FROM THE EDITOR-IN-CHIEF: The Holiday Issue, 2016

I can’t believe it’s that time of year again…the holidays in NYC. In my opinion, it’s the best time of the year in our beautiful city. There is a magical feeling as you walk down the streets with the lights all aglow, holiday songs playing, and feelings of giving and joy in abundance.

With that said, there was no better choice for our holiday cover than quintessential New Yorkers (and my favorite morning duo) Kathie Lee and Hoda. These ladies exude everything BELLA looks for when selecting a cover feature, and I am thrilled to share this fun and exclusive interview with you!

Of course, the holiday cheer doesn’t end there—we also sat down with some of Hollywood’s biggest stars: Kiefer Sutherland goes country in “Up Close and Personal,” and Jerry Ferrara talks all about how he went from Brooklyn to Hollywood in “The New York Life.” You will also find gift guides galore with something for everyone on your list, trips of a lifetime, holiday fashion and beauty tips, as well as an inside look at some of our most fabulous fall parties in NY and LA.

For everything BELLA and more exclusive content that you can only find online, check out and our west coast counterpart

I wish you a fabulous and festive holiday season!
