Model Candice Swanepoel Takes a Tumble on the Runway: 'Left with a Couple of Scratches but Mostly a Bruised Ego'
She was in good company: Pooja Mor fell later in the same show, while coming down a small flight of steps on the runway
Even models make mistakes.
Victoria’s Secret beauty Candice Swanepoel was walking in the Friday Givenchy show during New York Fashion Week when she took a tumble right on the runway, apparently tripped up by the undone laces of her shoes.
Onlookers quickly jumped to help her up, but Swanepoel, 26, didn’t let the slip stop her: With a wave of her hand, she stood back up and completed her walk.
She was in good company: fellow model Pooja Mor fell later in the same show, while coming down a small flight of steps on the runway.
As Swanepoel stepped off the runway, she made a little tumbling motion with her hand, and she quickly made light of the accident on Instagram.
“Thank you to who ever picked me up off the runway tonight,” she wrote. “Left with little scratches but mostly a bruised ego.”
Swanepoel, a South Africa native, recently got engaged to her longtime boyfriend (and fellow model), Hermann Nicoli.
