my new favorite man: bill cunningham

i just saw his documentary, and he is truly the most humble, optimistic, good-hearted, quickest to laugh, truly good man. 

at 86, he has never had a romantic relationship, which is such a shame to all those who have missed out on such a man. 

he wears the same thing everyday, which are the shirts street cleaners in paris wear.

some gems of wisdom:

"if you don't take money, they can't tell you what to do, kid."

"money is the cheapest thing...freedom is the most expensive."

"fashion is the armor to survive everyday life."

"it's as true as it ever was...he who seeks beauty will find it." 

if you don't get to see the documentary, definitely check out his pictures of the former UN diplomat from Nepal...he is a sneak peek! (he's the whole bottom favorite are the matching rainboots.)
