Candice Swanepoel took a nasty tumble at New York Fashion Week.

The Victoria's Secret fell to the floor, grazing her arms and knees, while walking in Givenchy's spring/summer 2016 runway show on Friday night (11.09.15).

Candice was offered support from audience members in the front row and made a graceful recovery, continuing to walk down the catwalk - despite sporting some cuts on her knees.

Taking to Instagram after the incident, Candice, 26, said she was physically fine but had suffered a ''bruised ego''.

She wrote: ''Thank you to who ever picked me up off the runway tonight. left with little scratches but mostly a bruised ego #ohwell (sic)''

Stars in attendance at the show included Kim Kardashian West - whose sister Kendall Jenner also walked for Givenchy - her husband Kanye West, Nicki Minaj and Ciara.

Last month, Candice got engaged to Brazilian model Hermann Nicoli.

A source close to the South African beauty told E! News: ''She couldn't be happier.''

Earlier this year, Candice admitted she is eager to start a family, but claimed she already felt married.

She said: ''I would love to have children. I'm not sure about marriage yet. I kind of feel married already. 10 years is kind of a marriage, so I don't really need papers to tell me that.''
