Gigi Hadid can make anything look fashionable, whether she’s rocking a t-shirt and blazer combo, luxury dad sneakers, or donning a literal cape in the middle of the street. Simultaneously, she makes the absence of clothing just as glamorous, as proven during the recent Marc Jacobs Spring 2020 Runway Show when she walked the runway without any shoes at all.
As noted by stylist Katie Grand on Instagram, Gigi had to think quickly when she experienced a bit of a wardrobe malfunction on Wednesday, September 11. She had been wearing silver thigh-high socks (to match the dress and hat she sported on the runway) and white leather mules, but when her heel broke mid-show, the model was left with very little options. “There wasn't much we could do other than either fake a non broken heel or rip off her socks and shoes and send her out barefoot, which we did,” Katie wrote alongside a video that captured the runway moment.
In the clip, we see Gigi strutting down the runway completely barefoot — looking just as glam as she did with her socks and heels. In fact, the no-shoes factor added a beachy, casual vibe to the entire look, and it’s making us already nostalgic for summer afternoons of the past.
Gigi also shared pictures from the show on Instagram, noting that “sometimes a lil wardrobe malfunction can lead to the magic moments.” The model also expressed her gratitude for being involved in the event, writing: “I love you @themarcjacobs @kegrand; experiencing your creative ride is surreal, inspiring, and joyful. I am so grateful for time spent with you, and I will always cherish these memories.”
Of course, as an A-list model, Gigi is no stranger to handling wardrobe malfunctions like a pro. Back in 2016, Gigi kept her head high after a strap broke on her bustier during the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, and she walked the Anna Sui runway in 2017 with just one shoe after losing the other, Cinderella style. Gigi could easily teach a master class in turning any “oops!” moment into a stylish one instead. We have no choice but to stan!
