Gruesome Surfing Accident Might Keep Lauren Hutton From the Met Ball

By

This year's Costume Institute Ball at the Met is supermodel themed, but Lauren Hutton might not make it, due to a surfing accident she was in two weeks ago in Hawaii. A kid hit her knee with his board and ripped some ligaments. "[O]nce they go, the bones fall sideways inside the bag of skin," she explains. Hutton made it back to L.A. but must decide “whether I want to go through a five-and-a-half-hour flight to New York with my leg up in the air in public because I can’t bend it more than 30 degrees.” She's supposed to be Michael Kors's date.
