Bill Cunningham: Rain and Shine



This image of Bill Cunningham came through the Twitter feed this morning. It put a big smile on my face to see him going about his normal routine on a wet, leaf-filled post-Sandy street. There he was on his bike as usual, taking pictures of NYC’s most fashionable for the New York Times Style section, wearing his LL Bean boots and a blue rain poncho, instead of his usual blue workmans jacket. Truly there is no one more “Style of Sport” than Bill Cunningham!

Now if you have never seen “BILL CUNNINGHAM NEW YORK”, which is a charming, funny and touching portrait of this wonderful fashion icon, it’s available on DVD. Here is a little preview below.
