Where’s Winnie? Model makes a mark in Dubai

DUBAI: The UAE’s most glamorous city is no stranger to jet-setting celebrities and it certainly seems to have impressed Canadian model Winnie Harlow who recently shared a flurry of photos from Dubai.
Harlow shot to fame on America’s Next Top Model in 2014 and has since worked with the who’s who of the fashion industry’s elite, including Marc Jacobs and Tommy Hilfiger.
Harlow made waves due to her modeling prowess and vitiligo, a disease in which the pigment cells of the skin are destroyed in some areas.

She took tabloid newspapers to task, however, in a post on Instagram, saying that she should not be defined by her skin condition.

“I’m not a ‘vitiligo sufferer.’ I’m not a ‘vitiligo model.’ I am Winnie. I am a model. And I happen to have vitiligo,” she posted alongside a snap of her standing on Dubai’s shoreline.

Bollywood stars Padukone, Singh wed in Italy

  • The celebrity couple got married in a private ceremony at Lake Como on Wednesday
  • The pair have yet to comment or release pictures from the event which was closed to the media

MUMBAI: Bollywood superstars Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh have tied the knot in Italy, Indian media reported Thursday.
The celebrity couple got married in a private ceremony at Lake Como on Wednesday, according to the Press Trust of India news agency.
The pair have yet to comment or release pictures from the event which was closed to the media.
Padukone is arguably Indian cinema’s biggest female star currently, and she has also broken into Hollywood, starring in “xXx: Return of Xander Cage” opposite Vin Diesel.
Padukone, 32, and Singh 33, announced in a joint statement last month that their wedding would take place on November 14 and 15.
The couple reportedly started dating in 2013 but have kept details of their relationship largely out of the public eye.
Hindi film director Karan Johar, a friend of the couple, tweeted his congratulations.
“Such a stunning gorgeous and beautiful couple!!!! Nazar utar lo! (Keep the evil eye away) !! Badhai ho (Congratulations) !!! Love you both!!! Here’s to a lifetime of love and joy!” he wrote on Wednesday.
The newlyweds have shared the silver screen together, including a controversial Bollywood epic earlier this year that sparked violent protests in northern India.
Padukone played a legendary Hindu queen and Singh a medieval Muslim ruler in the flick, which angered hard-liners, some of whom burned down film sets and made threats toward the two stars.
Indian superstar Priyanka Chopra and American singer Nick Jonas are due to get married in India early next month.
