It is a truth universally acknowledged that Gigi and Bella Hadid are runway pros. They’re also known to have a very sweet sisterly rapport. They swap clothes and career counsel; they don’t get vicious when vying for the same British Fashion Award.
Occasionally, one or the other will experience a runway mishap. (It’s a simple matter of probability — when you’re walking in that many shows, one or two are bound to go less than smoothly.) At Michael Kors’ Spring 2017 show, Bella took an accidental tumble (but managed to look hot whilst doing so). At Versace’s Fall 2016 outing, Gigi’s right nipple popped out of her dress (but she handled it like a pro).
Last night, on the Anna Sui Spring 2018 runway, Gigi suffered another wardrobe malfunction. As the Vogue cover star closed the show in her second look of the evening, the strap on her right sparkly stiletto came undone and, like another fair-haired princess before her, she lost the shoe.
Needless to say, 2016’s International Model of the Year was totally unfazed. She kept her composure and completed her loop (her sock-clad foot on tippy toe). The glitch is barely noticeable in the collection shots.
However, for the finale, Gigi didn’t have to go it alone. Her baby sister Bella, who’d also walked the show, served as a human crutch. Bella looped her arm around Gigi’s waist, Gigi slung her arm over Bella’s shoulder and the duo took to the catwalk, emanating sisterly love with every step. It was cute AF. See above/below.

After the show, Anna Sui’s team took a moment to acknowledge Gigi’s poise and professionalism.
And a great time was had by all. See all the looks from the Anna Sui show below.
