Supermodel stumbles

If you thought life as a catwalk model was easy, these photos might make you reconsider...

Whilst putting one foot in front of the other may not seem particularly challenging, skyscraper heels coupled with a shiny walkway and the pressure of knowing that all eyes are on you mean that putting one foot wrong can have disasterous results - namely ending up face down on the runway as other models step over you.

With three models already down at New York Fashion Week, take a look at some more dramatic catwalk falls in the gallery below.
