Crying Model Explains the Tears

Model Auguste Abeliunaite's teary turns down Jil Sander's runway were the talk of Milan Fashion Week. But why was she crying? A commenter on the Wall Street Journal's Heard on the Runway blog claiming to have worked backstage at the show said the high, uncomfortable shoes caused a painful cramp in a foot Auguste broke a while ago. But Auguste herself appears to have counter-commented on the blog, explaining she cried because the lights were too strong and her eyes are very sensitive. We hope she gets used to that if she wants a runway career. [Heard on the Runway/WSJ via Jezebel]
