Model Barbara Meier suffered an embarrassing misstep (literally) as she walked the runway at today's Lena Hoschek A/W 2010 show during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in Berlin, accidentally losing one of her high-heeled pumps mid-catwalk.
But what she lacks in sticky feet, Meier -- who won the second season of "Germany's Next Topmodel" -- made up for in poise, calmly stepping out of the wayward shoe and then removing the second pump before completing her runway turn.
On her way back the model picked up the runaway heels and tucked them behind her back like a champ.
We'll cop to a whiff of disappointment after failing to see yet another case of runway roadkill, but mostly we're impressed at Meier's ability to keep her cool. Guess she was "sole"-trained?
And next time, maybe she'll Krazy Glue those suckers.
Meanwhile, see the terrifying heels that made three models quit the Alexander McQueen show.
