Early endeavors and "Interview" magazine
Colacello began his writing career in 1969, when he began publishing film reviews in the "
Village Voice" weekly. As a graduate student in the Film department at Columbia University in New York, his first publications doubled as his class essays and homework assignments. In 1970, Colacello wrote a review of Andy Warhol's film "Trash", which he hailed as a "great Roman Catholic masterpiece". This review garnished the attention of Warhol, and Paul Morrissey, the director of many of Warhol's films, who approached Colacello to write for "Interview magazine", a new art/film/fashion magazine Warhol had recently began to publish. Colacello was made editor of "Interview" within six months, and for the next 12 years, Colacello remained directly involved in all aspects of life and business at The Factory, Warhol's infamous studio, as he developed the magazine into one of the best-known lifestyle magazines of the time. At one point, Warhol suggested Colacello change his name to Bob Cola, in order to sound more "pop."
After his tenure with "Interview", Colacello began writing for "Vanity Fair" magazine, and has been a regular contributor since, writing extended profiles on a wide range of public personalities, including
Prince Charlesand Camilla Parker Bowles, Balthus, Rudolf Nureyev, Liza Minnelli, Estee Lauder, Doris Duke, and Naomi Campbell. Colacello has also established himself as one of the most prolific biographical writers in the United States. He is the author of the highly praised ', about the social and political rise of Ronald Reaganand his wife Nancy Reagan. His memoir of working with Andy Warhol in the 1970s and early 1980s, titled ', was called the "best-written and the most killingly observed" book on the subject by the " New York Times" [cite news |first= |last= |authorlink= |coauthors= |title= The Artist as Icon, Busybody and Chief Executive |url=http://query.nytimes.com/gst/fullpage.html?res=9C0CE1DD1F3EF93AA3575BC0A966958260&scp=1&sq=Holy%20Terror%20Andy%20Warhol%20Close%20Up&st=cse
