Remember how mom always reminded you to tie your shoelaces?

It’s advice model Candice Swanepoel probably wishes she heeded when she took a nosedive in the middle of a runway show for Givenchy during New York Fashion Week after tripping on an untied shoelace.

According to PEOPLE, onlookers quickly rushed to her aid and helped her back on her feet, but the Victoria’s Secret beauty proved she was a pro by waving her helpers back so she could continue her runway walk.

Swanepoel wasn’t the only one to take a tumble; fellow model Pooja Mor also fell later during the same show, tripping while walking down a small set of stairs.

Proving she doesn’t take herself too seriously, Swanepoel even joked about the incident on Instagram, displaying she did not walk away unscathed:

Thank you to who ever picked me up off the runway tonight. left with little scratches but mostly a bruised ego #ohwell
