Naomi Campbell Conquers The Vivienne Westwood Heels That Almost Killed Her 20 Years Ago

Models fall on the runway all the time. But no fall is as famous as Naomi Campbell's epic stumble in 1993 during Vivienne Westwood's Paris Fashion Week show.

Sadly, the British supermodel was no match for Westwood's insanely high, lace-up platform heels and her very public tumble is now fashion history. But sometimes, life offers you second chances, and that's exactly what happened for the 43-year-old on Saturday during an appearance on UK's "The Jonathan Ross Show."

After chatting with Naomi about love, life and (of course) anger management, Ross pulled out the infamous Westwood heels and challenged the runway queen to strut in them again.

"The Face" judge was shocked to be reunited with the monstrous shoes after 20 years, but like a true supermodel (or sadist) she stepped up to the challenge.

Dressed in a beaded silver gown, Naomi confidently worked the "Jonathan Ross Show" runway with grace and ease. She had a slight wobble, but totally managed to stay on her feet. Victory at long last!

Watch Naomi's victorious walk in the video below and make sure to check out the second clip for her epic tumble seen around the world.

It happens to the best of them...
