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

The South African beauty fell to the floor, grazing her arms and knees, while walking in Givenchy's spring/summer 2016 runway show on Friday night.

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.
