When it comes to A-list events it doesn’t get more fabulous than the launch of Mauricio and Roger Padilha's latest book for Rizzoli; Richard Bernstein: STARMAKER, Andy Warhol's Cover Artist. Sponsored by FHI Heat, a world-renowned provider of professional hair care products and styling tools, the PUBLIC Arts concert hall came alive with enlarged artwork and cut outs of Bernstein's iconic celebrity portraits, spanning from 1972 to 1989.
