Some fashion fans are quick to turn their noses up at the new batch of models on the rise - but Gigi Hadid has just proven she's not to be messed with on the runway.
The 22-year-old closed the Anna Sui show overnight at New York Fashion Week and suffered a fashion emergency moments after appearing on the stage.
As she emerged, her platform sandal fell off, reports News.com.au.
While other models may have been thrown by such an unexpected blunder and considered slinking off backstage, Hadid didn't miss a beat.
She powered down the runway with only one (incredibly) high heel on her left foot.
And to make up the height difference and keep her balance, the model walked on the tiptoes of her right foot.
Later, as the rest of the models did one last finale walk, Hadid strutted next to her sister Bella Hadid, leaning on her for support.
