If Florals for Spring isn’t groundbreaking for Miranda Priestly (character, The Devil Wears Prada; 2006), she will be the first to scoff at the trend of adding green to your wardrobe this season. However, fashion pundits don’t seem to mind as shades of this colour has been spotted on the runways at most of the recently concluded fashion weeks. Even celebrities have accepted this colour with open arms. From Kelly green, fern green and chartreuse to olive green, shamrock, and even lime, Green is definitely in this Maytide.

Green is in this season

Paresh Lamba, founder and designer, Paresh Lamba Signatures, shares, “This spring is all about the revival of pine and sea greens. They are eye-soothing, while also adding a pop of colour to your wardrobe. It can be seen in everything from accessories to bottom wear. Use shades of this colour in statement pieces like printed shirts, solid blazers, trousers and shorts.”

If you are wary of adding a bold colour like this in the main pieces of your outfit, you can also add subtler touches with accessories like bags, chains, earrings, rings, and other pieces of jewellery. Don’t be afraid to mix and match greens with other colours like yellow, blues and cherry reds, to create unique and eye-catching ensembles.

Nature’s colour, add Green to your wardrobe

If you’re a beginner in experimenting with colours, stylist Lorraine Gonsalves suggests adding green with your scarves, belts or shoes. “You can mix it up with your neutrals and a green top with beige for a classy look, or even grey, black or white bottoms. If you want to go all out with the colour, go monochromatic. It can be different hues of the green colour palette.”

Wondering what to jewellery to wear with green? It mixes well any metallic accents. Jewellery in silver, bronze or dull gold and even embroidery can elevate your look due to the striking contrast. If nothing else, you can bring in pops of green colour with your nail polish and by adding a subtle green eyeliner to your makeup look, suggests Gonsalves.

Here’s a glimpse at how celebrities, both in India and around the world, are wearing it of late:

Calls for peace

Jennifer Lopez keeps it cool for the season as she wears an olive linen blazer and skirt set. Wearing a black bralette and messy hair, the singer-actor shows you how to take your formal wear to a party look. An unlikely pairing, she chose to pair it with a peach Coach bag and silver jewellery to match the bag’s hardware.

Magnificently magical

A wearable look for brunch or a meet-up with friends, actor Shilpa Shetty Kundra’s Kelly green midi may seem usual at first glance. However, a second look at the actor’s Rachel Gilbert hand-draped sleeves and neckline, and cinched waist shows attention to each intricate detail. A gold cuff on her hand and a detailed necklace, Kundra added pops of gold in her handbag as well. Black pointed heels and nude makeup rounded off the look.

Cosy for spring

Wearing knit for spring may leave you wondering, but Kiara Advani’s dress still feels perfect for the season. As summer knitwear is the new trend, the actor’s Cult Gaia fern green dress’s strategically placed cut-outs will keep you cool. Glossy hair and lips might not be such a great combo on a windy day, but they work well for Advani. She added another hue with her lime green heels and skipped any other accessories.

An indie dream

Actor Sobhita Dhulipala wore a handwoven lime green silk saree from homegrown brand Ekaya. The addition of a cape in the same hue, added a whole load of drama, along with the statement blouse. Opting for oxidised jewellery in the form of a stack of khadas and a few rings dotting her hands, Dhulipala didn’t hold back. She put the finishing touches to her outfit with a sever bun, minimal makeup and nude lipstick.

Maximum power

Sonakshi Sinha is a lesson in maximalism. With an embroidered cropped jacket and a draped satin skirt from Anamika Khanna, the actor took things a notch higher with her accessories. Stacked bracelets, a statement cocktail ring and chunky earrings completed the look, along with smoky eyes & killer chrome nails.

 

Trendy transformation

Greetings from Greece

For host-model Padma Lakshmi, age is just a number as she opts for a Grecian chartreuse gown with a long trail and a plunging neckline. The bronze chain braid detail around her bust added visual depth to the draped stain chiffon number. Minimal jewellery in the form is Stacked bangles and a ring. She did choose to go OTT with her fuchsia pink lipstick.

An acid dream

Showcasing a tonal look, Ananya Panday paired her green acid wash distressed denim with a chartreuse off-the-shoulder knit. In this Gen Z-coded look with snap buttons at the sleeves and the waist that serve seemingly no purpose, the actor pulls off the edgy party look with panache.

A healthy balance

Slack co-founder Stewart Butterfield’s missing daughter ‘at risk’ due to ‘previous threat of suicide,’ cops say

Published

The runaway daughter of Slack co-founder Stewart Butterfield is believed to be “at risk” because of a “previous threat of suicide,” police have said. 16-year-old Mint Butterfield was reported missing earlier this week. The teen, who is non-binary and uses they/them pronouns, reportedly fled their mother’s home in Bolinas, California.

Flickr founder Caterina Fake, Mint’s mom, alerted authorities after finding a letter they had left behind. It is believed Mint could have been on her way to San Francisco’s very dangerous Tenderloin District neighbourhood.

“At this time, we have no information to believe that Mint was taken against their will. The Sheriff’s Office is considering Mint a voluntary-missing juvenile, who is “At- Risk” due to a reported previous threat of suicide,” a statement by the Marin’s County Sheriff’s office read.

How did Mint Butterfield leave the area?

Mint fled the house with a suitcase “during the night or early morning,” according to authorities. “Fake and Mint also share a home in San Francisco, and it is believed, based on statements from Fake, that Mint may have left for the Tenderloin District of San Francisco,” the statement says.

The sheriff’s office also noted that Mint did not have access to a phone or any kind of vehicle, so it is unclear how they left the area. The San Francisco Standard reported that Mint has a history of substance abuse. They had been living with their mother before they went missing. Mint was enrolled at a private school in the Napa area.

Mint was known for having frequently visited the Tenderloin area. The area is notorious for open-air drug markets, homelessness, and violent crimes.

“Marin County Deputies entered Mint into the Missing and Unidentified Persons System (MUPS) and sent out All Points Bulletin flyers to surrounding law enforcement agencies with a description and photograph of Mint,” the sheriff’s office said.

It added, “In collaboration with San Francisco Police Department, detectives from both agencies have attempted to find Mint, but have been unable to locate them.”

Mint’s father, Stewart, co-founded Slack back in 2013. He left the company after it was acquired by Salesforce for $28 billion in 2021.

The sheriff’s office has urged people with information on the incident or Mint’s whereabouts to contact the Marin County Sheriff’s Office at (415) 479-2311 or email tips@marinsheriff.org.

Discussing suicides can be triggering for some. However, suicides are preventable. If you or someone you know is considering suicide, please contact the National Suicide Hotline at 1-800-273-TALK (8255).

UWW threatens to suspend WFI and India’s wrestlers too

Published

By


Ten days after sports ministry told the Delhi High Court that it will neither recognise nor provide any support to Wrestling Federation of India (WFI), United World Wrestling (UWW) has warned that government interference could lead to WFI being suspended again. This time, the suspension could extend to the wrestlers as well.

In a strongly-worded letter signed by UWW president Nenad Lalovic, wrestling’s global governing body has reiterated its determination to uphold WFI’s independence and autonomy.

“We have been informed that the Wrestling Federation of India is once again threatened by your Ministry of Sports with the imposition of an ad hoc committee to oversee its affairs,” UWW wrote.

“In case any decision or order should be made against your federation, and a third party be designated to run the daily affairs of our sport in India in violation of the UWW Statutes, UWW would have no other option than to re-impose a temporary suspension of your federation until further notice, and which, this time, could maybe include your athletes.

This suspension would apply to the final Olympic Games Qualifying Tournament in May, and will certainly attract the attention of the IOC on this matter, who may also consider further action,” UWW noted.

On Wednesday, a day before UWW’s letter, WFI appointed the Athletes Commission in accordance with the world body’s demand. Former Commonwealth Games gold-medallist Narsingh Yadav was elected chairman of the commission.

Ban lifted in February

UWW had placed the WFI under provisional suspension in August 2023 after WFI’s continued delay in holding elections. The ban was lifted this February. A month later, Indian Olympic Association (IOA) reinstated WFI and dissolved the three-member ad hoc committee constituted to run the sport.

WFI, however, continues to remain under suspension since last December by the ministry. Earlier this month, the ministry told the Delhi High Court that it might review the suspension only after there is visible improvement in WFI’s governance.

The ministry, in the affidavit filed through standing counsel Anil Soni, added that it would treat any national championships or competitions organised by WFI as unsanctioned and unrecognised. The Sanjay Singh-led WFI has held national championships as well as selection trials for the Olympic qualifiers.

“It is further submitted that the Ministry is continuously monitoring the governance of the WFI and at present does not deem it appropriate at this stage to review its decision dated 24/12/2023. Any review will be undertaken only after marked and visible improvement its governance, demonstration of compliance of UWW’s order and IOA’s order dated 18.03.2024 and steps taken Expiry Date 15/03/2025 WFI with regard to its democratic functioning, adherence to the Government guidelines aiming towards good governance practices including grievance redressal mechanism and safety of wrestlers,” the ministry had told the court.

In an earlier hearing this month, the court had considered setting up an ad hoc committee for running WFI.

“UWW’s letter must be taken very seriously. WFI is an autonomous body and there is no need for ministry’s suspension or interference,” Sanjay Singh said.

“The fact that UWW’s ban may extend to the wrestlers is a first in our history. The government must allow us to function independently,” a senior WFI official said.

While WFI continues to grapple with the government, Indian wrestlers’ performance has been a major cause of concern. At the Asian Olympic Qualifiers in Bishkek last week, Indian bagged quotas through Vinesh Phogat (50kg), Anshu Malik, (57kg) and Reetika (76kg), adding to Antim Panghal’s 53kg berth. The male wrestlers, both freestyle and Greco Roman, drew a blank.
