What made this model cry down the catwalk?

03 March 2009

Who said it was easy being a model? Not only do you have to negotiate five inch heels on a polished catwalk (did you know Balenciaga smear theirs with diet coke beforehand to make them sticky?) but their every move/facial expression/wiggle is analysed by the front rowers... Take poor Auguste Abeliunaite who walked down the Jil Sander catwalk in Milan this week with tears streaming down her face. Instead of focusing on the gorgeously minimalist collection with its clean lines and simple silhouettes, the fash pack were straight on to their Blackberrys to Twitter their theories: was she in distress at the orange wedges? Allergic to the hair and make-up? Apparently, Jil Sander's publicity team ‘didn't see the incident', so no clues from them and on with the fashion speculation. Hmm... maybe it's just another model injury – we heard in London one model arrived at a casting in floods of tears after hair extensions glued on for one show had been brutally ripped off straight afterwards. Nice. We'll stick to watching shows rather than walking in them then...
