Epic fail: Fashion models falling!

31 July 2014, 20:30Gadeeja Abbas

Abuja - Okay, I will admit that I am no poster child for standing up straight. Hell, I can’t even be the spokesperson for walking straight on a flat surface. So, I would be the first to understand that when gravity hates you, it really hates you, and these poor girls must have the bruises to prove it.

Don’t get us wrong, We are in no way laughing at the perils of these gorgeous girls (okay, maybe a little. On the inside). Being tall, super slim and a runway queen must be a very dangerous job with all the slipping, tripping and tumbling that takes place ALL. THE. TIME.

Come on, you must confess that there is something very hilarious about someone falling - even if it’s your friend, your enemy or even yourself falling down flat on your butt - you can’t suppress the giggles!

So sit back, strap your feet to the ground and watch these fashion faces do it without any finesse.

Ouch! Not once, not twice but thrice. At least she gets credit for taking her tumble in her stride though.

Is this the new version of the Gangnam


Maybe she thought a dip in the pool would be oh-so refreshing?

I really cant watch this one. She actually falls through the floor of her own runway.

Oh, I have done this slip and slide routine. It's great for when you want that ashy-knees look that's so fashionable these days.

Oh! Face-plant!

Oh I get it. This model is doing a rendition of swan lake on skates. Clever girl!

Add some music and you have a sexy break-dance. Work it girl! Holla!

Ag same. She reminds me of a baby calf walking for the first time.

And we all fall down!

What a graceful way to fall. Perhaps it would be in our benefit to learn this technique.


Is it me or does this creature dance look a bit creepy? All this model needs to do is crawl out of a TV screen with hair covering her face.
