Angelenos! Don’t Miss the Free Screening of “Bill Cunningham New York” at the Getty Museum

Angeleno photographers, fashion elitists and designers of all sorts … don’t miss this film that will inspire your inner artist.

On November 30, the Getty Museum is hosting a free screening of Bill Cunningham New York about the 80-something New York Times street fashion photographer.

Iconic Vogue editor, Anna Wintour, has proclaimed, “we all get dressed for Bill” about the man who has captured candid shots of New York’s fashion elite and eccentrics for decades.

Designer Oscar de la Renta has said, “More than anyone else in the city, he has the whole visual history of the last 40 or 50 years of New York. It’s the total scope of fashion in the life of New York.”

The film includes interviews with Wintour, Tom Wolfe, Brooke Astor, and David Rockefeller, and offers a “delicate, funny and often poignant portrait of a dedicated artist whose only wealth is his own humanity and unassuming grace.”
