Tumbles from Grace
Victoria Secret model, Candice Swanepoel, not only has bruised knees, but also a bruised ego, after taking a tumble on a catwalk at New York Fashion Week.
Swanepoel went down hard as she walked down the Givenchy runway on Friday, leaving her with cuts and bruises to her legs.
The stunning model didn’t let the fall faze her, however, and she picked herself up and finished the show like a true professional.
Swanepoel’s fall reminded us of another famous tumble by supermodel Naomi Cambell. During Vivienne Westwood’s Autumn/Winter ’93 show, Campbell took a huge spill wearing 9-inch platform heels.
Model spills aren’t isolated incidents, however. Model Agyness Deyn, best friend of Henry Holland hit the ground hard when she took a tumble during the Fashion For Relief in support of Haiti show in the year 2010.
Just goes to show you even angels can fall!
