Video posted online from Paris Fashion Week on Tuesday shows the woman jumping up on the runway in a gap between the models, then quickly assuming a catwalk strut to blend in.
She’s shown wearing a black-and-white Chanel-style outfit, much like the models in the show, which took place on a set designed to look like city rooftops.
Audience members can be heard grumbling and giggling during the stunt.
But Gigi Hadid wasn’t laughing. The American supermodel interrupted the catwalk trespasser’s moment of glory, stepping in front of her and then guiding her off the stage with one arm over her shoulder.
Several models later stepped in to prevent the woman from joining them backstage.
The woman has been identified as Marie Benoliel, a.k.a. Marie S’Infiltre — or “infiltrator” — a comedian well-known for performing stunts and posting them on her YouTube page.
S’Infiltre has a show opening in Paris this week, and her Instagram page shows several photos of her crashing Paris Fashion Week to promote her work.
She posted a photo of her awkward encounter with Hadid on Instagram on Tuesday.
Infiltrator’s gonna infiltrate.
