We'd imagine it's nerve-wracking enough to make it down your standard 30-foot runway in stilettos, but imagine having to strut your stuff for 1.98 miles...
That's exactly what models in Hong Kong were faced with over the weekend, when they participated in a fashion show that broke the Guinness World Record for the longest-ever catwalk. According to Vogue UK, "A new world record for the World's Greatest Catwalk has been set in Hong Kong, at 3.2 kilometres long.The catwalk, a collaboration between the Danish Fashion Institute and the Hong Kong Fashion Designer's Association, used the city's impressive skyline as the backdrop to the show...The occasion was marked with the presentation of the official Guinness Book of World Records diploma to representatives from both the Danish and Chinese establishments."
The show featured 346 models, and at least one of then photo-blogged about her awesome experience, which she said took 45 minutes and was "one of the coolest shows I've done to date." How awesome is that?!
