CoverErika Eleniak photographed by Stephen Wayda
Our gala Christmas issue—filled with fabulous femmes and literary lights—delivers the goods. So does cover model Erika Eleniak. Our cover was designed by Senior Art Director Len Willis, styled by Lee Ann Perry and shot by Contributing Photographer Stephen Wayda. Kudos to John Victor for styling Erika's hair, Pat Tomlinson for makeup, N. H. Rosenthal Furs of Chicago. Erika's earrings are by Rokoff for Judith King. "Great back rub," quips our Rabbit.
