Rose McGowan has been forced to put her best foot forward at Fashion Week — literally. Thanks to what she thinks is a broken toe, the Conan the Barbarian star is moving a little slowly this week.

What’s to blame for her untimely injury? “Heels,” she told PEOPLE Monday before Chris Benz’s runway show. “I collapsed … three days, about 14 to 15 hours of heels per day. I believe I now have a hairline fracture in my baby toe.”

McGowan wasn’t going to let the inconvenience stop her Fashion Week fun, though. “All I did was bind my toes together with extra Band-Aids and a quarter of a popsicle stick,” she shared.

So had she considered swapping her stilettos for flats, or — gasp — even running shoes?

“Yeah … that’s not going to happen,” she replied.
