“A true gentleman”: social media floods with tributes for iconic fashion photographer Bill Cunningham

The fashion world was mourning the loss of one of its greats this weekend, following the death of iconic photographer Bill Cunningham.

Hailed as the "father of street style", Cunningham was one of the first photographers to capture fashion as it happened on the street, rather than simply on celebrities. The self-taught 87-year-old took stunning images on the streets of New York and was a front row fixture at most fashion shows, loved by celebrities and designers alike.

Since his death on Saturday, social media has been bursting with tributes to the "true gentlemen", with everyone from Rihanna and Gigi Hadid to The New York Times, who he worked for, posting heartfelt messages and images.

See all the best here.
