Shoes that toppled Naomi on show

A PAIR of shoes which toppled catwalk queen Naomi Campbell will form part of an exhibition celebrating British fashion designer Vivienne Westwood.

The supermodel fell while wearing the blue, platform-heeled Super Elevated Gillie shoes at a catwalk show in 1993.

Bowes Museum’s Louise Cooling, 23, is seen examining the nine-inch heels, which are the star attraction at the exhibition, which opens in County Durham today and runs until July 10.

The show, celebrating the ingenuity and creativity of Vivienne Westwood shoes from 1973-2011, has already made its way to Moscow and Beirut.
