Model Tumbles

Posted in Your Fashion Fix by Staff on September 10, 2008

Every year, model tumbles add an extra bit of humor to the air of Fashion Week. Realistically, some of the fashion-forward footwear designers strap onto unsuspecting models are high in style and just as high in impracticality. And, regardless of what you think of the profession overall, give a little credit to these teen-aged girls for sashaying onto the runway in such a way that looks effortlessly executed. Six-inch heels qualify as machinery as far as I’m concerned and walking in them definitely takes a lot of skill. I can barely survive in my average 3-inch pumps for an hour. First, I heard whispers that Arlenis Sosa had stumbled a bit at BCBG but hey, she’s a newbie and we’ve already seen past runway footage. She’s otherwise radically strong and appropriately fierce for a fresh face, stomping down the runway like she owns the place. Go girl! Today, we’re hearing about Abbey Lee, who apparently took a HUGE spill at Rodarte … tragic! We’re not bothering to check out the video because have better things to do but  feel free to Google away. As far as we’re concerned, these upsets do more good than bad. We’d never heard of Abbey Lee and we’re so glad that we’ve finally caught up with her. We can now identify a campaign or two where we’ve seen her before … Calvin Klein for instance. We’re definitely taking notice. She’s a doll! Check her out at NY Times ‘The Moment’ Blog in a feature about the many looks of models during Fashion Week! Don’t sweat the small stuff. Apparently she walked something like 14 presentations. Take that!
