Glass Bar Danglings Over A Cliff In The State Of Georgia.

Due to its mild ale, you might first need to consume a serving of alcohol before you can even think about heading to the drinking establishment. At Dashbashi Canyon, a 240-meter-long (787 feet) glass pedestrian bridge in the shape of a "diamond" suspended to a "peak" was designed. The transparent, steel and glass structure, which rises to 280 meters—or about 919 feet—and spans across the natural monument, offers panoramic views of its stunning waterfalls and caves.

Hunter Wears That Uber Third Rare Tom Ford-Era Gucci Top.

Earlier this week, Halsey stepped out in a pair of slinky trousers with an overlay of mesh shorts; up top, she wore a Tom Ford-era Gucci tank top.

On the runway, the piece was styled with a matching skirt that also included the embedded leather straps. The original price tag shows that this piece retailed for $980 as part of the spring/summer 1998 collection at Gucci. Halsey’s stylist Lyn Alyson took to Instagram to credit Tab Vintage for helping her source it—and for anyone who wants to buy their own versio...
