Ming Xi’s age is 28 years old, and she was born in Shanghai, China on March 8, 1989. As a model in the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, all eyes were on her when she walked the ramp. Ming Xi has been a part of the show four other times before, but, unfortunately, the 28-year-old fell on her knees when the show was in her hometown last night! Looking at the video, it seems like the Chinese model fell when she got caught up in her flowing, sheer ensemble.

Despite the fact, that she fell in front of millions of viewers, she handled the situation gracefully. Although it was a mortifying moment for Xi, she didn’t let it show on her face and smiled through the whole ordeal, all the time balancing her beautiful headgear and trying to get up to continue her walk. In fact, Xi seems to be such a sport that she wasn’t even scared to laugh at herself! She adjusted her hair and got up to complete her walk, with a helping hand from a fellow model. The audience and Xi’s fellow models applauded her, and she finished her walk gracefully.

A Fellow Model to the Rescue

Ming Xi looked absolutely stunning in a blue lingerie look, which was complete with floral wings and silver medallions. When Ming Xi fell on the ramp, fellow model Gizele Oliveira helped her to steady and balance herself, so that she could walk it out and pose at the end of the runway. This act undoubtedly proves that VS models are there for each other through thick and thin.

The Aftermath of the Fall

As many of you may already know, I fell during my 5th year walking at the Victoria's Secret show yesterday. It was no doubt one of the hardest moments I have ever had to go through in my career, especially since the show was taking place in my hometown, in front of my mother's and my people's eyes. However, the support I received from everyone yesterday was incredible and I am truly grateful to everyone who was there for me. @ed_razek Thank you for your supportive words and your continuous support throughout these 7 years. @giizeleoliveira Thank you for helping me up after the fall, it was a very selfless and loving act from you.

I will pick myself up from where I fell, and I will keep going in order to repay all the support you all have given me!! ❤️️#vsfashionshow @victoriassecret
