For his part, Mr. Trump said his willingness to walk away from the Iran deal had set him up for success with Mr. Kim.

ByKate Guadagnino May 10, 2018 “My parents were clotheshorses,” says the New York-born fashion designer Andre Walker, remembering the wide-lapeled sport coats his father would import from the London tailor Cecil Gee.

ByVanessa Friedman April 25, 2018 On Wednesday night Meghan Markle finally walked down the wedding aisle, resplendent in a lacy, sparkling white dress. It was, of course, the “Suits” season finale, and she was marrying her on-show fiancé. But it was also a mere three weeks or so before Ms. Markle herself — biracial American, now former actress, divorcée, United Nations women’s advocate — will walk down the aisle in Windsor Castle to to marry her real fiancé, Prince Harry (beloved royal soldier and hell raiser turned mental health activist). That made for a digital frenzy about what may be coming, which is only going to grow as the days wind … [Read more...] about The Biggest Influencer of All?
