RICHIE RICH | DEREK WARBURTON at POP GALLERY
All the club kids were out at hours you wouldn’t expect them to be. Pop Gallery on West Broadway hosted a bevy of pretty boys and girls for the Derek Warburton-styled photos of BFF Richie Rich and Ross Higgins at the recent event. The rectangular gallery was lined with large photos shot by Christopher Logan. Derek greeted guest on the red carpet in his lavish turban, vamping it up in front of the camera and squealing as friend lauded the hyper-pigmented pics in Pop Luxe clothes, twisted silk turbans, blue lipstick, and neon pink braided horsehair glasses
Considering the fact that it’s bikini season there were no nibblies to be found, but a Medea Vodka bar downstairs whipped up some vodka lemonade cocktails with fresh strawberries. I chatted with Ritchie and Ross who were more than effusive on their experience working with Derek. “I mean, he’s our best friend,” gushed Ross who’s got the modeling thing down pat after so many years of being in front of the camera. Nicole Miller sidled up to the couple, and the three were instantly swarmed by photogs. As the mike was passed around, the crowd listened the sincerest of compliments. written by Elizabeth Landers.
“Everybody I love you, I’m Richie Rich. This shoot was one of the best days of my life. And trust me, I’ve been on a lot of photo shoots.” A Pop Luxe life it is!
