My Mr. Rogers

DVF Dress

It might sound a bit kooky and ridiculous, but I can now check off a moment from my bucket list.

I have been a long time admirer and fanatic of Bill Cunningham. The idea of going to the DVF show not only excited me because I am a huge fan of Diane’s, but I know that every year I will have the opportunity to see good ‘ole Bill sitting front row looking all sorts of adorable and strikingly avuncular. He is the patriarch of New York fashion, a legend and the Mr. Rogers of style. While I was trotting across the street to the DVF show, I had a moment that I truly believed would never happen: Bill Cunningham snapped a photo of me. Sure I may never see this photo, but the memory will be forever engrained in my brain as my smirk met his lens and I had a true moment of wow!It might sound silly, but it was the highlight of my week.

  4. I stood next to Bill Cunningham for nearly an hour on Tuesday morning…he photographed people coming in to Badgley Mischka, in to Vera Wang and came back out to photograph after Vera Wang. He’s in the background of several of my shots & I had to tweet about it (of course!). I couldn’t get up the courage to introduce myself, though! So wonderful that he took your pic :)
