In times of trouble, you have to think on your feet. That's exactly what Gigi Hadid did on Wednesday, during the Marc Jacobs Spring 2020 Runway Show at Park Avenue Armory.
Apparently, her barefoot walk down the runway was not a planned part of the show, stylist Katie Grand recently revealed in an Instagram post.
"Now there is a little story to go with this clip," Grand captioned a video she posted earlier today. "In the first opening 'finale' of Marc's show Gigi's heel broke - if you see images from the first passage she has thigh high silver socks and white leather mules, and since we were at the other end of the armory 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, and was all the more natural for it."

The stint, thankfully, worked seamlessly and to little fanfare. Hardly anyone online noticed the mysterious disappearance of the thigh-high socks and mules.
Grand additionally wrote, "Gigi and all the people from the show thank you all so much for being so patient, beautiful and inspiring and also Stephen Galloway for your fantastic choreography."
The last time Gigi lost a shoe on a runway (opens in new tab) was in 2017 during Anna Sui's show. That time, however, she had little sis Bella Hadid to help her down the catwalk.
