Thrilling nearly 800 fans of football and fashion was Troy Polamalu's 4-year-old son, Paisios, who strolled the runway with his dad and little brother Ephraim during the sold-out Steeler Style fashion show Friday night.
It wasn't his red Michael Jackson-style jacket or his famous father that had fans cheering, but the little guy's big dance moves. The evening's honorary co-captains Brett Keisel and Maurkice Pouncey didn't disappoint, either, showing off their favorite non-uniform looks.
Heinz Field's Club East Lounge was rocking with black and gold chic especially with the addition of the Steeler Style Lounge shopping boutique during this year's fashion show to benefit UPMC Sports Medicine Concussion Program, The Thomas E. Starzl Transplantation Institute and Cancer Caring.
The event, chaired by Greta and Art Rooney II and Kiya and Mike Tomlin, also featured the Pittsburgh debut of the NFL's collaboration with fashion designer Marchesa. The T-shirts were on sale along other Steeler merchandise. Shoppers included Dr. Thomas and Joy Starzl, Athena Sarris, Chris and Erin Behnke, Micky Collins, Clyde Jones, Andrea Carelli and Michael Toretti, Cindy Citrone, Concussion Program director Gary Dubin and Cancer Caring director Rebecca Whitlinger.
The enthusiasm for making the right moves definitely translated onto Heinz Field Sunday when the model players grounded the Philadelphia Eagles.
