The Steelers rock their style at Heinz Field
When it comes to the Steelers, they’re always in style.
After “parading” last year completely virtually for Rock Steelers Style, the team’s annual fashion show, this year the team made a mix of in-person and virtual elements to show off their fashion, their style. and their fun side for fans as part of Steelers Nation Rocks Steelers Style, presented by Neighborhood Ford Store, PNC Bank, UPMC and UPMC Health Plan.
With the live appearances coming from the PNC Champions Club at Heinz Field, there was definitely a sense of the match day vibe.
Linebacker TJ Watt and offensive tackle Zach Banner were on hand as honorary co-captains, bringing their personalities to the stage.
“It’s a lot of fun. I think a lot of guys are really getting into it,” Watt said. “I think a lot of guys have a great fashion sense. I’m not one of those guys. I hope I put something together.
“Whenever we have fun at an event like this, we have to remember that it’s about giving back and helping others. That’s what I love so much about this organization. C ‘is so much deeper than football. It’s about helping as many charities as we can. “
Rock Steelers Style, co-chaired by Art and Greta Rooney and Mike and Kiya Tomlin, benefits the UPMC Sports Medicine Concussion Program, Cancer Bridges and the Chuck Noll Foundation.
“It’s always fun,” Banner said. “It’s for a good cause and it’s always fun. You have to be creative to create an environment for philanthropy and to give back. Unfortunately, people want to be entertained when they talk about giving back, and that’s a good way to do it. “
A virtual Terrible Towel Twirl that brought together fans, Steelers legends and celebrity fans kicked off the evening, creating a festive mood. From Hall of Famers like Joe Greene, Troy Polamalu, Franco Harris, Dermontti Dawson, Rod Woodson and Alan Faneca and all his family to smiling kids and even underwater fans, it was electric.
“Thank you all for being here tonight in the studio and all of you at home watching,” Steelers president Art Rooney II said. “It’s great to have everyone on board. It’s a little different setup this year, but we’re making progress.”
The swimsuit scene provided a quick introduction to what to expect throughout the night, before it was time to define the fashion scene.
