Model Gigi Hadid escorts intruder from Chanel catwalk
Model Gigi Hadid turned security guard during the Chanel show at Paris Fashion Week, quickly stepping in to escort a prankster who had climbed on to the catwalk.
Dressed in a similar-looking ensemble to those on display in the spring/ summer 2020 show, the gatecrasher managed to get in line with the models as they strode down the runway.
But after getting away with a circuit of the catwalk, she was quickly collared and led away by 24-year-old model Hadid.
The intruder has since been identified as YouTube prankster Marie Benoliel – also known as Marie S’Infiltre, with 227,000 subscribers – who has a history of similar stunts.
Videos of the stage-crash quickly went viral on social media and spawned numerous memes.
Hadid and her sister Bella are are among the highest-paid models in the world, both featuring in Forbes’ top 10 for 2018.
But it looks like she could have a job in security to fall back on if it ever goes pear-shaped.
