Watch the Prada show – and the models tumble

25 September 2008


Is it wrong  that 24 hours have gone by and we're still slightly obsessed by Katie Fogarty and Yulia Kharlaponova's  tumbles during the Prada show. Perhaps it's just because seeing the model's go down makes us realise they're they are only human and struggle to walk in high heels sometimes too. Check out the tumble about two and a half minutes into this clip. Backstage before the show, models were shaking as they all knew it was inevitable that at least one of them wouldn't make it through without a fall.  ' I was having a panic attack, my hands were shaking. The heels were so high, ' one of the models said  of the snakeskin wooden platform heels . 'Some of the girls were crying backstage they were so scared. ' Yikes. So what happened? Muccia Prada 's blaming the bow tied socks not the shoes for the model's slipping. And as for us wearing them come Spring? Muiccia's confirmed the heels will  now  be lowered for when they go into stores next year.  Hurrah!
