Model Candice Swanepoel left bloodied after runway fall

South African supermodel Candice Swanepoel has been left with cuts to her knees after tripping up on the runway during the Givenchy show at New York Fashion Week.

The Victoria's Secret stunner shocked the star-studded crowd at Friday night's (11Sep15) presentation when she took a spill on the catwalk, prompting security guards to rush to her side and help her to her feet.


Swanepoel, who had been wearing a sheer lace dress with red and black booties, subsequently managed to brush off the embarrassing incident by cracking a smile as she completed her walk after the mishap.


She later took to Instagram.com to show off her bloodied knees, and captioned it, "Thank you to who ever picked me up off the runway tonight. Left with little scratches but mostly a bruised ego #ohwell (sic)".


Swanepoel isn't the first big name to take a tumble on the fashion runway - British beauty Naomi Campbell famously stumbled to the ground in towering Vivienne Westwood platform heels during Paris Fashion Week back in 1993.
