You cannot deny that the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show is basically like a national holiday to all of us ladies. We’ve had our hearts set on those ginormous fluffy white angel wings and glittery runways to spectacular musical guests since the beginning of time. We’ve also had some top models grace the VS runway like the beautiful Tyra Banks to Adriana Lima, which just pretty much sums up how we’ve been pretty accustomed to the show’s perfect layout so when one of this year’s models took a tumble, we were all left a little dumbfounded.
Can you just imagine how terrible it may feel to fall in one of the most anticipated shows of the year? 28-year-old Chinese model Ming Xi was the unfortunate gal who drastically ate the runway. Ming isn’t a newbie in the modeling world though, she was discovered in 2009 after she appeared in a television competition. So as a model veteran, it’s no surprise that she took the fall with beauty and grace. Which was not left unnoticed because her recovery went completely viral.
Ming Xi falling is still ten times more graceful than Kendall Jenner doing her very best lmao https://t.co/Tjz1N2X2MG

Ming Xi fell & then the whole audience cheered on her for a confident boost. I’d run back inside but she kept that smile throughout her walk.
