ruthless meme machine into overdrive, juxtaposing Neymar alongside everything from a lookalike llama to the contents of a Pot Noodle or a packet of angel hair pasta.
“The Brazilian star went onto the field disguised as a cockatoo,” the Meia Hora tabloid wrote on its front page.
Many questioned, in all seriousness, whether Neymar hadn’t been put off his game by thinking too much about his hair.
So there was national relief when the superstar was photographed at the team’s Sochi base with the offending noodles-feathers part of his hair snipped off.
“After criticisms, Neymar gets rid of his controversial haircut,” the celebrity news site popzone.tv wrote.
“It could be superstition or just coincidence, but Neymar has decided to change his look again after the 1-1 draw,” the leading globoesporte site said.
But there could be more surprises to come.
Estadao newspaper reported that Neymar brought two hairdressers with him to Russia: Nariko, who does the cutting, and Wagner Tenorio, who handles the coloring.
