fashion week tumble candice swanepoel falls on givenchy runway gossipNew York Fashion Week 2015 is officially in full swing and is filled with celebrities, models and of course, fashion.

Unfortunately, model Candice Swanepoel didn’t have the best start to the fashion festivities, as took a tumble while walking the Givenchy spring-summer 2016 show on Friday.

Candice was wearing a black, semi-sheer mid-length dress, as well as red and black-fringed heels. However, her strut down the runway was not as seamless as it usually is in her Victoria’s Secret shows, as she tripped and fell almost flat on her face. Immediately after falling, security men helped Candice up and she continued her walk down the runway, while attempting to fix her outfit.

Soon after the incident, Candice took to her Instagram to post a photo of her scraped up knee. Along with the photo she wrote a caption that reads, “Thank you to who ever picked me up off the runway tonight…left with little scratches but mostly a bruised ego. #ohwell.”

Unfortunately, Candice wasn’t the only model to take a fall during the show. Model Pooja Mor also toppled down while maneuvering her way up and down the mini staircases that were placed on the Givenchy runway.

Two crew members where killed when their plane crashed into a mountain in Medellin, Columbia on Friday. The two men have been identified as the plane owner, U.S. film pilot Alan Purwin and a Columbian man named Carlos Berl. In addition, pilot Jimmy Lee Garland was also hospitalized for injuries sustained during the crash.

In a statement to The Los Angeles Times, Universal Pictures said:

“An Aircraft carrying crew members crashed while returning to Enrique Olaya Herrera Airport in Medellin following [the] production wrap on the film Mena, resulting in two fatalities. Further details are not available at this time. On behalf of the production, our hearts and prayers go out to the crew members and their families at this difficult time.”

Two week earlier, Alan Purwin had posted a picture of himself posing in front of his plane with star Tom Cruise, in which he claimed to be “pushing the envelope in every way.”

Alan Purwin, Instagram post:

Mena is about commercial airline pilot Barry Seal (Cruise), who works undercover for the CIA to try and catch cocaine kingpin Pablo Escobar. Tom fits the role, as he is a licensed pilot in real life.

Tom Cruise has not yet commented on the unfortunate tragedy.
