Street Style photographer, Bill Cunningham.
ABOUT THE FILM
“We all get dressed for Bill,” says Vogue editrix Anna Wintour.
The “Bill” in question is 80+ New York Times photographer Bill Cunningham. For decades, this Schwinn-riding cultural anthropologist has been obsessively and inventively chronicling fashion trends and high society charity soirées for the Times Style section in his columns “On the Street” and “Evening Hours.” Documenting uptown fixtures (Wintour, Tom Wolfe, Brooke Astor, David Rockefeller—who all appear in the film out of their love for Bill), downtown eccentrics and everyone in between, Cunningham’s enormous body of work is more reliable than any catwalk as an expression of time, place and individual flair. In turn, Bill Cunningham New York is a delicate, funny and often poignant portrait of a dedicated artist whose only wealth is his own humanity and unassuming grace.
The boys behind Rag & Bone, Marcus Wainwright and David Neville, have created a guerilla advertising campaign which involves plastering thousands of posters all over lower Manhattan, in delis, constructions walls, and sign posts, in “Dan Smith Will Teach You Guitar” fashion. The ads consist of personal photographs of models Abbey Lee Kershaw, Edita Vilkeviciute, Sasha Pivovarova, and Lily Aldridge wearing Rag & Bone.

Target took over The Standard in New York to put on “The Target Kaleidoscopic Fashion Spectacular” on August 18th.
In a dazzling and dizzying display of music, lights, dance, fashion, and, above all, wealth,Target put on a 20 minute show perfectly suited to the ADD-generation. A meticulously choreographed dance routine synchronized to a light show played out across 155 rooms, set to an original score recorded with a 30-piece orchestra and 10-member chorus.
More impressive was the cost of it all. One source estimates the cost of the event at around a million, easy. So we roughly broke down the cost of last night’s Target fall fashion spectacular (minus the private party at the Standard’s biergarten):
- 155 Standard Queen rooms at $295 (their cheapest rates) = $45,725
- 66 professional dancers at around $2000 a dancer (this rough estimate from MSA Talent Agency who reps 20 of the dancers who performed in the show). Dancers rehearsed on a 20,000 square foot sound stage for nine days prior to the show. = $132,000
- 20 models at around $1000 each = $20,000
- Scaffolding structure that held the runway show: $35,000 plus $10,000 for lighting
- Shutting down Little West 12th Street plus security: $100,000
- Celebrity service for Mary-Louise Parker and Penn Badgley at $1000 each for car service, $50,000 each for a 45 minute appearance = $102,000
- 156 LED lights at around $20 each = $3120
- Programming, equipment and labor for lighting = $50,000
- Original score = $35,000
- An estimated four days of recording at $3000 per day with a 30 piece orchestra and 10 member choir = $12,000
- 30 musicians at around $1800 each = $54,000
- Bleachers for viewing = $15,000
- Red carpet (step and repeat plus lighting) = $10,000
TOTAL = over $620,000
