While walking on the Spring/Summer 2009 runway for the legendary Alexander Mcqueen, Abbey Lee fainted as she was exiting the catwalk. It was said to have been due her extremely high heels paired with a tight corset. Whatever the case, Abbey Lee did not let the mishap get in the way of her continuing rise to the top.
