Back by popular demand, it's CC's Runway Oops!
What’s scarier than these fashion failings? Our occasional joy at witnessing such mishaps!
From Amanda Laine’s crazy brows (right) to broken sandals at Anne Valerie Hash (left), there were some serious atrocities on the Spring 2009 runways!
Brace yourselves, darlings, because some of these shots are horrifying!
Rear view raunch at Marc by Marc Jacobs – ick!
A toe or tow tries to escape at Alexander McQueen and
Matthew Williamson
Donna Karan (it's not as bad as TP, but it's pretty close!)
Marc by Marc Jacobs - ewwwwww.
From too much toe to not enough, at Thakoon (right).
Models’ legs take a serious beating, it seems!
Vera Wang (left)
Bottega Veneta (right)
(Note to self: wear shin guards when playing soccer backstage!)

A backstage joke? CC highly doubts whether Vera or any of her models feast on donuts! Pic via
But there’s no use crying over spilled milk (or slipped nips, ill-fitting shoes, etc.), right?

i understand that some fashion decisions are almost too cool for me to understand. but come on, when your toes are spilling over your shoes? that's never chic.

"No use crying over nip slips" is going to be my motto from now on.

Meg said...

Hehe, you're right. Some of those were pretty scary!

Sharon S said...

Hi there-ewww, the toes trying to escape don't look too good, haha!!

Bella Harris said...

Okay, so it just goes to show... no one's perfect, but it's nice to have a little proof that all of those gorgeous women have at least one flaw!

But seriously, my feet hurt just looking at their battle wounds! Ouch!!

Kimberly said...

What is up with the girl with the platinum nip slip? I have never seen a nip that color.

Angela said...

i adore the orange halston dress. i agree with you about those hanging toes. not a pretty sight.

La Belette Rouge said...

The toes escaping from the shoes are just horrible. Really, designers, can you not give the poor models a shoe that fits. Seriously not pretty!


CC, let me know how you do with the hair products! :) Thanks for the comment, so lovely of you to drop by and leave a little note for me. Hoping your weekend is fantastic. Mine will be rainy.. :/

Daniela Valdez said...

OMG! I don't get it, they still look so "cool".. I mean, I'm sure they realize what's happening! They're not only models... they're great actresses as well!

Dana (MODAna) said...

Very funny! It's refreshing to see less than perfect fashion images and it's good to be reminded of how much illusion there is in the fashion world :)

Aliena said...

hahha what a great post!!! i'll be laughing for a while now... and have nightmares with those toes tonight!!!

dee said...

OK not only are her toes spilling over, they are all sorts of heinous in that crooked witch-type yellow heel!

Despite the nip slips, however, that orange dress was literally my favorite look of the entire season. I might have to buy it.

STEFANIE said...
