LOML: BILL CUNNINGHAM



[All images from tumblr]

Truth be told, I have had an obsession with Bill Cunningham for years.  Ever since I first saw his blue smock at an event in East Hampton, I have been fascinated by his casual presence at some of the world's most elegant parties.  As the industry's first street style photographer, Bill has now been capturing the fashion of New York City for over 60 years. The things he has seen, the people he has met, and the clothes he has photographed, are remarkable.  Anna Wintour, editor in chief at Vogue has been quoted saying, "We all get dressed for Bill."  Yeah, he's that important.  

So, when I first found out that Bill had a video blog on Bloglovin (thanks, Joani!) I was ecstatic! Here was a place where I could watch short little photo montages narrated by Bill himself.  Recent topics of conversation, you ask? The Great Gatsby, spring in NYC, shoes, hats, etc you name it.  Clocking in at around 3 minutes a piece, they are totally worth it--if only to hear his cute little voice.  So pop on over, a take a peak, and try to keep your closet envy under control. (Oh, and while you're at, it don't forget to sign up to follow Broho Style.)  

And if it's more Bill that you're looking for, go and rent the documentary Bill Cunningham New York.  It will change your life.
