Ouch! Usually when Candice Swanepoel wears a new outfit, we are immediately filled with wardrobe envy, but we won't be touching the shoes she wore last night with a ten-foot pole!

The South African beauty was walking the Runway for Givenchy at Friday night's New York Fashion Week show, when she lost her balance and face-planted right on the catwalk.

Seconds before the stumble, Candice was looking her regular elegant self as she modeled a semi-sheer black frock and a pair of red and black sling-back ankle boots (yes there is such a thing), but it all went wrong as she neared a corned on the catwalk.

She seemed to trip one foot over the other before crashing down to the ground on her hands and knees. Men sitting in the front row of the show and security handlers rushed to her aid.

However, ever the classy lady, Candice quickly recovered, gave the crowd a smile and a two-handed wave before finishing out her run.

But she wasn't left unscathed! After the show, the Victoria's Secret stunner took to Instagram to showcase her battle scars, posting a photo of her badly-scraped knees and the offending footwear.

"Thank you to who ever picked me up off the runway tonight. ??left with little scratches but mostly a bruised ego ?☺️? #ohwell," she wrote.
