falls on the run way at prada, a wee case of schadenfreude make

another fashion week, another fall (or few..) on the runway.
this time it was the models at Prada who made us sigh "eesh kabeesh" as they teetered and stumbled down the runway in skyhigh snakeskin heels.

I should imagine that Stam is regularly haunted by flashbacks of that astoundinly awful (yet none the less schadenfredue enducing..) fall at Chloe back in 2006. I know I have reoccuring nightmares that involve that headsmacking on the floor. So look at the sheer determination on her face below at Prada's show. "Not again, not bloody well again.." are the thoughts racing around her head, me thinks.

I do geniunely feel sorry for these girls, talk about embarrasment.. but there is no doubt that it adds a little fun to the shows; the shoes are so ridiculous at times that it is indeed laughable..

I think it's pretty damn ridiculous that a woman designer is putting women in shoes they can't walk in. I always try on my jewelry to make sure it's comfortable and if it's not, I fix the design.

i'll tell you right now, i won't be running out to the store to purchase these sky-high heels!

Poor girls, really... Especially Stam, she's history now.

But it is, still, fun... I mean, even they aren't perfect! So it makes it equal between supermodels and mere mortals. Haha

Loveee

I understand them perfectly (well you know..:P), the shoes were awful.

I feel bad for them. Although, they do have a job that most girls and women would love to have, so I guess that it just one of the low points of modelling.

loving the commentary on the pictures! but mainly just loving this post cos 'schadenfreude' is possibly my favourite word ever and i use it at every possible opportunity.

Oh poor girl! You have to laugh at these things though, everyone loves a dorky model!

Models are more human than we might think sometimes ;).
Prada shoes are art pieces on it self and not always make for walking (like the boots ;)) so I can imagine that these models have a hard time to walk on them.

There is something wrong here, as high heels should make the woman feel sexy, glamurous and stylish and all that. And the only thing I can see here is these poor girls walking line a dumb! Designers should think about this!

miuccia can't be surprised, I mean, those were killer shoes!

I feel so sorry for those girls, especially Stam. Although I still think that her fall was the best thing about that Chloe show :))
