Top customer reviews
The bewigged Warhol is definitely a supporting player in this flashy, name-dropping memoir, but fortunately Fraser-Cavassoni's jet-set life, celebrity encounters and high-profile jobs make for a fast read and a gossipy good time. With jobs at Interview, Women's Wear Daily and W magazines, she was at all the art, fashion and film parties. Anna Wintour helped her get hired working under Karl Lagerfeld at the Chanel Studio, while aging cosmetics pioneer Estée Lauder threatened to have her deported.
When the focus turns to Warhol and the running of his empire after his early death (he died at 58 from complications after gall bladder surgery), Fraser-Cavassoni offers a front row seat at the jockeying for power, the marketing of his image and the posthumous publication of Warhol's diaries in 1989, which caused uproar among fashionable society. AFTER ANDY reads like a delicious gossip column covering the wild antics of those in the art and fashion world.
Natasha Fraser-Cavassoni's AFTER ANDY shares her deliciously gossipy view of the fashion/film/art world from her front row seat at Andy Warhol's studio.
I was a little bit on the periphery (but nowhere near its center like Fraser-Cavassoni) so I loved her insider view, and her honesty. She has a keen eye for observation -- but is not unkindly or snide (and is not afraid to look at herself, either). She is also a crackerjack writer, and I sincerely hope that she writes another volume as a continuation -- would snap it up in a second... I want to know what happens next!
