Gigi Hadid confronts runway crasher at Chanel Paris fashion show
Supermodel Gigi Hadid came to the rescue after a crasher stormed the runway at Chanel’s spring 2020 presentation on Tuesday morning at the Grand Palais.
The crasher who took a leap from the audience seating area and began strutting down the runway alongside the real models, was identified by WWD as French comedian and YouTuber Marie Benoliel best known as Marie S’Infiltre.
She was stopped by Gigi who was posing as part of the show’s finale in front of the photo pit. The 24-year-old model appeared to speak to the crasher sternly before placing a hand on her shoulder and escorting her off the runway.
Here are videos from the scene below;

This is coming after Hadid’s viral moment at New York Fashion Week in September. The supermodel was walking in the Marc Jacobs Spring 2020 runway show at Park Avenue Armory last month, when her shoe’s heel broke. She however continued the walk barefoot.
