Models So Hungry, They Eat Runway

I KNOW these runway trip-ups and falls have been featured everywhere from YouTube to Access Hollywood and on millions of fashion blogs everywhere, but since fashion week is approaching and nymag did a feature on them, I couldn't help myself to do a recap on it. It's like when someone trips, it is instinctual to giggle, or maybe I'm just a cruel and heartless bitch and have had many embarassing tripping incidents in my own life that I feel entitled to laugh at another's humiliation. Especially if it's a model, because they need a little embarassment in their lives to offset their skinny, beautiful, yummy cocaine-filled lives.

Jessica Stam, ChloƩ, Fall 2006: One of the worst kinds of falls: when forehead hits floor.


Milana Bogolepova, Dior, Resort 2008: So, according to nymag, she tripped, came back up, and tripped again. Tipsy much?

Elise Crombez, Proenza Schouler, Spring 2007: It doesn't really matters that Elise fell; I was just so transfixed by her perfect tan.

Kamila W. at Vivienne Westwood, Spring 2007: Okay, now this fall, was excruciating. I actually caught this on ACCESS HOLLYWOOD, of all places; that was how treacherous and widespread it was. It was bad enough she fell the first time, but I thought, well, at least she picked herself back up. And then the teetering began. Then the tottering...then finally her arse hit pavement...all whilst holding on to that damned watering can.

Iekeliene Stange: Marc Jacobs, Spring 2007: She became every self-proclaimed teenage fashionista's idol when she kicked off her hazardous MJ clompers and paraded the runway barefoot.

Lara Stone: Karl Lagerfeld, Spring 2007: Slip and slide runway. Does anyone even remember this? Shes so major these days, no one can recall.
Tiiu Kuik, Oscar De La Renta, Fall 2004: Now that came out of nowhere.


Naomi Campbell, Vivienne Westwood, 1993: The most infamous wipeout ever. Vengefully replayed over and over again on fat-arse Tyra's talk show and "modelling" competition.

Not cute! Models need to digest this DVD so they can stop the wobble-eat the runway: http://www.legworkdvd.com/

haha great post!

I actually feel so sorry for them. If I were a model I'd rather die than fall. I mean how ashamed can you feel?

What is it with Vivienne Westwood catwalks? But poor, poor Kamila W. Painful to watch!
I think I would have just slid off the runway into a heap of embarrasment.

Great post though, I never tire of falling models, though there haven't really been enought this season! Which is ironic seeing as it's fall.
See. What. I. Did. There...

Thanks for your lovely comment by the way, I've been so busy recently (new college, same story, blahhh) I feel like I've neglected your blog a little!
