Movers and Shakers: Shoshanna Lonstein Gruss


Here at StyleCaster, we have a heavy appreciation for all things intelligent (after all, we do employ the world’s most sophisticated personalization technology to bring you style tailored just for your tastes and weather). That’s why we’re so impressed with Fame Game, a site that uses a complex series of algorithms and formulas to track an individual’s rise to fame. It’s an interesting study to observe who is currently rising to the top as opposed to who is lacking attention these days.

As an homage to Fame Game, I’ll be posting about their latest Movers and Shakers whose attention stats are rising the fastest week by week. This week’s gal of the moment? Shoshanna Lonstein Gruss, designer of pretty dresses and swimwear, and general friendly face on the scene.
