Which It model removed a prankster from Chanel's runway?

Correct! Wrong!

Models were busy walking the finale of Chanel’s Spring 2020 show today when a woman dressed in tweed jumped on the runway and joined them.

The result is the the Instapump Fury Boost™ sneaker, which drops in Japan later this month and will be available worldwide in November and December.
