How true is that quote? How powerful can an outfit, or a killer pair of shoes make you feel? How many times has a certain look helped me feel like I know when I'm talking when presenting something that I KNOW I'm out of my depth with.
If you haven't seen this documentary yet, do yourself a favour and find a way to watch it. I'd been meaning to see it for months, but something always got in the way. When I got wind of the fact that it was screening for one final week at Palace, I switched around my diary and unplugged and saw it one late Monday afternoon. Blackberry was off, iPhone was on flight mode and I sat in a cinema at 3pm on a weekday. Totally indulgent but I'm so glad that I did. The world didn't combust without me.
Bill is such a simple individual, who up until recently lived in one tiny room at Carnegie Hall, sleeping on a mattress that sat on crates. And his infamous blue jacket is a jacket that Paris street sweepers wear, which he wore to receive his French Legion of Honour award. This documentary will make you laugh and cry and humble you enormously.
