Many questions were asked following the tearful catwalk appearance of Auguste Abeliunaite at the Jil Sander show in Milan on Friday. Did she break up with her boyfriend? Was it the extremely high heels? Now it seems an explanation by the model herself has been offered: "There wasn't any small shoes or my emocional [sic] problems!!!! The lights was very strong and cameras was flashing all the time. My eyes are very sensitive that's why I was crying," she responded on WSJ.

Her agent, Piero Piazzi, has since confirmed this story, by saying: "She has delicate eyes. We were laughing with the casting director after the show."

But that's not all, apparently two other models were also brought to tears due to their sensitivity to the lights at Jil Sander.

"We love the girl. We think she is amazing," added Piazzi.

Mystery = solved.
