Gigi Hadid just stepped in to the rescue when a crasher stormed the runway at Chanel’s spring fashion show in Paris!
What’s up? It’s Drew Dorsey here with Clevver News and a runway crasher just hopped up on the catwalk during Chanel’s 2020 show at Paris Fashion Week.
It’s actually quite a crazy video see for yourself.
Like hello, aren’t these events supposed to be extremely exclusive and highly protected? This wasn’t some small boutique fashion show, this was CHANEL. Where was the security?
Fans captured videos of the incident and the crasher can literally be seen walking on the runway from the audience seating area.
She even wore a black and white tweed look to try to blend in.
However she didn’t fool anyone, especially not supermodel Gigi Hadid.
With no security guards to be found, Gigi took matters into her own hands and directed the intruder off the stage.
Seriously where is THE SECURITY ?
I’m shocked this runway crasher made it as far as she did before being removed off stage by one of the models nonetheless.
Gigi had a stern look on her face and kept her hand on the crasher’s shoulder as she escorted her away from the other models.
Cardi B, who was at the event also revealed that she was actually a little scared when this runway crasher hopped up on stage.
Sooo, who is this person you might ask?
It wasn’t that hard to figure out that it’s Marie Benoliel, who is best known as Marie S’Infiltre.
She literally told us it was HER crashing the show in the comments on a video of the incident that WWD shared.
WWD shared the video and wrote quote, “There was a bizarre incident today at Chanel, where a woman jumped on the runway during the finale, inserting herself among the lineup of models.”
To which Marie replied and said quote, “that’s me” with the heart, middle finger, and waving emojis.
And in case you aren’t familiar with her work, she’s a comedian and YouTube personality with over 225,000 subscribers.
She also currently has a one woman show on now at a theatre in Paris.
So if I had to guess, the motive was probably the same as most YouTubers who pull pranks like this… Clout.
She even posted a video of the entire scandal to her YouTube channel and titled it “I INFILTRATED THE CHANEL SHOW” and it’s already got over 30 thousand views!
Though I’m sure while this may come with some notoriety, I’m not exactly sure it was the kind Marie was hoping for.
There is likely some sort of actual punishment for doing something like this. Like maybe a fine? No word yet though on if Marie has been officially punished but you don’t just get away with doing something like this at such a big event.
And while some people thought what Marie did was entertaining, most people are rallying around Gigi and were impressed by how she stepped up.
In the comments of the video WWD shared, one person wrote quote, “Security, sashay away... Gigi Hadid, you’re the winner of this week’s challenge ”
And another said quote, “DON’T MESS WITH GIGI ”
The girls walking that runway have worked their whole lives for that moment, sit down Marie.
Also, in this day and age, this kind of stuff isn’t even very funny because it could legit be a security concern. The models who were walking on stage had no idea who this girl was and what her motives were.
Thankfully though, even with the bizarre cameo, the show was still a success.
The show was Virginie Viard's first Paris Fashion Week show as the brand's creative director, who took on the role following Karl Lagerfeld's death.
And this crasher definitely didn’t ruin it for everyone, the models slayed the runway and celebs like Cardi B and Anna Wintour loved the show.
But I want to know what you guys think.
Did you think Marie’s stunt was funny or unnecessary? And what do you think of how Gigi responded?
