Fashion Documentary - Bill Cunningham New York

Hello My Loves


"We all get dressed for Bill" - Anna Wintour




I stumbled upon this documentary while wanting something to watch last weekend. The weekends in my house consist of my hubbie shouting abuse at the television as he watches football! (I don't understand how he enjoys watching football because he nearly raises my blood pressure from the stress of it!)  
I normally meet friends for lunch, but as I am near my due date, I am chilling out more. So I stocked up on Lindt chocolate and lay in bed to watch a documentary and generally be a lazy slob for the day!



Legendary New York Times photographer, Bill Cunningham is the focus of this documentary.  Bill has been photographing street style and society events for the newspaper for decades.  A somewhat reclusive icon himself, he has an impeccable eye for style, trends and people.  

Despite knowing incredibly affluent and influential people like Anna Wintour and Brooke Astor, Bill is not impressed by how much money or the labels people have but rather their sense of style, how they wear their clothes and the story their outfit tells.  He comes across as very lovable and down to earth.

I absolutely adored this documentary.  It had me enthralled right from the beginning.  It is a wonderful story of a man who adores his career, is fantastic at his work and essentially lives through it.  It is also incredibly refreshing to see, in this age of Kardashians, someone totally unaffected by money and fame.

I am a big documentary fan and fashion is one of my favourite topics as you may have guessed from this blog!  If you want some of my other fashion documentary recommendations I have made in a previous post then click here

I would love to hear if you have any documentary recommendations for me, fashion or otherwise.  

Love, Mini

  11. I'm going to bookmark this post to remind me to watch this documentary on a later date. I'll need to watch alone because hubby would rather ram his head into a wall then watch this sort of stuff with me. LOL! And don't get me started on the Kardashians, they are everything that is wrong with our society today.
