You don’t have to know Christophe to enjoy the video where he ‘relives the moment’– Christophe’s natural gifts tells it all. “I can’t relive the emotions, but I can recap the moment thirty years later,” says Christophe. He was on assignment for Vanity Fair when he captured this veritable time capsule treasure of celebrity.
On April 1, 1987, two thousand invited guests arrived on foot, taxi and limousine at Fifth Avenue and 50th Street and walked through a throng of curious onlookers held back by NYPD wooden barriers. Stationed in front of the Cathedral, von Hohenberg took over 300 photos of what Grace Glueck of the New York Times called the “most droppable names” in the world of Hollywood, fashion, music, international society and art. Von Hohenberg captured an epochal era that Warhol helped shape.
