(derogatory noun) A model who collapses on the catwalk and doesn’t get up, thereby forcing other models to step over her. Coined by Stanford Blatch (Willie Garson) on June 3 Sex and the City. Carrie (Sarah Jessica Parker, below) is flattered and frazzled when Dolce & Gabbana handpick her to strut the runway. Tragically, the fashion-forward scribe trips and falls face forward. Blame it on the bubbly — not on the stilettos.
