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.
Here’s a cool snap that the eipc Lee Oliveira happened to capture just as Bill was simultaneously taking my photo.September 12th 2013
