Everything was Warhol and The Factory, as guests recreated the breakthrough era of Pop Art for newportFILM's 3rd annual "Friendraiser": WARHOL, held at Christie's, Newport. Guests got into the spirit of the 1980's with incarnations of artists, Nico, Steve Rubell of Studio 54, and other pop stars, and swirled against a backdrop of recreated pop paintings. Campbell's soup cans became couture. How many Andy Warhols look-alikes were there? Let us count the wigs........
Look for our annual Palm Beach issue, including the 51st Heart Ball at The Breakers, the fabulous Jewelry, Art & Antique Show, and a private cocktail party for the Sintessi Jewel Collection on Worth Avenue benefiting the NYC Mission Society. Don't miss it!
