It’s not safe out there on the catwalk.
You try wearing eight-inch stilettos, a body bag-size fur stole, and an outfit too geometric for the human body and not falling down.
At Naomi Campbell’s Fashion for Relief fundraiser in Cannes this week, three models took a spill onstage, one even slipping two more times before she could escape off-camera.
Any woman who has fallen in a pair of heels can sympathize with the looks on the models’ faces as they tumble. Watch the video:
Naomi’s models aren’t the first to trip onstage. Spills have gotten worse as the average heel height has grown — today the average is six inches, more than double what it was the 1970s. Of course it doesn’t help if the stage is made out of paper, in which case models can actually fall through the stage:
