A model bit it big time at the Rodarte show yesterday. "While it’s always a little cringe-worthy when a girl takes a stumble on the runway, this time, as we watched sweet Abbey Lee’s ankles start to tremble and buckle, it particularly pulled on our heartstrings: The shoes were unbelievably high (she didn’t stand a chance!), the girl behind her couldn’t help but stomp right by Lee as she sat sprawled on the runway (that’s what they’re told to do, as cold as it seems!), and we were just told Lee has broken both her ankles in the past (give the girl an effin’ flat, people!)."
