"Indeed, Ms. Jones said that she and Bernstein served as mutual muses for each other. He did the artwork for her first single, "I Need A Man," and then for every one of her albums up to 1980's Warm Leatherette. Bernstein also worked with artist Antonia López on Ms. Jones' 1986 vampire movie, Vamp. And she said it was Bernstein's idea to dress her as a luminescent chandelier for her dramatic performance of "La Vie en Rose" at a tribute to the artist Erté at the Metropolitan Museum of Art." --[1]

Richard Bernstein (October 31, 1939 – October 18, 2002) was an American graphic designer. Frank DiGiacomo notes that "for 15 years, beginning in 1972, Bernstein's signature artwork illustrated the monthly covers of Interview magazine, the celebrity chronicle of the social, fashion and art crowd that had met in Andy Warhol's Factory and the back room of Max's Kansas City in the 1960s and catalyzed in the sybaritic heat of Studio 54 in the late 1970s."

Loleatta Holloway covers

According to the original press bio that accompanied Loleatta Holloway's "Love Sensation", the paintings of on the album jackets of "Loleatta" (1979) and "Love Sensation", were done by artist/photographer Richard Bernstein "known for his unique covers on Andy Warhol's Interview Magazine". Bernstein's intention was reportedly to "bring out the softness, sensitivity and sexiness, inherent in Holloway".
