FROM THE EDITOR-IN-CHIEF Courtenay Hall, The Glam Issue 2017

Hello, New Year!

I love the start of a new year…it makes you feel like you have flipped open the new chapter of a book and all is new again. Although 2016 was a wonderful and exhausting year, I am so looking forward to what lies ahead in 2017.

I think the cover line of this issue, “The GLAM Issue,” says it all–actress Jaimie Alexander certainly is in a stunning gold dress by one of my favorite designers, CD Greene. We photographed this cover at the famed Plaza Hotel in New York City, and what a cover story it turned out to be!

As we enter our 7th year at BELLA, I am feeling grateful and humbled by how far we have come. Last year we launched our sister publication, BELLA Los Angeles, and hope to launch in additional markets in the coming months and years. No matter what we go through personally, professionally, or as a nation (I know 2016 was a rough one!), we always come together for the common good, each other, goodness, and sharing a positive message of love and light. That’s what I hope to continue to do throughout this year and for many years to come.

I thank you for your love and support, and look forward to another six great issues in 2017!
