Model falls on the 2017 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show runway -- but recovers in flawless fashion editors

The art of recovering from a fall proves just how skilled a model really is. Model Ming Xi proved to the world that she's a total catwalk pro when she fell -- looking absolutely graceful, we might add -- mid-runway walk during Monday's taping of the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show. The show was filmed at the Shanghai's Mercedes-Benz Arena -- in front of an audience of 18,000 people.

Ming turned what could've been a totally mortifying situation into one of the best, and heartwarming moments, of the show.

The 28-year-old Chinese model looked absolutely glamorous walking down the runway in a blue lingerie look complete with floral wings and silver medallions when, suddenly, she slipped:


But like the good sport that she is, Ming flashed a huge smile on her face the whole time. Fellow model Gizele Oliveira helped Ming steady herself so that she could pose at the end of the runway, proving that the Victoria's Secret models are there for each other no matter what:
