Andy's Fifteen Minutes

As far back as I can remember, I've always wanted to live in New York. I was trying to figure out why recently and I am starting to think it might have had something to do with Andy Warhol. Andy was from Pittsburgh which was about an hour from where I grew up so he was often talked about in the media and his world sounded like so much fun to me. I always lamented the fact that I was born too late to have danced at Studio 54 and even more so that I would never be able to have my portrait done by Andy. (I liked to dream big even when I was little!) That's probably also part of the reason I always notice a Warhol when I see them in a magazine especially when someone is photographed under their own portrait! I supposed I could make do by buying someone else's portrait someday but it's just not the same so maybe I'll stick to the flowers! Enjoy!

Lucky Diane von Furstenberg has many Warhols of herself!

This one resides in her Paris apartment.

Carolina Herrera still looks exactly like her Warhol!

Princess Marie-Chantal and family stand in front of her two Warhols, which must have been done during her big hair days in the 80's!

Art collector Aby Rosen and his wife Samantha Boardman have bought up quite a few Warhol portraits!

Aby Rosen even keeps a few Warhols in his office.
