If the catwalk at Milan Fashion Week is anything to go by, the hottest trend for Spring 2010 is... model snafus?!?
First, we had the model oozing blood from her stomach at the Seduzioni Diamonds show. Calm down, calm down -- it was fake.
Now, the pretties at Gaetano Navarra's Milan show have given us -- not once, but twice -- the ultimate walk of shame, striding down the runway for a few feet in teetering gold pumps before giving up, removing the floundering footwear and walking the rest of the way barefoot.
Don't get us wrong. We love a good model pratfall as much as -- okay, more than -- the next person. But perhaps designers might want to reconsider the shoes they make these girls wear?
Heck, if an Amazonian goddess can't make it a few yards in these treacherous shoes, what are we plebeians meant to do?
To make matters worse, a closer look reveals that the too-big heels were stuffed with cotton (the oldest styling trick in the book) to fit the model feet. But on the catwalk, that's a recipe for "runway roadkill."
Of course, we could be wrong. Maybe it wasn't a style slip-up at all. Perhaps former President Bush was in the crowd and she was just warming up her pitching arm.
Milan Fashion Week has delivered more than just model high jinks. Check out the beauty trend that's got the industry buzzing.
