New York Fashion Week (NYFW) kicked off with supermodels Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner walking the ramp at Tom Ford’s star-studded show, the first major event of the week. Front row celebs included Cindy Crawford, Julianne Moore and a spandex-clad Kim Kardashian West, who also made heads turn with her new white-grey hairstyle.

Tom Ford opened NYFW with sophisticated glamor of the '90s, showcasing a color palette of white and black speckled with lavender, sienna, sapphire blue and shocking pink. The outfits ranged from day-wear pantsuits, structured dinner jackets, athletic shorts, leather trench coats to glam sequined gowns and evening wear.

Hadid walked in a soft pink, ruched figure-hugging dress, with shoulder pads and metallic chain mail sleeves. Jenner wore a similar black sheer gown with one chainmail sleeve and an asymmetrical halter-neck strap. Dramatic cat eyes upped the glamor quotient as Ford said that this collection was inspired by his living in L.A. He said, “I’ve been living in L.A. and people wear sports clothes in the daytime, and in the evening they wear mega evening wear,” and added that he wanted the clothes to look “luxe.”

Ford has earlier incorporated aesthetically pleasing aspects of men’s wear into women’s formal and semi-formal wear. For this collection, he created a female version of his men’s suit, tailored specifically for women, with broad-shouldered jackets that have striking lapels materials.

The show was held at the Park Avenue Armory and featured his latest fragrance, “F—ing Fabulous.’ His make-up brand is the second-fastest-selling beauty range ever, earning revenues of $500 million in 10 years. Tom Ford is acknowledged as revitalizing Gucci and Yves Saint Laurent as their creative director. The celebrated designer also directed last year's Oscar-nominated Nocturnal Animals.

Hanging out with friends or coworkers at the pub or meeting someone over brunch, most of our social interactions involve some amount of alcohol consumption. Let’s face it, it feels great to unwind on a Friday night with some beers or with glasses of mimosas on a warm Sunday afternoon while enjoying the company of our favorite people.

But at some point, we may unconsciously cross the line from being social drinkers to drinking alone regularly, becoming so dependent on it that it starts affecting our health, relationships and work.

The Royal College of Psychiatrists say that alcohol is a like a tranquilizer and causes much more harm than illegal drugs like heroin and cannabis. Since we underestimate how much we drink or the effect it has on our body, it is very easy to get addicted to it. Experts warn that millions across the world are alcohol-dependent mainly because of the peer pressure to drink, easy availability, social normalization and self-denial about its effects.

The AUDIT or the Alcohol Use Disorders Identification Test has been created with the World Health Organisation which consists of 10 questions that will help determine if someone is addicted to alcohol:

Are you alcohol-dependent? Answer these 10 questions and find out

Once you answer the questions and add your scores, read below to know your risk of alcohol related problems:

0-7: Minimal risk of alcohol abuse. You are within reasonable limits.

8-15: Medium risk. You may develop health problems, depressions or relationship issues. It is advisable cut down consumption.

16-19: High risk. You may be dependent and require professional help from your doctor or counselor to help cutting back on your current level of usage,

20 and over: Possible dependence. You are already having health and personal problems due to drinking and are likely dependent. You may have to be admitted to a detox center or hospital to deal with withdrawal symptoms.

If you fall in the high-risk category, it is important to cut down gradually and seek professional help to determine the safest procedure to withdraw from drinking. If you are still at low to medium risk, choose low-alcohol content beverages and set personal targets to reduce consumption.
