It's the stuff hundreds of YouTube supercuts are made of—and we're honestly surprised it doesn't happen more often, all things considered (sky-high heels plus stride-constricting gown): the model runway fall. And while it's nothing more than a simple, ordinary tumble, it always nabs headlines.

Models, showgoers and fashion editors alike cringed when a model took a swan dive at Elie Saab's runway show yesterday. The slight, dramatic tilt forward reminded us of Jennifer Lawrence's now-famous Oscars tumble, prompted by her characteristic fixation on baked goods. Hey, we get it, J. Law: confusing "kick, walk" and "cake, walk" is a natural mix-up for us, too.

Oh, poor thing.
