We know it's mean. But there is just something quite entertaining about watching statuesque, perfect women fall over in silly shoes. At Grazia Daily we recently unearthed a hilarious video of the ultimate runway fails (including a girl being knocked off the runway by a giant pendulum. Yeah. I know.) which got us thinking about the top model falls of all time.
It's kind of inevitable that sooner or later one of these girls is going to trip up - I mean, could YOU walk in a pair of Alexander McQueen Armadillo Heels? Thought not. But yet, when a model does (quite literally) make a slip up, it causes a wave of internet uproar - thank the lord for YouTube - and provides an endless source of entertainment. We’ve watched the below video at least five times today, which is definitely a little bit sad on our part. But it’s just SO FUNNY.
We’ve put together a gallery of some of our uh, favourite (is it mean to have a favourite?) model oopsies. Included in there is Naomi Campbell’s infamous topple on Vivienne Westwood’s 1993 Anglomania runway in a pair of Super Elevated Gillie Shoes (which she now reportedly uses as a doorstop. Personally, I don’t think I’d ever want to see them again).
There’s also Agyness Deyn’s tumble at the Fashion For Relief show in 2010, A model falling in the official Most Uncomfortable Shoes of All Time, and Alexandra Tomlinson taking a trip at the Chanel Couture show in 2009. I wonder what Karl said?
