It’s a model’s worst nightmare: Tripping and falling on the runway. But, unfortunately, even the best of the best have fallen victim to sky high heels and eclectic outfits. Check out the best trips, falls and face plants on the runway right here!
Bella Hadid, 19, has only been modeling for a few years, and she had her very first disaster during the Michael Kors show at New York Fashion Week on Sept. 14. The gorgeous 19-year-old twisted her ankle and fell to the ground while walking in front of a full crowd of photographers, designers and more! Of course, she’s an expert, so she got right back up and continued the show, although she later revealed she’d injured her ankle pretty badly. Not to worry, though: Bella was back on the runway just one day later, showing off her nipples in a sheer ensemble at the Marc Jacobs show. Killin’ it!
Someone who also knows all about this drastic situation is Candice Swanepeol, 27, who had a similar fall while walking for Givenchy one year earlier. The fringed shoes she was wearing were purposely unlaced, making it incredibly hard to walk without tripping, and she went DOWN right in the middle of the runway, landing on her hands, knees and stomach. Ouch!
Even one of the OG supermodels, Naomi Campbell, 46, has had a fall: She went down at the Vivienne Westwood show way back in 1993, and clearly, it hasn’t impacted her career in anyway. She’s still slaying to this very day! And while gals like Gigi Hadid, 21, and Kendall Jenner, 20, have never totally fallen over, they’ve definitely tripped and stumbled.
