15 minutes of fame

Tuesday, September 6, 1983.
"Pia had on a beautiful ring - a diamond with blue sapphires, and she was wearing a Bob Mackie, red, white, and with a blue star. It really was a beautiful dress. Slit up to the ass and when the wind blew once, one of the photographers groaned, "Oh my God I missed a pussy shot." And the funniest line was one Benjamin heard. When they showed the portraits, one of the photographers said, "How could Andy Warhol sink to such mediocrity?" and the photographer he said "What do you mean? He’s famous for sinking to mediocrity.”

"Bob picked me up in a limo and we picked up São to go to the Jackie O. party for Diana Vreeland’s book Allure at the International Center for Photography at 94th and Fifth. It was a small party, only seventy people were allowed. São said that a robbery was just foiled at the Carlyle. Three gunmen at 4 A.M. I scared her when I told her they were probably there because they knew she was. And I believe that.
Jackie O. arrived. I was afraid to take pictures so I gave one of the newspaper photographers my camera to take a picture with. Chris Hemphill who worked on the book was in heaven, he made it so that I had to sit next to him. He’s just always rubbed me the wrong way. And on the jacket it was said he was (laughs) “associated with Andy Warhol.” His date was Deborah Turbeville. A trembling kid behind a stairway asked if he could take my picture. He said, “I’m an artist.”
