Gabrielle Union just proved that glitter is always a girl’s best friend.

Yesterday, at stepdaughter Zaya Wade’s 14th birthday party, the actress and her husband, Dwyane Wade, teaching their 2-year-old daughter, Kaavia, how to roller skate. The “Bring it On” star wore a bedazzled oversized Magda Butrym blazer, pairing the statement piece with black biker shorts and a black undershirt.

For footwear, Union kept with the color theme of silver, black and white in a low-top, black sneaker with white threading. She also accessorized with a diamond necklace and wore her hair in a slicked back, braided ponytail.

The entire Wade family, even their youngest daughter, Kaavia, 2, is often styled by celebrity stylist, Thomas Christos Kikis. Avidly posting on social media to display the fun family looks Kikis dresses each of them in, Union has attributed her best looks to him. Thomas Christos Kikis’ other celebrity clients range from Anna Sophia Robb to Busy Phillips.

Union herself is no rookie to the fashion industry, as the movie star has had past partnerships with New York & Co. which granted her the opportunity to co-design a few seasonal collections. Each capsule collection represented the star’s style accurately, showcasing sophisticated looks with modern twists.

Key Highlights

  • Omicron variant’s scientific name is B.1.1.529

  • Omicron is the 15th letter of the Greek alphabet

  • India has not reported any cases of Omicron variant so far

Omicron, the new variant of COVID-19 that has become a cause of concern around the world. Around 20 countries and territories now have suspected or confirmed COVID-19 cases of the Omicron variant. While no cases of the Omicron variant have been reported from India so far, people are having a hard time pronouncing the name of the Omicron variant.

The scientific name of the Omicron variant is B.1.1.529. The COVID-19 variant of concern gets its name from the 15th letter of the Greek alphabet. However, unlike alpha or delta variants, many people are left rolling their eyes while pronouncing the word Omicron.

How to pronounce Omicron

The Cambridge Dictionary states two different English pronunciations of Omicron – 

“oh-MY-cron” for British English and “OH-mi-cron” for American English.

The Omicron variant was first reported in South Africa on November 24.

When the COVID-19 variants became a cause of concern for the general public, many people started referring to them by name of the country where they were first detected, leading to stigmatisation. To avoid this, the Greek alphabets were chosen to name the variants.

WHO skipped two letters of the Greek alphabet – Nu and Xi – while naming the new variant. “‘Nu’ is too easily confounded with ‘new,’ and ‘Xi’ was not used because it is a common last name,” WHO said in a statement. 

Meanwhile, India reported 8,954 new coronavirus infections on Wednesday, taking the total tally of COVID-19 cases to 3,45,96,776. The active COVID-19 cases were recorded at less than a lakh after 547 days. The active cases have declined to 99,023. The national COVID-19 recovery rate has improved to 98.36 per cent, the highest since March 2020, the Union Health Ministry said.

David Dastmalchian boards cast of Keira Knightley-led ‘Boston Strangler’ movie

Published

on

Los Angeles:

The film is inspired by the infamous Boston Strangler murders that happened between June 1962 and January 1964. 13 women were murdered during that period by a serial killer.

The film will follow the true story of Loretta McLaughlin (Knightley), the first reporter to connect the murders and break the story of the Strangler.

She and fellow reporter Jean Cole challenged the sexism of the early 1960s to report on the city”s most notorious serial killer and worked tirelessly to keep women informed.

Loretta pursued the story at great personal risk and uncovered corruption that cast doubt on the true identity of the Boston Strangler.

The film’s cast also includes Carrie Coon, Alessandro Nivola and Chris Cooper.

”Boston Strangler” will be produced by veteran filmmaker Ridley Scott along with Kevin Walsh through their Scott Free banner. Tom Ackerley and Josey McNamara of LuckyChap Entertainment are also backing the film.

The film will start production later this month.
