Naomi Campbell has reflected on her iconic runway fall in a throwback post on social media.
The British supermodel was just 23 when she took a tumble while walking in the Vivienne Westwood show back in 1993, with her outfit comprised of a sweater, plaid skirt, white tights, pink feather boa, and a pair of sky-high platforms.
The blue leather Ghillie shoes, created by the fashion designer, featured an imitation crocodile skin pattern atop a nine-inch heel with a four-inch front platform.
Naomi posted the infamous video on Instagram last week, with the clip showing her hitting the runway with a bump before bursting into laughter, in an effort to teach her followers a valuable lesson.
“‘Do not judge me by my successes, judge me by how many times I fell down and got back up again.’ – Nelson Mandela @viviennewestwood #1993 #fbf,” the 49-year-old wrote in the caption.
Some of the star’s famous friends took to the comments sections to show their love for the beauty, including Christy Turlington, who was one of The Big Five supermodels of the 1990s, alongside Naomi, Linda Evangelista, Cindy Crawford, and Claudia Schiffer.
“This moment and what you did with it @naomi True Grit & Grace!” she posted.
While Italian fashion designer Giambattista Valli recalled being at Vivienne Westwood’s spectacle during Paris Fashion Week more than 26 years ago.
“Oh my God I was there at the show and you were absolutely brilliant!!!” he added.
