Atishoo, Atishoo, We All Fall Down!

A little lighthearted post to add a bit of humour on a bland tuesday! (EDIT: At least that was when I wrote this...) I though I'd think about the comedy values of fashion, and Jessica Stam falling flat on her face pretty much springs to mind!

What I admire though, about these Catwalk mishaps, are that the models got up with grace and a big smile and carried on, when it probably would have been easier to lay in the middle of the catwalk and have a good old cry into their Proenza Shouler and Chloe.

And anyway it adds a bit of fun and takes away the pretense. I think someone should actually instruct their models to accidentally on purpose take a tumbl on the way down the catwalk for a bit of drama. Mr McQueens the man!...


Whoops A Daisy!

Kamila M takes a fall at Vivienne Westwood.

I feel so sorry for this girl! She got up again with grace only to have another slippery fall right at the end. And it took about five seconds for her to actually reach the ground. Try not to be tempted to search for it on YouTube...

"I was just adjusting my shoe!" Duhh.

Faux Pas: Elise

Poor, poor Elise! But look how she improvises and walks back swinging her heels from her hands. And bless the front row woman who helps her up. They're not all backstabbers!

Good Trip, Lara Stone?

Falling over on a catwalk in front of the fashion world's snootiest queens? Or falling over on the catwalk of the fashion world's snootiest queen-Karl Lagerfeld. I think we know which is worse!

Offf! Makes the palms of my hands feel slightly painful watching this, but also makes me want to laugh.

Have a great rest of the week!

The fall from Kamila had me laughing for days! It was so funny, but I don't want to stand in her shoes. That counts for the fall from Jessica too!

Ofcourse I want to swap links, I put you on my link-list today :). And I have a question, what is the name of the first song that is playing on your blog?

whatabout the naomi tumble? sure, it might have been what, 10 or so years ago? but it was a classic fall nonetheless.

i don't think i'll ever get tired of the video where stam falls. it's just too.... funny. i'm horrible, and i'm really tempted to go search kamilla on youtube since you added that she fell twice.

Haha I love this post! I feel so sorry for Jessica, but I can't stop myself from laughing when I see that clip! I didn't know that there were so many models falling on the runway this year!

Q said...

LOL. I youtubed Kamila's fall(s) and her second one was monumental! Can you believe how many times she teetered on those heels before she actually fell down the second time??
