Supermodel Gigi Hadid confronted a gatecrasher at Chanel and US pop star Justin Timberlake was grabbed by a fan as he walked to the Louis Vuitton show later Tuesday, in a wacky final day of Paris fashion week.

The madness began in the day's first show when a prankster walked unchecked onto the Chanel catwalk with the models for the big finale.

French comedian Marie Benoliel ran from her seat and joined the models as they did their last walk along a spectacular set recreating the rooftops of Paris inside the Grand Palais.

With security guards left floundering, Hadid confronted the gatecrasher as she tried to further upstage the models, with the two facing off on the set.

Bodyguards quickly wrenched him off and Timberlake walked on unhurt, but clearly a little shaken, to see fashion week's final collection.

The second security lapse came after a hitherto obscure comic and YouTuber Benoliel, aka Marie S'Infiltre (Marie Sneaks In), managed to steal the limelight from one of the world's richest brands.

Having crashed Etam's lingerie show earlier in Paris fashion week in silver underwear, Benoliel dressed from head to toe in a black and white Chanel-like houndstooth tweed suit and hat to pull off an even bigger stunt.

"Marie S'Infiltre strikes again!" she declared on Instagram after being shown the door.

Guards only realized that she had joined the models when it was too late to intervene.
