We here at The Frisky have enjoyed our share of models falling. It’s just so good to know that, well, models: they’re just like us! They fall down. Some flail, some flop, and some crash and burn. Girls do it, and guys do it. When you hit the runway in sky-high heels, anything is possible. If you, too, enjoy the sight of models taking a spill, Uncoached has taken the time to gather together some of the best. From Naomi Campell’s legendary booty-plant to a few photos that remind why it’s a good thing to wear panties on the runway, here’s to hoping 2010 results in only the most graceful fashion tumbles.

Exciting news, guys. Fashion Weeks are upon us — it’s men’s fashion week right now, so NYC women’s ready-to-wear is right around the corner — and you know what that means. Two words, my friends: Models. Falling. Even though I’ve personally argued against laughing, there’s just no denying that there’s nothing more fascinating (not to mention schadenfreude-inducing) than seeing any one of the great beauties of the world fail at, well, what is basically glorified walking. Never has that been more apparent to me until this dude went down at Vivienne Westwood. That’s all I got to say here. [Stylelist] Keep reading »
Falling models! They’re just like us! Now, the phenomenon has reached new heights with the latest fashion wackiness from Steven Klein as Karlie Kloss takes a spill in perpetuity on the January 2010 cover of Vogue Italy. [Fashion Gone Rogue] Keep reading »
Even professional runway walkers have off-days. Yes, sometimes models wobble, and sometimes they fall down. Inspired by the this season’s models who hit the skids on the catwalk — thanks to all those crazy high heels — we’ve created a new dance: The Falling Model. There are three basic moves. Pick which one works for you, then try it out on the dance floor. You’ll impress all your fashionista friends!
The Oh-Hell-No: Pinwheel both arms, sending the right arm up and the left arm down as you dip towards the ground. Freeze. Smile like you know what you’re doing. Push out your chest as if you’re on the verge of a nip-slip. On tiptoe, spread your legs slightly, but do not flash your panties. Stand up. Do it again. Keep reading »
Vivienne Westwood isn’t the only designer who is looking to Pamela Anderson as a muse. Heatherette designer and legendary NYC club kid Richie Rich, seen here in skates (you’ve heard of models falling, now designers are wiping out, too), teamed up with Pam to create an eco-line called A.Muse. The two decided to debut it during New Zealand Fashion Week, and Pam really went out of her way to show the entire collection, including her ass cheeks, after the jump! Keep reading »
