My ankles hurt just watching that.
God I can't even walk normally without falling over. Perhaps we should fly the models out on harnesses?
Oh Gd, I do so feel for them, what with having a job where the skill requirement is so, so steep as having to walk across the floor. How do they do it? Doesn't anyone know these poor girls live on cocaine and Ex-lax? It is cruel to expect them to do more than stare vacantly into space.Someone really needs to start a petition to ask the Nobel Prize committee to open a new category for models. Their level of service to humanity needs to be recognized with some kind of major award (or at least a sandwich).--Gotham Tomato
That Vikor and Rolf show must have been frigtening to watch. What a bunch of morons, who's going to want a dress with a pole and studio lights attached to it? I'm sure Tim Gunn would be rolling his eyes right now.
Hey, boys I'm a little disappointed. No mention of this yet:http://www.style.com/shopping/guide/fall07/index.htmlI found this Sunday. A GORGEOUS new Kara Janx dress mentioned on style.com! I was sure you would have known about this before me, why no post?
I love how in that one fall the still photographer is standing there waiting until the model slips and then pops that camera up to his eye. Nice.And some of those shoes are just horrors waiting to happen. And when it does, it's the clothes and shoes that look silly, even more than the girls.
Oh you made my day, bitches!
Hey! The model who fell at the 1:25-ish mark is Michelle from season 4 of ANTM.Good to see she's getting work.Sad to see she still needs some work.
OHMYGOD That is hilarious! I feel bad for them, but that is so funny. LOL.
LOL. LOVE IT. Is that bad?
Hahahaha. Some of these shoes are ridiculous! How are they supposed to walk in them?
R.O.F.L. I would die!
Hilarious! The funniest part is the opening narration about how difficult walking as a model is: "And these girls often have to do it FIVE OR SIX TIMES A DAY!"
Fashion designers need to cut waaay down on the backstage booze....and why hasn't anyone on a planet with gravity learned that pointy little shoes and shiny waxed floors were never, ever meant to meet? Traction? anyone?
And the thing is, most of those shoes are absolutely hideous. They don't add anything to the ensemble, other than the very real need for hazard pay.
What's really insane is that this season there were a lot of super high heels in the stores. Wedges and stilettos. Even wedges that high are hazardous. It's ridiculous. And on top of that, they look stupid and out of proportion.
Holy shit that was funny. I actually laughed out loud. Thank you for the laugh!!
New shoes can be really slippery, and new heels can be treacherous. And those runways look really really slippery. Plus, I've heard (and it makes sense) that the shoes aren't always the right size for the model, so they're trying to walk in shoes that are too big or too small. So I do kinda feel bad for them, it's a bad situation all around.Anon 1:33 said it best - it's the clothes that look dumb. When the models fall, they mostly just look kinda cute, especially when they grin afterwards. But the clothes, that only had the super-attitude going for them in the first place, just end up looking really silly.
LOL. With some of the shoes and outfits they put them in, I don't see how they could not fall. You boys are too fabulous for words. I love reading your blog!
This narrator waxing incredulous about walking the runway 5 or 6 times a day? Slap yourself! These girls aren't doing neurosurgery in stilettos without eating--they are WALKING. I will walk in stilettos all day long without complaining for the pay some models receive. Mercy!
Is that Jessica Stam in the gray who fell face flat?!
"Anonymous said... Is that Jessica Stam in the gray who fell face flat?!"Yup. She's amazing, even when she's falling
That was so mean of you!!! Loved it!!!
i am skinny, i eat, and i don't fall down. you think this shit is easy? you have call times of 6am and have shows back to back all day - with not much time to eat - and are expected to look flawless and skinny and perfect. oh, and then go to the afterparty(ies) until 1 or 2, then wake up and do it all again. don't hate.
