Occupation: American Business Woman, Interior Designer and Fashion Icon
This Queens native is dazzling with exquisite and wild style. Known for her black circular rimmed glasses and flamboyant wardrobe, this vivacious 90-year-old is hard not to notice. Her resume includes doing design restoration projects, including work in the White House for nine Presidents; Truman, Eisenhower, Nixon, Johnson, Carter, Reagan and Clinton. How could she not get a vote from me?
