Gigi Hadid Suffers a Wardrobe Malfunction With Her Shoes at NY Fashion Week

When supermodel Gigi Hadid walked in the Marc Jacobs spring ’20 show on Wednesday during New York Fashion Week, curiously, she was the only one who had no shoes.

The 24-year-old, instead, glided through the makeshift runway in the warehouse location barefoot on her tippy-toes, as if she were wearing high heels. While many assumed this was intentional, given the whimsical nature of Jacobs’ show this season, it turns out this reflected a major wardrobe malfunction.

During the first round, Hadid walked the runway in high heels. They were white leather clogs with a tall wooden block heel and stud detailing, accented with pale silver over-the-knee socks.

Stylist Katie Grand explained in an Instagram post today that in between the model’s first entrance and her second walkthrough, the heel of one shoe broke. “Since we were at the other end of the armoury, there wasn’t much we could do other than either fake an [unbroken] heel or rip off her socks and shoes and send her out barefoot, which we did, and [it] was all the more natural for it,” said Grand in her caption.

She attached a video where Hadid can be seen strutting shoeless after the malfunction.

Gigi’s younger sister, Bella, also walked in the show and shared a video of the two at their fitting on Instagram. In the clip, you can see Gigi pulling up the socks, with a little help from Jacobs himself.
