Anything can happen during Paris Fashion Week, and this season has been particularly eventful!
Nina Ricci’s S/S 2014 show had a minor runway hiccup on Thursday when two topless protesters from the Ukrainian feminist group Femen stormed the catwalk, screaming and causing ruckus.
One of the models walking the show was NOT amused, and took matters into her own hands when she was grabbed by one of the ladies.
Hollie-May Saker described the situation as follows:
"I could hear screaming behind me. The next thing I just see half-naked women with black marker pen scrawled across their bare chests and that’s when she came at me. As she grabbed my arm she lifted by skirt exposing me – I pulled my arm back with such force that I landed a punch square on her nose. I was so angry but I knew I had to be professional so I carried on walking with a bit of sassiness. My Scouseness came out a bit but I wish it had come out a bit more. Thinking about it now I wish I’d pushed them both off the stage because they ruined my favorite show."
According to the video footage of the disruption, the model was definitely grabbed by one of the feminists but there’s no clear shot of her landing a jab in the nose or anywhere else.
