It was a fabulous summer – one of the best so far – and I am definitely going to miss it. So much happened and I enjoyed every minute of it!

Spending time in Los Angeles with the family was super fun, and we even got BELLA on a few newsstands when we were there. No matter where we are, BELLA is never too far behind, and we love that now the women in LA can read along too and share in our message of “Beauty Defined By You.” Following that, we hosted our third annual (and most amazing) White Party in August at Beautique at the Capri Hotel in Southampton, with cover/host Lisa Vanderpump. All I can say is WOW … the sponsors, the venue, the guests, the celebs, the press…! It was so fabulous that we had to dedicate eight pages in our Around Town section to recap it all for you (don’t miss pages 156-163).

With summer behind us and a fabulous fall ahead, it was absolutely fitting to kick off the season with a fall fashion issue anchored by our exclusive with the newly married Nicky Hilton Rothschild. She was so lovely and gave BELLA’s Dana Priggé – and all of us – an amazing look into her world. Nicky is not only fashionable, she is everything the BELLA woman represents: class, inner beauty, humility, and grace, and we were thrilled to have her on this amazing cover.

Honestly, the entire issue is beyond fab – I love every single page and I think, as always, it’s our best issue yet. We have some pretty special features, with guest contributor supermodel and Tsunami survivor Petra Němcová interviewing world-renowned celebrity photographer and author John Russo, as well as a true look at New York fashion with our
fall fashion feature starring singer Alexa Ray Joel (yes, Billy Joel and Christie Brinkley’s daughter).

One last thing I wanted to share is that I have recently become a Special Correspondent for OK! TV and will be appearing every Wednesday talking about celebs, parties, and life in NYC. It is definitely something new and fun, and I am really looking forward to it. Love those new adventures!
