Natalie Levy Bencheton photographed by Christian Moser
The delicacy offered as this month's cover comes not from the nearby patisserie but from the camera of Christian Moser and the office of our French edition in Paris. We think it's the best Franco-American product since SpaghettiOs. The lady is Natalie Levy Bencheton, a mademoiselle whose modeling career lasted only six months. Now she lives with her husband in Paris and throws an occasional soiree. We're glad Moser got our cover shot before Natalie got up and slipped away.
