Model Hailey Baldwin broke her foot again at the Met Gala, similar to last year’s event, where she previously broke her foot the first time. Baldwin had tweeted on social media a picture of her foot in a medical boot. She had broken her foot at 2015’s gala while on the way to the airport. She was spotted wearing a long gown and high heels at 2016’s gala, which may have been a possible factor in this year’s fall.

Broken Foot Causes, Symptoms, and Treatment
A broken foot is caused by one of the bones in the foot typically breaking when bended, crushed, or stretched beyond its natural capabilities. Usually the location of the fracture indicates how the break occurred, whether it was through an object, fall, or any other type of injury.
Common Symptoms of Broken Feet:
- Blue (foot)
Those that suspect they have a broken foot shoot seek urgent medical attention where a medical professional could diagnose the severity.
Treatment for broken bones varies depending on the cause, severity and location. Some will require the use of splints, casts or crutches while others could even involve surgery to repair the broken bones. Personal care includes the use of ice and keeping the foot stabilized and elevated.
