Holy Chanel! Gigi Hadid Plays It Cool as Hell While Escorting a Serial Runway Crasher Off the Stage

It’s no secret that Gigi Hadid is one of the most sought-after models in the industry. And, at Chanel’s spring/summer 2020 Paris Fashion Week show today, she proved she has another set of skills up her sleeves.

The 24-year-old model acted as a stand-in security guard when YouTuber Marie S’Infiltre stepped onto the catwalk from the audience and started strutting her stuff like it was no big deal. You’ll see the 28-year-old YouTuber clumsily infiltrate (fittingly, S’Infiltre means “to infiltrate” in French) the Chanel runway in the beginning of the video below, captured by Women’s Wear Daily West Coast executive editor Booth Moore.

S’Infiltre, clad in head-to-toe Chanel and looking an awful lot like Mary Poppins, evaded security for about 20 seconds, but she couldn’t get away from Hadid. Although the Parisienne catwalk crasher did walk the runway for quite some time, when she came face to face with Hadid, the model calmly and coolly took her shoulder and walked her off the stage.

In the video above, courtesy of i-D magazine, you’ll notice S’Infiltre tried to play it off as part of her bit, but Hadid was none too pleased. Keeping a straight face while S’Infiltre mock protested, Hadid continued on like it was just another day in the office. Now that, ladies and gentlemen, is a true pro.

Surprisingly, this isn’t the first time S’Infiltre has crashed a runway. Earlier during PFW, she snuck onto the Etam lingerie brand’s catwalk.

Marie S’Infiltre is definitely living up to her name.
