Monday night's event at the Chelsea Hotel Storefront Gallery brought a flashback of the '70s as guests attended the Blondie Exhibition in celebration of the iconic band's 40th anniversary. Red wine and cocktails were shared among an exclusive crowd who all came to support Blondie and the photographers who captured the band as a work of art. Portraits of Debbie Harry and the band by Goldis, Roberta Bayley, Bobby Grossman, Bob Gruen, Anne Leibovitz, Robert Mapplethorpe, Mick Rock, and Chris Stein were hung against the white walls. We had a chance to chat with host Jeffrey Deitch about all things Blondie!
