they all fall down

The Hervé Léger Fall/Winter 2009/10 runway proved hazardous during their show yesterday, as more than one model stumbled or fell. Among the unlucky ones were the highly buzzed about Polish 15-year-old Monika “Jac” Jagaciak and 17-year-old German Karolin Wolter, both of whom are pretty green on the runway.

Even Alexander Wang offered the reward of tequila shots to models (mostly underage, mind you) that didn’t fall at his show. With falls becoming more common, you can’t help but feel a little sympathy for models who have to contend with super-slippery runway surfaces and increasingly sky-high, ankle-breaking heels.

To commemorate what’s likely to be the first of many runway tumbles this season, check out Fashion Television’s compilation of memorable model falls (including the epic face plant by Jessica Stam at Chloé Fall/Winter 2006/07 at 0:39 and again at 1:59).
