Victoria’s Secret Angel, Ming Xi, experienced a fall during her runway walk at the VSFashion Show in Shanghai.
The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show 2017 in Shanghai faced some pretty significant hurdles.
Firstly, top model Gigi Hadid was denied her visa from the Chinese Authorities.
Secondly, top singer Katy Perry was also denied her visa and could not perform at the show.
Finally, model Ming Xi experienced a fall at the event leaving many shocked!
Ming Xi has been modeling for Victoria Secret since 2013.
As the model strutted her way on stage, her shoe caught in the train of cloth attached to her outfit, and she slipped on stage.
It was Ming Xi’s 5th Victoria Secret Fashion show. The model later revealed that this was one of the hardest moments of her life.
The moment, however, was more special when Ming handled it with a lot of grace and a big smile.
The model was courageous. She put a smile on her face and picked herself up.
Now that is what we call courage!
Xi got up, adjusted her floral headpiece and finished her walk like a pro.
Gizele Oliveira, another Victoria Secret model, came to Ming’s rescue and stopped to help her get up.
Xi stated after the show, “As many of you may already know, I fell during my 5th year walking at Victoria’s Secret show yesterday. It was no doubt one of the hardest moments I have ever had to go through in my career, especially since the show was taking place in my hometown, in front of my mother’s and people’s eyes.”
The Chinese model was also very thankful to everyone who supported her.
She said, “However, the support I received from everyone yesterday was incredible, and I am truly grateful to everyone who was there for me. @ed_razek Thank you for your supportive word and your continuous support throughout these seven years.”
The Chinese Angel also wrote to thank Gisela Oliveira who helped her recover from the slip.
Ming wrote, “Thank you for helping me up after the fall. It was a very selfless and loving act from. Thank you to all the girls who rushed to comfort me backstage after what had happened. You are all family to me. Lastly, thank you to everyone who sent and left me supportive messages. I will pick myself up from where I fell, and I will keep going to repay all the support you all have given me.”
Not long ago, Bella Hadid too suffered a wardrobe malfunction on stage.
The 21-year-old model suffered a nip slip at the show accidentally flashing the audience.
However, Bella owned her moment, and no nip slip was going to ruin it for her.
The famous model lead the other angels at the show making it a huge success.
More power to the Victoria’s Secret Angels!
