BELLO mag April 2015 ‘Luxe’ Issue #69 Now Available – Exclusive Preview!


69 is a good number don’t you think? Today our latest BELLO mag issue is out and available worldwide to download. On the main cover of this ‘Luxe’ issue we have the iconic Dita Von Teese.



Ah, luxury…

…a word with different meanings for each of us. For me, the highest form of luxury is peace, silence and relaxation…enjoying nature, drinking ice tea while reading an interesting book, or conversing with the love of my life. For someone else, “luxury” could be something different. So in this issue, we have tried to mix a variety of things that may cover the various facets of this enigmatic concept.
On our main cover, Dita Von Teese is the epitome of luxe, and is a perfect fit for this issue. Within her interview, interesting and before unknown parts of her personality, which all those adoring fans from around the world would surely love to learn, are uncovered. Our issue continues with our other covers, each as fabulous as the last, featuring the leads on some of the most popular TV shows right now, from Empire to Outlander, from Vikings to Undatable.
This issue is so eclectic – just like life itself – and was so fun to work on. We hope you enjoy it, and that it will inspire you to define what luxe means to you.

First of all, excuse my French! … I was born in the South of France. Lived in Paris for 10 years and travelled the world until I moved to Los Angeles in 2008, because obviously recession was a great time to move to a new country! I also arrived around Halloween and was greeted at the Social Security offices by a nurse who directed to the window Number 6 so a witch could hand me my social security number. Welcome to America. I am a painter, a photographer and the creative director of BELLO mag.

    I was wondering if I am able to order the copy that has Lana Parrilla on the front. I was told it would be on the shelf for the first week of May but I cannot find it. If you could send me a link to buy it, I would appreciate it. Thanks
