Just check out her sizzling new photos.

Swanepoel, 26, hails from South Africa. She best known for her work for lingerie brand Victoria’s Secret.

Because it was Givenchy’s first NYFW show, the brand went all out to hire top models, including Kendall Jenner.

Kendall, naturally, drew half-sister Kim Kardashsian and hubbie Kanye West.

Also spotted in the crowd were Nicki Minaj, Julia Roberts, Jennifer Hudson, Amanda Seyfried, Steven Tyler, Hailee Steinfeld and other celebrities.

Curiosity over creative director Riccardo Tisci’s designs even drew colleagues like Alexander Wang, Michael Kors, Joseph Altuzarra and Vera Wang.

The catwalk was an obstacle course for models, who had to negotiate a series of wooden steps during their walk.

Model Pooja Mor tripped and slid down the steps on her knees. Attendees quickly helped her to her feet, and she gamely continued.

Swanepoel made it over the steps, but reportedly tripped because her shoelaces came untied. D’oh! Audience members quickly helped her to her feet. She smiled gave a little wave and kept walking.

It must have hurt. She posted photos later on Instagram showing her skinned knees.

“Thank you to who ever picked me up off the runway tonight,” she wrote. “Left with little scratches but mostly a bruised ego.” “#ohwell.”

Swanepoel has nothing to be ashamed of. It happens to the best of them. She proved that. Check out her hot new photos from New York’s My Town magazine. And, rest assured, she’s still at the top of game.
