Meet the Comedian Who Crashed the Chanel Catwalk

She crashed Chanel's runway during Paris Fashion Week and was booted off the catwalk by Gigi Hadid. This is French comedian Marie S'Infiltre — and Brut interviewed her about the viral prank.

The comedian is known for this type of prank

French comedian, she tells us how she managed to crash a Chanel catwalk. Marie Benoliel, known as Marie S'Infiltre to her 200,000 Instagram followers, jumped onto the runway while wearing a black-and-white tweed suit and hat. After she finished the walk, model Gigi Hadid confronted her and escorted her off stage by placing her hand on Benoliel's shoulder. Video footage also shows two men in black walking through the crowd to track her down. Benoliel also crashed Etam's lingerie show during Paris Fashion Week but wrote on Instagram that she wanted to take on a more difficult target.

Sister Bella Hadid posted on Instagram that Gigi's move was "iconic." Fashion editor and Chanel collaborator Carine Roitfeld wrote, "Gigi saves the finale of the Chanel show from a catwalk crasher!" However, people were not happy the 28-year-old comedian. One person wrote, “You have no respect for other’s hard work. Hope someday you have the respect for other’s effort. You’re ridiculous,” while another wrote, “Wow. This is tacky AF. LMAO.” A third person chimed in, writing, “I’m sorry, but is this supposed to be funny?”

Marie tried to blend in, but ultimately, two men in black walked through the crowd to track her down. Gigi, 24, was the one to take her off the stage, as she appeared to speak to her angrily and placed a hand on her shoulder. Despite the drama, the show was a success as Hollywood A-listers including Anna Wintour and Cardi B looked on. Benoliel’s YouTube video featuring a mashup of footage from the show includes an advertisement for a one-woman show she’s currently in at the Comedy & Studio of the Champs-Elysées. Hadid did not acknowledge the incident on social media, choosing instead to repost videos without the prankster from the show on her Instagram Story. The official Chanel account also did not speak about the incident but posted a photo of Hadid posing on the rooftop set.

    She became unspeakably rude? Girl you walked onto a catwalk! You’re unspeakably rude. All for a petty “funny” stunt. People forget that modeling is a job. These people are at work. When you involve yourself in a show you are interfering with people’s livelihoods and NOT making any statement besides showing you’re a jerk.

    She just wanted attention and fame. If she seriously wanted to walk the ramp and with fun expression she could hav gone to show authorities and tell her cause and then participate. She shouldn't cover it up by saying it's prank. B*tch please, if you wanna have fashion shows with the concept you want, go conduct your own fashion show and invest your own money in it!

    Just the fact that it took these models blood, sweat and tears to get to where they are and for someone to just crash the show like that is just beyond disrespectful. I'd be livid too if I was one of the models. 🙄

    All these serious comments are proving her point. I laughed because it was funny. That model that she jumped in front of was like “wtf...it cool tho” Y’all in the comments saying the attention would be taken away from the clothes and that it’s supposed to be a certain way. Bro they don’t even fuckin smiiile. And yeah, models and the fashion world will take themselves way too seriously bc high society takes themselves way to fuckin seriously 😂 And what do most people strive for? To be in that high society club for god knows why. To me, success is to love and never stop laughing no matter how old or rich u are. Not to showcase wtf I OWN or what I can GET. -“If you are what you have, then end up with nothing, who are you?”

    Midhula Mohan my thoughts exactly! The lengths she has to go through to sabotage the show. She may think that what she's doing may benefit others but damn. What she did was so wrong in so many levels. And who is she to say that the world of fashion is stoic, unhappy and always dead serious. Dont she really know that it's never about the models personality or the model themselves but the creations that they were wearing that needs to be emphasized. Tbh I don't like 80% of the people who does comedic act when they're on set, but that doesn't give me the right to judge, criticize nor do anything to those people just to make myself better than them. Girl! You need to watch Victorias secret fashion show and take a look at the backstage at other so called "sad shows" you're referring to so that the next time you'll do this, you will know how hard it is to make these events successful and what's at stake for the people who will get reprimanded. And that they don't need your childish and unreasonable antics -_-
