Bill Cunningham. 79. And still talking about fringe boots.

Amongst those I would not trust to provide me with accurate fashion news, would be Mr. Rogers, Dick Cheney and this man:

But apparently Bill Cunningham, the 79 year-old New York Times Photographer, is still at it and still spotting style trends on the streets of New York.

Like this week's engaging (albeit slooooow) video segment on boots. Those 2 minutes and 57 seconds may seem like an hour as you listen to Bill talk about fringed and 'ivory,' or 'eggshell' colored Chanel boots as if he's got all the time in the world. But he certainly does know more than many of NY and LA's new 'fashion' editors. So props to Bill. Still out there. On the street.
