In Memoriam: Bill Cunningham

"We all get dressed for Bill," Vogue editor Anna Wintour once said. 

This past Sunday, the fashion world lost a legend - Bill Cunningham. When Bibi told me the news, I was in shock and just so sad. In my head, the infamous New York Times fashion photographer would live forever.  After all, the daily cyclist, spent decades documenting fashion from New York City streets. However, we bid farewell this past weekend to a remarkable man. 

Over his lifetime, he had some incredible and inspiring quotes. I am sharing my favorites below.  Which one of these resonates with you the most?

1. The best fashion show is definitely on the street. Always has been, and always will be.

2. He who seeks beauty, shall find it.

3. Fashion is the armor to survive the reality of everyday life.

4. A lot of people have taste, but they're not daring enough to be creative.

5. I don't pay attention to celebrities. I don't photograph them. They don't dress so..interestingly. They have stylists. I prefer real women who have their own taste.

6. I don't work, I only know how to have fun every day.

7. Money is the cheapeast thing. Freedom is the most expensive thing.
