Se stjärnorna hylla den avlidne modefotografen Bill Cunningham




I lördags gick modefotografen Bill Cunningham bort i en stroke, 87 år gammal. Nu hyllar stjärnorna honom på sociala medier.

Modevärldens mest kända fotograf Bill Cunningham skapade street style och gjorde den till konst. Och under sin karriär har han fångat upp trender från New Yorks gator i fyra decennier. Hängiven och djupt passionerad för sitt jobb blev han med sin mundering – en cykel och blå täckjacka – ett levande landmärke på gatorna.

Bill Cunninghams arbete uppmärksammades i dokumentären Bill Cunningham New York 2010 där Vogues chefredaktör Anna Wintour beskrev honom som ovärderlig i modevärlden. Alla ville bli fotograferade av honom. ”We all dress for Bill” sa hon då. Han beskrivs också som en genomsnäll och ödmjuk man, som alltid fick kända som okända att känna sig speciella. Nu hyllar kändisar som Gigi Hadid och Sarah Jessica Parker honom på sociala medier. Spana in nedanför.

”The best Fashion Show is definitely on the street. Always has been, and always will be”.

I was so sad yesterday to hear of the passing of the legendary, Bill Cunningham. Here's a little story… I watched a documentary about this iconic NY street style photographer, called "Bill Cunningham New York" last year (a must see if you're into fashion, btw). I was so taken by this sweet man & his commitment to his art… you can't help but fall in love with him. All I could think after watching was, I want to be photographed by Bill! How cool would that be?! A few months later I was in NYC for fashion week. I stepped out of my car at the DVF show & photographers started snapping shots. I was so distracted by what was happening in front of me, that I didn't realize there was a familiar face in a familiar blue jacket taking pictures to my left. My stylist Madison (who is equally obsessed with Bill) gets my attention amidst the chaos & points at sweet Bill. What happened next was completely unexpected. I saw him, freaked out & excitedly screamed "BILLLL!!!". I'm pretty sure I startled him & he shyly smiled & took some pictures of me. A wave of emotion came over me & I started to cry. I tried to hide my tears of joy as I posed for a few more shots, hoping that people wouldn't notice. I made my way over to Bill & told him how much I loved him & asked for a picture. He was so adorable & kind & gentle. #RIP #BillCunningham It was an honor to have met you & to have been photographed by you. I hope wherever you are, you still have that camera of yours. 💙💙💙📸
