Model Candice Swanepoel Goes Splat On Runway At Givenchy NYFW Show

The Givenchy runway wasn't very angelic to this Victoria's Secret model.

Even professional models take a tumble every now and then – they just have to do it in front of a wall of cameras. A Victoria's Secret angel took a hard tumble during Friday night's Givenchy show – and it looks like it hurt.

Candice Swanepoel fell while walking in Givenchy's first-ever New York Fashion Week show on Friday. The 26-year-old South African model was walking the runway wearing a dark, lacy gown when she tripped over her heels, sending her careening to the ground. But the model, ever the professional, quickly recovered from the fall with the help of several security guards.

“Thank you to whoever picked me up off the runway tonight,” she wrote on Instagram after the show, sharing a photo of her injuries. “Left with little scratches but mostly a bruised ego.”

Swanepoel wasn’t the only model to wipe out during the Givenchy show: Model Pooja Mor also fell down while walking down a pair of wooden steps.
