Even the top models can take a wrong step. Too long suits, shoes that are too high, slippery floors and an elegant walk can quickly be transformed into a true cross. A fall on the catwalk is the biggest fear of the models. And the poor sometimes make it very complicated, especially those designers who make them parade with extravagant clothes that make their mobility difficult or with impossible heels.
Throughout the years we have been able to observe multiple falls on the catwalks. Absolutely embarrassing moments featuring many models, even the most veteran ones! And although it is true that it supposes a bad drink for them, the important thing in the end is to play down the issue. Because, who has not had some stumbling sometimes? And, above all: who has not laughed about it? Because yes, the human being is like this: to see how someone falls down always generates us laugh, even knowing that we should not laugh but worry first.
Contrary to popular opinion, being a catwalk model is not a piece of cake. And it becomes even more difficult when they are forced to wear shoes that are too high. Therefore, it is not surprising that models from time to time are stamped against the ground, but yes, without ever losing elegance and charm.
When a model falls on the catwalk, her work, her ego, and even her physical integrity are at stake. Many times, the fault lies with those responsible for setting the stage, or who should give the instructions, or a defective shoe; who is the culprit, only they suffer the shame that for their misfortune, will generally be portrayed in photos and videos for life.
In a modeling school they teach you how to look good, how to smile on the catwalk and out of it, poise, elegance, distinction, how to look good on clothes, how to walk with different types of shoes, in short, they teach you how to be a model; but they do not teach you how to survive these moments, so, beyond laughing at these images, we offer applause to those models, who rise up gracefully from situations like these.
Remember the chapter in Sex and the city where Carrie Bradshow stumbles and falls on the catwalk in front of hundreds of spectators? Thanks to that scene, we learned that the important thing is to get up and move forward.
Today I bring you a compilation of some of the most epic falls of the models on the catwalk. Clumsy falls that have taken place during the haute couture fashion shows, where fortunately none of them got hurt.
But remember, you have to have a lot of courage to fall and get up, much more if you’re walking on a catwalk with the eyes of the whole world on you. So even if it makes you laugh, do it with respect, because, dear models of the world: nothing happens if you fall!
