Fab Fashion Doco

If you ever find yourself spending copious amounts of time looking at The Sartorialist, then Bill Cunningham New York is the documentary for you. Go way behind the scenes as photographer Bill Cunningham captures the beat of fashion on the streets, runways and at parties. Check out the trailer and watch his On The Street video he does for the New York Times
"'We all get dressed for Bill', says Vogue editor Anna Wintour. The Bill in question is 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 soirees for the Times's Style section in his columns "On the Street" and "Evening Hours".
Full of uptown fixtures (such as Wintour, Tom WolfeBrooke AstorDavid Rockefeller—who all appear in the film), downtown eccentrics and everyone in between, Cunningham’s enormous body of work documents its time and place as well as individual flair. Bill Cunningham New York portrays the man at work (on the street and at the office) and at home (a Carnegie Hall studio)." - Wikipedia
