And when they aren't, it's nice to see them behave the way Bella Hadid did on the runway at New York Fashion Week, modeling for designer Michael Kors. (If that name sounds familiar, she's the daughter of Yolanda Hadid, who appeared on "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills," and sister of fellow model Gigi Hadid.)

Bella Hadid proves she's a pro with a little smile under the spotlight.

But she got right up again with a smile and carried on, even tweeting later that she's got a new career since the incident:

So far as we know, Kendall Jenner, who also took to the Kors catwalk that night, had no problems making it through.

"It's a hard job to have, but I'm so blessed to be able to call this my job," she told E! News at the event.
