Senior VP Angela Ahrendts attends NYC World Trade Center retail store grand opening

“Just a few weeks after opening its first retail store in Brooklyn, Apple debuted its ninth store in New York City on Tuesday, with the new World Trade Center location opening its doors ahead of the anticipated launch of the ‘iPhone 7,'” Neil Hughes reports for AppleInsider.

Very bold for Angela to shed the very-proper Burberry cachet and embrace America anew, in all its social schizophrenic glory.

      1. Well, it is a known fact that blonds have more fun (apparently, someone did a study and found out that women with blond hair are more popular and earn more money, among other things). It is just one of the weapons in the arsenal for moving forwards and upwards…
