Elana feeds Ricki a pretzel

Elana is a Fashion News intern at Teen Vogue and we found each other outside of the Apple Store on Fifth Avenue and Central Park South.    The first time I spotted Elana was at New York Fashion Week last September in a gorgeous Rag and Bone dress.   As you can see, we had a bit of fun as we bought a pretzel off a street vendor to feed Ricki the horse, stood inside Central Park and shot Columbus Circle in the background,  and then got a bit creative at the end with the tree branches.
