Barbi Benton photographed by Richard Fegley
Great to see those eyes again, isn't it? They belong to one of our all-time faves, Barbi Benton, looking good in a cover photo by Contributing Photographer Richard Fegley and a $65,000 natural Russian crown-sable coat from Somper Furs, Beverly Hills. Is there anything we neglected to mention? Oh, yes. You'll see more Barbi in Barbi, beginning on page 158.
