Candice Swanepoel took a less-than-graceful nosedive on the Givenchy runway at New York Fashion Week on Friday night. Fortunately for the Victoria's Secret supermodel, she emerged from the event with bruised knees and a bit of a bruised ego. It could have been much worse.

It was her sky high heels that tripped up Candice Swanepoel, causing her to fall while strutting her stuff for the luxury French designer.

Trying to keep things light, Swanepoel bowed to the audience, then finished her walk past stars including Nicki Minaj, Kim Kardashian, Kanye West, and Anna Wintour.

It was via Instragram that Candice Swanepoel shared her fall from grace with her social media followers.

“Thank you to whoever picked me up off the runway tonight. Left with little scratches but mostly a bruised ego," she captioned the photo.

Fortunately for Candice Swanepoel, she wasn't the only model who face-planted on the Givenchy runway. Model Pooja Mor fell on the wooden stairs.

Unfortunately for both Pooja Mor and Candice Swanepoel, this Givenchy show boasted a huge celebrity presence since the designer didn't have a catwalk during Paris Fashion Week.

Can you imagine how devastated both of these models must feel in light of their runway mishaps?
