Candice Swanepoel showed us that the life of a runway model can be dangerous!
The 26-year-old South African was walking in Riccardo Tisci's first stateside runway show as the creative director of Givenchy on Friday when she took a nasty trip in a pair of fringed booties. 
With some help from members of the audience, Swanepoel maintained her composure and bounced back with a smile on her face to finish the show.
But she wasn't even the only model who fell! One of her runway co-stars, Pooja Mor, also took a tumble.
After the show, Swanepoel took to Instagram to let everyone know that she was alright, even playfully showing off her scraped knees. "Thank you to whoever picked me up off the runway tonight," the former Victoria's Secret model wrote. "Left with little scratches but mostly a bruised ego #ohwell"
Despite her stumble, it sounds like the model is ready to dust herself off and walk another fierce runway show -- and we wouldn’t expect anything less from Maxim's hottest woman. Watch the video below to learn more about her.
