When you're a supermodel, the first and foremost thing expected form you is to fashionably strut down the ramp in designer clothes and accessories. Needless to say, expecting models to get the catwalk right is like expecting a teacher to teach.

Although catwalk fails may not necessarily be clubbed with "wardrobe malfunction", they are almost equally embarrassing. You can wear the right dress, right sunglasses, flaunt the right hairdo, but still live your worst nightmare, if you don't carry off those six-inch heels well.

Whether it is the mismatched combination of their skyscraper-high heels and floors cleaned to shiny perfection, or models skipping meals to maintain the size-zero figure, or just clumsy nervousness, the epic catwalk fails of these beautiful supermodels have made for one of the most hilarious slideshows.

Photos of these funny supermodel falls come from the most reputed fashion collectives too, like the New York Fashion week, Milan Fashion Week, China Fashion Week, Georgian Fashion Week and Sao Paulo Fashion Week.
