It could have been a scene from Sex in the City, a leggy gorgeous model wipes out and falls flat on her face at Proenza Schouler during the first few days of Fashion Week.
The Devil Wears Prada inspirational muse Anna Wintour was spotted with daughter Bee Shaffer, then the UK’s most famous WAG; Victoria “Posh Spice” Beckham sashayed to a front-row seat in a tangerine dream. Insiders at the New York show, the delightful “Fug Girls” commented “she’s so orange you could squeeze her and make a mimosa.” Also spotted were Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher.
The actual parade of models trumped the jockeying socialites and celebrities all vying for key paparazzi spots to be seen seeing the latest designer schmattes.
One model actually came down the runway in the wrong direction, but another beat her to the pinnacle of poseur mortification by actually tripping and face planting square on the model runway.
The crowd audibly gasped with horror, some jumped out of their seats to lend a hand to the fumbled filly on the ground.
