Brigitte Nielsen photographed Stephen Wayda
When Brigitte Nielsen split from ex-hubby Sly Stallone, she didn't want to talk about it. Still, her face and figure speak volumes, as you'll see in Gitte the Great. This cover photo was produced by West Coast Photography Editor Marilyn Grabowski and shot by Contributing Photographer Stephen Wayda. Gitte's_ dress is from Addictions, Los Angeles, and her jewelry is courtesy of M Gallery, Los Angeles. The Rabbit is as handy as ever.
