Footage has been posted online of an unfortunate incident where a model had major problems with her heels and ended up taking a bit of a tumble.
The unlucky situation happened at Valentino's Spring 2023 Haute Couture show, which was being held in Paris.
But the show didn't exactly go to plan for the fashion house as US model Kristen McMenamy took a rather unfortunate fall while walking down the runway in front of a packed crowd. Watch it below:
The clip that is circulating on social media shows McMenamy in the middle of the catwalk with sky-high stilettos on, when they suddenly give way.
She dramatically tumbles to the floor, with a couple of people rushing over to her to help get her back up.
But the model decides to take the heels off, before standing back up and walking down the rest of the runway looking rather embarrassed and annoyed.
The short clip was shared on Twitter by the user @PRADAXBBY, and has since gone viral on the platform.
At the time of writing, the video which was captioned: "it’s like every season valentino have an issue with their heels," has almost eight million views and over 50,000 likes.
Many have taken to the comment section of the post to react to McMenamy's dramatic fall.
One person said: "This video makes me never want to buy Valentino shoes."
Meanwhile, a second added: "Dang that poor girl seemed so agitated that she couldn’t get through it. That’s so sad. I always feel for models."
Some were also worried for the model as she appeared to walk off gingerly and on the outer sides of her feet once she got back up.
"The shoes messed her up so bad she forgot how to walk on her own feet," one user remarked.
While another added: "Her walk just after she took them off was slightly terrifying."
It appears that McMenamy did see the funny side of the incident afterwards as she took to Instagram to share a picture of herself gearing up to head on the runway.
Many of the model's followers were keen to ask her if she was alright after she posted a photo captioned: 'Before the Fall'.
"I hope you're safe," one person said, meanwhile, a second asked: "Are you okay?"
While McMenamy did not reply directly to these comments, her post making light of the situation puts to bed some concern.
