Cover
Cathy St. George photographed by Tom Staebler
Cathy St. George, one of our West Coast make-up assistants and an upcoming Playmate (it is possible for a Playmate to be the girl next door), is the lady in the tux. Art Director Tom Staebler photographed her for our cover, which he says was inspired by a favorite Vargas illustration. Funny how some women can wear a tuxedo well and others can't. It all depends, we suspect, on wearing the right cuff links.
