For sure you know Scott Schuman or Tommy Ton or...some others street style heroes but do you know something about Bill Cunningham? If not, you should be ashamed (!) and run now to the cinema !

Finally, a full-length documentary about street style pioneer, 81 year old New York Times photographer, Harvard graduate,  hat salesman and such an amazing man in one- ladies and gentleman ....Bill Cunningham is about to be released, and here is its first official trailer!(just below).
Director Richard Press has been wanting to do this film since 2000, though he only got Cunningham to agree to start shooting during New York Fashion Week in 2008. Until then, the photographer had been very hesitant about shooting a documentary about him, claiming that “there’s no subject here.” :)
The trailer starts with Vogue US fashion editor Anna Wintour saying that “we all get dressed for Bill”, before explaining that having Bill noticing you without wanting to take a photo of you is a terrifying thing for a fashion editor like herself.
The film premieres at New York City’s Film Forum on March 16.( my birthday, could not be better).And The Oscar goes to...BILL- just kidding but Mr.Cunningham received from me a lifetime achievement award :)

The best quotes from this film:
"The point is that fashion is the arm to survive in everyday life"
 “we all get dressed for Bill”
"one snap, two snaps or he ignores you which is death"  -     ANNA WINTOUR
 "The fashion show is definetely on the street, always has been and always will "

Abbey Lee - Sasha - Lily - Edita for Rag & Bone SS11

Instead of hiring a professional photographer to shoot their ad campaign, Marcus Wainwright and David Neville handed Abbey Lee Kershaw, Edita Vilkeviciute, Sasha Pivovarova, and Lily Aldridge a digital camera and asked them to take pictures of themselves in Rag & Bone clothes.
“We have always been very inspired by the girls who do the show,” said Wainwright. “Rather than do what every other brand does and have a high-end photographer take very polished shots, we thought, ‘Let’s flip it on its head to get the girls to take over.’ We wanted it to be very real.” Frankly speaking people
want to see models more without retouching and from backstage. I'm in!

Zamiast zatrudniać do kampanii kolejnego wielkiego fotografa duet projektantów Rag & Bone (Marcus Wainwright i David Neville) postanowili w tej roli obsadzić same modelki, które miały za zadanie zrobić sobie prywatne, całkowicie amotorskie zdjęcia be retuszu. Jeden z twórców marki mówi o tym, że chcieli zrobić coś nowatorskiego, a zarazem prawdziwego - coś co sprawi, że ich kampania będzie jedyna w swoim rodzaju.
Pomysł odbił się szerokim echem...więc chyba się udało, ludzie chcą oglądać modelki bez retuszu i z backteagu. Jestem za!
