From the Runway to the Red carpet - the fiery hue is making a comeback this festive season. The Power Red, as we call it, is the go-to colour for celebs like Priyanka Chopra, Victoria Beckham and a host of big apple designers.
Red symbolizes love, passion, desire, the devil, rage, bullfighting, blood, courage and it's also associated with the masculine planet Mars.
Moreover, part of red's allure is that it catches attention, hence it's a winning way to make a strong statement. Who can possibly forget Marilyn Monroe's 1965 Lace sweetheart dress or Cindy Crawford's 1991 plunging Versace gown?
Red has been omnipresent across fashion eras. With so many collections to pull from, the bold lipstick, the soles of designer shoes, statement couture piece, leather of biker jackets, etc., red has permeated into all elements to take life of its own.
Simply put, red is the colour of a woman in charge. As we know it already - Spring 17 Runway invited us to revisit the striking hue with party dresses, tulles, vinyl trench - which spawned a dozen of imitations.
In case you are feeling less daring, a bold red boot or red stiletto is a subtler way to dip your toe in the trend. For a slightly deeper commitment, having a smartphone will surely please fashionistas in search of a strong red statement.
OPPO F3 has recently launched its red variant, for those who are unaware, the previous variants have been launched in Rose Gold and Black colour, which give it a unisexual and a more utilitarian appeal.
The handset comes with a full-metal unibody and rear camera on top left along with the LED Flash. The OPPO F3 Red comes with a dual front camera with 16 megapixel lens and a wide-angle lens for taking perfect group selfies.
Besides the dual selfie cam, it comes with a built-in facial recognition feature to switch focal modes. It is also equipped with the Octa core processor and 64 GB internal storage, which can be expanded up to 128 GB via micro SD slots. The device runs on Android Marshmallow 6 with OPPO's COLORUI 3.0 running on top of it.
And what other colour could possibly complement with Diwali? It's that time of the year when everybody wants to capture mesmerizing lights to happy family portraits.
Hence, the new edition also comes preloaded with festive themes and wallpapers. For selfie-obsessed fashionistas, looks like the perfect partner has indeed arrived.
