We would like to extend our wishes for a very happy 85th birthday to Bill Cunningham, the New York Times photographer. Some notable names, like Mickey Boardman, shared thoughts on the iconic lensman: "Any time I've seen Bill over the last 25 years I've been giddy like a schoolgirl hoping that he'd shoot me—he's a legend! I'm sad to report that for years he never seemed interested in taking my picture." [Barneys/The Window]
