Social Media's Most Touching Tributes To Bill Cunningham

"RIP to the king of streetstyle."

The fashion world lost one of its most beloved photographers Saturday. With the news of Bill Cunningham's death at age 87, all corners of the internet poured forth a flood of tears, tributes and memories.

Many shared starstruck memories of spotting him for the first time, some expressed gratitude for the documentary that gave fans a peek into his otherwise elusive life, and others recounted some of the most famous quotes said by him and about him. ("We all get dressed for Bill," Anna Wintour famously said.)

As much as Cunningham is revered as a fashion fixture, he must also be remembered for his iconic status as a New Yorker. His talent and keen eye for true style are only paralleled by his presence on the NYC streets, oftentimes perched on his bicycle in that signature blue jacket, camera in hand.

Take a look at some of the tributes to the photographer who touched so many lives.
