Color Me Grounded

Whenever I turn on the radio to Beyonce singing “Do the Naomi Campbell walk/ Naomi Campbell walk/ Walk across the room like Naomi Campbell…” I cannot help but laugh! Like a local Catholic school naming itself Borgia, I do not understand telling anyone to “walk across the room like Naomi Campbell”, the supermodel famous for falling on the  Vivienne Westwood runway in Paris during the early 90s.

Model falls are somewhat common of an occurrence these days. We all watched Jessica Stam smack her forehead at Chloe last season and cheered for Iekeliene as she took off her shoes at Marc Jacobs. New York Fashion even has an article detailing their five favorite falls here.

I think that a common misconception is that if a model takes a little trip she must not be the brightest crayon in the box. Wrong! Interestingly enough, there are a plethora of factors that contribute to fashion wipe-outs….

…including flipping ninjas who mistakenly chop holes in the runways with their swords.

The next time you happen to be walking a show, remember to watch out for falling ninjas and most importantly, if you fall flat on your face, get up with a smile and keep on walking!
