This just in: Proving that fashion week is not for the faint of heart, Bill Cunningham apparently just got hit by an SUV outside of Reed Krakoff! But don’t worry, he walked away without a scratch. Still, we gasped in horror upon reading the following tweet: “@WmagJane: Bill Cunningham hit by SUV. He’s ok @misternewton An SUV hit Bill Cunningham outside Reed Krakoff – he’s ok. He’s walking- still shooting!”
Phew! And, of course he’s still shooting. The man, who is in his early ’80s and, still bikes all over Manhattan every day, is obviously superhuman. After the initial shock of seeing the adorable (and genius) Times photographer get hit by a car, fellow street style photog Mr. Newton provided the following update: “The Bill Cunningham incident was not serious thankfully. He seemed a little embarrassed by the attention it caused more than anything!” Aww. One Tweeter went so far as to call him “Invinci-bill.”
All puns aside, we love you Bill Cunningham and we’re glad you’re okay!
