Going, going, gone! Model Ming Xi stacks it on the Victoria's Secret runway

Proof the catwalk can be a dangerous place and even angels fall from the heavens.

Overnight, the 2017 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show kicked off in glittering style at the Mercedes Benz Arena in Shanghai.
But for Chinese supermodel Ming Xi, her strut down the runway ended in disaster after her towering heels and flowing cape tripped her up.
The 28-year-old stacked it - albeit in a very graceful fashion - in the middle of the show.
But proving she's the ultimate trouper, she simply readjusted her headpiece and got straight back up there and continued on with the show, complete with a sparkling smile on her face.
And Ming Xi needn’t worry too much, she’s definitely not the first star to trip up on the job.
Who could forget when South African supermodel Candice Swanepoel suffered a nasty tumble at the Givenchy SS16 runway at New York Fashion Week in 2015?
The statuesque stunner’s ginormous stilettos got the better of her and she went T over A, landing flat on her face.
Thankfully, the 29-year-old was quickly tended to by an audience member and she managed to jump straight up.
"Thank you to who ever picked me up off the runway tonight. Left with little scratches but mostly a bruised ego #ohwell," she tweeted shortly after the mishap.
