Lindsey Wixson Falls Multiple Times on Runway (VIDEO)

Lindsey WixsonSeventeen-year-old supermodel Lindsey Wixson proved yesterday that even professional platform stiletto-wearers can't stay upright 100% of the time.

She wiped out spectacularly at Naomi Campbell's Fashion for Relief runway show in Cannes ...

... and she was hardly the only model to fall down during the show!

It's so refreshing to see that even the world's top supermodels can't wear those ridiculous platform stilettos, don't you think?

And I'm so glad these girls were good sports about it.

What I really want to know, though, is what brand of shoes these models were wearing. Because whatever they are, I'M STAYING THE HELL AWAY.

Anyway, the crowd reacted nicely to all these falls, and with good reason -- the show was put on to raise money for victims of the tsunami in Japan.

Other models who participated (and didn't fall, thank God!) were Jane Fonda, Yasmin LeBon, and Johnny Depp's domestic partner, Vanessa Paradis.

What do you think of these runway falls?

I think they need to practice before trying to go on the runway they will learn when they twist a ankle or two ankles.

It's too bad the guys aren't taught a little chivalry. He missed the perfect opportunity to offer her a hand, and a little stability.

This is why I wear flats or low-heel shoes.  It's stupid to wear something you can't walk in and may injure you.

Why didn't that guy run ahead and help that poor girl in the brown dress?!! What was he going to do if he caught up to her? Step over her as she laid on the runway in a heap?

I think she already did twist her ankle; either that or she broke the shoe. Multiple falls in a row like that remind me of when I've sprained my ankle- you're more prone to it turning again for a while (likely due to overstretched tendons? I dunno though don't quote me). Poor chickie, those shoes are a death trap.
