Swanepoel slipped and fell down on the runway at the Givenchy show at New York Fashion Week. It turned out that the model’s pointed high heels were the reason why she lost her footing. The viewers were quick to help the model stand up after her fall. She did not mind the embarrassing accident and managed to walk away with composure.
