The Tallest Tower In The U.S. Is Being Built By A Woman

Nicole Dosso, technical director of 1 World Trade Center, is the most famous architect you’ve never heard of.

The column describes itself as “the most delicious fashion dish and ultra insider scoop.’ Sounds good to us!

Tom Ford, who has worked in Hollywood as the director/producer/co-writer of 2009 film ‘A Single Man,’ will no longer show at London Fashion Week.
