Bill Cunningham New York (2010) Bill Cunningham is known for both his high fashion and street fashion photography, and Bill Cunningham New York attempts to deconstruct the man behind the camera. Employed by the New York Times since 1978, the film explores the simple but fascinating life of a genius fashion photographer and notorious loner. As Cunningham explains both verbally and through his images, he's not interested in celebrities; he's interested in their clothes.

The September Issue (2009) Though The September Issue is, on the surface, a look at the annual release of the fashion world's bible -- that month's issue of American Vogue -- it also delves into the perplexing figure at the helm of it all: Anna Wintour. The documentary speaks with and closely follows Wintour, as well as her right-hand woman, Vogue's creative director, Grace Coddington. Set inside the hustle and bustle of the magazine's office and along the runways of the world, this documentary peels back the layers of the often secretive world of fashion and its direct relationship to publishing.
