Victoria’s Secret model Candice Swanepoel is back with a smile after she slipped on the runway during a fashion show on Friday.

She was spotted with her friends at the Rose Bar at Gramercy Park Hotel, Saturday evening. Swanepoel was very elegant in her white dress as she and Brazilian model Lais Ribeiro posed for the cameras. She looked like she has fully recovered after the incident.

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.

The supermodel stood up and just smiled as if nothing happened. She was a perfect example of how professional models like her handle awkward situations. Her graceful exit earned her praises from the social media. Social media users were able to relate to her.

“Left with little scratches but mostly a bruised ego,” she wrote sharing a photo of her wounded knees on her Instagram account. She also expressed her gratitude toward the people who assisted her during the event.

Just minutes after she slipped, another model fell down the runway. The viewers helped the woman get back on her feet and like Swanepoel, she did not suffer any serious injuries.

The 26-year-old Victoria’s Secret model is one of the highest-paid models in the world. In fact, in a 2013 report released by Forbe’s magazine, Swanepoel took the number nine spot on the list, with $3.3 million. She was also hailed most beautiful woman in 2014 according to Maxim's Hot 100 list.
