LET­TER FROM THE PUBLISHER

Vegas Magazine - - Contents -

In a city where culi­nary mas­ters, en­ter­tain­ers, and artists all take cen­ter stage, and our Ve­gas celebri­ties are so pub­lic and ac­ces­si­ble, they of­ten in­flu­ence us even more than they know (or maybe even want).

Las Ve­gas is full of in­flu­en­tial women, many of whom are fea­tured in this is­sue. With such head­lin­ers Cher, Brit­ney, Ce­line, and Jen­nifer Lopez dom­i­nat­ing the mu­sic scene, in­ter­na­tional con­tem­po­rary artist Elena Bu­la­tova giv­ing us a taste of “the sweet life,” jew­elry de­signer Ken­dra Scott and star chefs Lorena Gar­cia and Carla Pel­le­grino and restau­ra­teur El­iz­a­beth Blau to name a few, I’m cel­e­brat­ing their many ac­com­plish­ments in our an­nual “Women of In­flu­ence” is­sue.

Grow­ing up I was known as a “daddy’s girl,” and while my fa­ther, who I miss dearly, had a def­i­nite in­flu­ence, it is now when I re­flect that I see what a huge in­flu­ence my mother has al­ways been. For that, I’d like to pay a spe­cial trib­ute to her. It’s my mother who in­stilled my early drive for in­de­pen­dence and taught me valu­able sur­vivor­ship skills at an early age. And it’s the strong women in my fam­ily, as well as friends and busi­ness as­so­ciates, that have been the “wind be­neath my wings.” (You know who you are!) I hope you’ll take a mo­ment to think about the in­flu­en­tial women in your life, too.

Cheers!
