Vladimir Restoin Roitfeld-Hosted Art Opening After Party

>> Last night — with the help of a 2,000-strong crowd — curators and art dealers Vladimir Restoin-Roitfeld and Andy Valmorbida wrapped up their two-year, Giorgio Armani-sponsored global tour of artist Richard Hambleton's work. While most of their New York openings have been downtown, Restoin-Roitfeld and Valmorbida decided on Phillips de Pury & Company's uptown location on Park Avenue for last night's opening, gathering the entire Roitfeld clan, Giovanna Battaglia, and Lauren Santo Domingo for the occasion.

But that doesn't mean the group didn't head downtown eventually: after-party mode went into effect at Indochine, with Battaglia pantomiming "telephone" on a stiletto heel and Carine Roitfeld ordering up vodka straight.
