You ask, we answer: 'Do they shoot models if they break a leg?'

joehead Skipweasel (sounds like a regular at the Mos Eisley Cantina, what? But I digress), after digesting this morning's 10:01 a.m. post ("High Tide Heels") commented, "Given how hard it is to walk forwards in flippers to start with, adding heels is just asking for trouble. Do they shoot models if they break a leg?"

No sooner did his question come in over the virtual transom than I pulled my crack research team away from their many and varied duties (retrieving a button cell battery dropped down a heating vent, etc.) to find out whether in fact such a fate awaits models who fall while strutting their stuff.

Believe it or not, they came up with footage of the Gaultier show featuring the model pictured in the earlier post (below) —


and indeed, she almost did a face plant!

It occurs two minutes and 18 seconds into the video up top.

Nice job, team.

Even though you didn't answer the question.

Chris -- you should just ditch those leather pants all together. Mine use to try to kill me. I have them locked up in my bedroom safe so they can't escape, but I'm really thinking I'm gonna have to put them down. Of all the pants out there, black leather is the most feral and even trained, will turn on you in a heartbeat.

Good luck.

LOL - I always pray before I navigate my clothes (darn black leather pants took me to a dive bar last Saturday!~)
