    Warhol first met Bianca Jagger in 1971, soon after her marriage to Mick Jagger, and he remembered being struck by her ‘raving beauty’, soft skin, and intelligence. They became good friends: in Warhol’s published diaries, which cover the years 1976 to 1987, she is mentioned constantly. Warhol repeatedly discusses her beauty, her clothes, her social activities, her men (Bianca and Mick divorced in 1978), and any gossip about her. 

    They often attended events together and this photograph was taken as Warhol, Bianca and several other close friends gathered at the apartment of the fashion designer Halston, before heading off in a limousine to an Elton John concert.


    Bianca Jagger frequently featured in Warhol’s Interview magazine and he devoted one chapter in his book Andy Warhol’s Exposures (1979) to her, writing:


    'Bianca Jagger is one of the most Socially Diseased people I know. She’s almost as bad as me – and I’m terminal. She loves to go out every night to the hottest spot in town and make a big dramatic entrance in a big dramatic dress. She always has a limousine. She always arrives with someone glamorous – a famous tennis player, or the handsome young heir to an international fortune, or a boy so beautiful he could be a girl but definitely isn’t.'
