Victoria’s Secret Model Falls On The Runway But Recovers Like A Pro
Taking a bad spill
on the runway may be a model’s worst nightmare—this gets amplified when the gaffe is seen by millions around the world.
Chinese model Ming Xi
made headlines last week after news broke that she had inadvertently slipped and fallen on the catwalk after her heel got caught on her gown. Instead of editing the fall out of the telecast, CBS not only included the footage, but also spliced in audio commentary from the producers, saying, “Ming is down!” and “Can she get up? Is she okay?”
Cameras too followed
Xi backstage as she cried and was consoled by the other Victoria’s Secret models.
Nevertheless, the model
handled her fall and the ensuing media frenzy with poise and grace. She posted a photo from the show to her Instagram with a caption that read, “As many of you may already know, I fell during my 5th year walking at the Victoria’s Secret show yesterday. It was no doubt one of the hardest moments I have ever had to go through in my career, especially since the show was taking place in my hometown, in front of my mother’s and my people’s eyes.
“However, the support
I received from everyone yesterday was incredible and I am truly grateful to everyone who was there for me.” She concluded, “I will pick myself up from where I fell, and I will keep going in order to repay all the support you all have given me!!”
