A French comedian crashed Chanel’s Spring-Summer 2020 runway show at Paris Fashion Week, but Gigi Hadid managed to confront her and escort her offstage.

Marie S'Infiltre, whose real name is Marie Benoliel, managed to evade security guards and scramble onto the runway, which was designed to look like the rooftops of Paris. She has about 230,000 subscribers on YouTube

Footage posted by Dazed Fashion on Instagram show Hadid approaching Benoliel and ushering her away. It’s not Benoliel’s first gate-crash; last week, she showed up at Etam’s runway show wearing metallic underwear. In 2017, she appeared on the Cannes Film Festival red carpet, with the words "seeking role" and a phone number written on her back.

In a statement sent to CNN, a spokesperson for Chanel said: "This person is a comedian known for this type of prank. She had crashed another runway recently. Her presence on the catwalk was not planned. Security guards simply led her to the exit at the end of the show."
