Gigi Hadid is officially a member of the fashion police.

The model showed off her bouncing skills at Chanel’s spring/summer 2020 show on Tuesday after a woman decided to crash the runway at Paris Fashion Week. 

The woman, clad in a black and white tweed jacket with a matching skirt that looked like Chanel, hopped onto the runway during the fashion house’s finale.

Women’s Wear Daily editor Booth Moore captured video footage of the prankster awkwardly jumping onto the stage and walking the rest of the catwalk.

Tyler McCall, editor-in-chief of, filmed Hadid speaking to the runway crasher and escorting her off the stage by hand after security guards failed to spot the prankster because she blended in so well.

“Omg a woman literally just CRASHED the Chanel finale and @gigihadid just bounced her off stage, what an iconic moment,” McCall tweeted. 

Social media loved the way Hadid took control of the bizarre situation: 

The woman was later identified by WWD as MarieBenoliel, a YouTube prankster who goes by Marie S’Infiltre. Benoliel also crashed the Etam show that took place last week.

She identified herself on WWD’s Instagram post about the Chanel crasher by writing “That’s me” alongside a heart emoji and a middle finger emoji.
