Fern Mallis tried for two years to get New York Times photographer Bill Cunningham to agree to a Q/A with her at 92Y in New York City. Cunningham politely declined in a handwritten letter only to end up changing his mind over a glass of white wine. “Poor Bill was horrified and so apoplectic in his apology,” Mallis said of the photographer spilling a glass of wine on her saffron chiffon caftanlike frock she wore to the CFDA Awards. “I told him, ‘It’s OK. It’s clear. It will dry. If it had been red wine, I would have killed you.’” The two will have their sitdown on September 3. [Women’s Wear Daily]

Like, ‘That’s not my statement!” The article is full of statements that are gems reminiscent of Ye were knew and loved (pre-Kardashian). [GQ]
