SCAD Style: A visit to the Valley of the Dolls and the adorable Bill Cunningham

Image SCAD Style, a weeklong series of fashion and style events, wraps up the week with three free events today and tomorrow.

Tonight is a lecture by Waris Ahluwahlia, actor (he was in The Darjeeling Limited, The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou and Inside Man) and designer. He designs the House of Waris jewelry line and is influenced by ancient kingdoms.
The lecture is at 6 p.m. in Event Space 4C at SCAD Atlanta, 1600 Peachtree St.

Tomorrow is an event celebrating the 45th anniversary of the Valley of the Dolls book. Town & Country senior editor Whitney Robinson and fashion designer Lisa Perry will talk about the book and its impact, alongside Lisa Bishop, Cameron Silver and Ira Silberberg. There will also be a screening of a documentary about the making of the book and film. This event is at 3 p.m. in Event Space 4C at SCAD Atlanta, 1600 Peachtree St.

Also tomorrow is a screening and discussion of Bill Cunningham New York. Bill Cunningham New York is a documentary about Cunningham, a photographer for the Styles section of the New York Times. Even in his eighties, Cunningham is shown riding his bike around the city to capture its essence on film. Nice! The screening is at 6 p.m. in Event Space 4C at SCAD Atlanta, 1600 Peachtree St. www.scad.edu for all events.

The guy is a hoot. If you've never watched his style videos on nytimes.com, you're missing out. Check out this one from March when temperatures in Manhattan spiked. He can barely contain himself between all the flowers and cropped trenches.

Trailer for the documentary below:
