Courtenay Hall-Summer issue

Don’t miss a beat! Click HERE to become a BELLA Insider!


I love everything about it: the warm, gorgeous days, traveling with the family, and of course our summer Hamptons party in August!

When I was preparing for this issue I spent a lot of time thinking about who I would want to host our annual event, and Lisa Vanderpump
was the first to come to mind. Not only is she the beautiful star of two of BRAVO’s hottest shows, but she is also a successful restaurateur, entrepreneur, wife, mother, and advocate. Really, she is the embodiment of the BELLA woman, and I was thrilled when she agreed to do it!

We shot Lisa’s amazing cover story with the uber talented celeb photographer John Russo at her Beverly Hills home in May, and the images were so stunning, I decided to turn it into an eight- page feature (our first), as I couldn’t bear to cut any of it. I think you will be as blown away as we were when you read it!

But that’s just the beginning of the summer star wattage in our annual Hamptons issue! We have a wonderful “Stars of Summer” feature, in addition to two of this season’s hottest male stars, Juan Pablo DiPace of “A.D.” and Adam Rodriguez of “Magic Mike” and “Empire.” Now that’s a star lineup, all written by BELLA’s amazing Entertainment Editor Alexandra Anastasio, who always delivers an exceptional in-depth piece. You know the ones – where you finish reading feeling like you truly know a lot more about the person than before you started. That exclusive access is what BELLA’s all about. We love to provide our readers with an inside, behind-the-scenes look at their favorite stars.

Another exciting addition to this issue is a new page called “My Favorite Things,” where I’m showcasing brands and products I cannot live without this season. It’s fun and flirty, and I hope you enjoy the recommendations I’ve personally handpicked. Check it out on page 26.

As always, you will find everything you need to live your most BELLA life within this issue: Beauty, Fashion, Travel, Wellness, Celebrity, Arts & Culture, Dining, and some amazing Around Town pages, where we highlight our memorable BELLA events both in NYC and LA. In fact, we co-hosted our first LA event this past May with contributor Jordana Woodland at her gorgeous Naked Princess Flagship store. It was a huge success; see for yourself on page 150! Yes, the BELLA brand

is expanding to the west coast, and I couldn’t be more thrilled!

I hope you all have a fantastic time during these summer months (I know I will), and I look forward to your feedback on the issue.

Safe travels, and be well!
