‘Girl’ of the moment

Sedgwick biopic tweaked for preem

“It’s getting better all the time,” enthused Harvey Weinstein at Monday’s jam-packed after-party for the Weinstein Co. and MGM’s Edie Sedgwick ode “Factory Girl.”

Weinstein was referring to his just-unveiled acquisition, which had some last-minute reshoots and a brand-new cut in its premiere at the Ziegfeld Theater in Gotham.

Post-preem fete was held — appropriately — below the legendarily seedy downtown artists’ haunt the Chelsea Hotel.

Party’s accoutrements, however — including tank-topped babes in black, passing Red Bull and champagne, and a soundtrack of current hip-hop hits — didn’t quite match the pic’s oh-so-’60s premise.

Then again, maybe the ubiquitous slender cans of the Austrian energy drink served as updated replacements for the Campbell’s Soup can? And sampling certainly seems like a Warholian construct.

Overall, the affair at the subterranean sardine can was surprisingly casual, if not star-studded, with Sienna Miller and Guy Pearce mixing with the likes of Russell Simmons, Damon Dash and Sean Combs. There were likely some other bold-faced names skulking in the shadows: Guest Padma Lakshmi, of Bravo’s “Top Chef,” said the basement fete was “as dark as a high school party.”
