Bill Cunningham New York
Time Out says
‘The best fashion show is on the street,’ says Cunningham and his weekly column is a snapshot of the city as much as fashion. That he is an institution is clear from the A-list New Yorkers interviewed, including Tom Wolfe and Vogue editor Anna Wintour (‘If he ignores you it’s death’). As for Cunningham, he’s a treat to watch. An eccentric to his bones, he lives as frugally as a monk, sleeping on a fold-up bed in his tiny studio. He’s got an irresistible gee-whizz ’50s charm (‘Let’s get snapping and cracking’) and seems to live on adrenaline, exuding the pure joy of a man who has found his calling and won’t be retiring anytime soon.
