Candice Swanepoel experienced every model’s worst nightmare during her walk of Givenchy’s SS16 Collection.
The Victoria’s Secret model couldn’t quite keep her balance as she strutted down the runway in some sizeable black slingback heels. And we really felt for her.

As any professional would, the 26-year-old picked herself back up again – with the help of three very kind FROW members – and swiftly composed herself before carrying on with the show.
Keeping her smile firmly in place before putting her supermodel game face back on, the Victoria’s Secret Angel continued to showcase Givenchy’s stunning black lace frock for the fashion crowds.
You go, girl.
Afterwards Candice took to Instagram to show the extent of her injuries, snapping two nasty looking grazes on each knee. Ouch.
She said, “Thank you to who ever picked me up off the runway tonight. left with little scratches but mostly a bruised ego #ohwell”
You’re not alone, Candice.
It seemed that Givenchy’s elaborate runway set-up, combined with those killer heels, proved a little tricky for all of the catwalk stars to manoeuvre, as another model was spotted falling down one of the mini staircases.
And don’t forget, supermodel megastar Naomi Campbell famously fell to the floor during Vivienne Westwood’s catwalk show in Paris back in 1993, so Candice is in very good company.
Every woman can appreciate that walking in heels can be an art. And with so many people, including the likes of Kim Kardashian and Anna Wintour, watching you, it’s got to be particularly tough.
You handled it like a boss, CS.
