She was assaulted by a fan following the Max Mara catwalk show at Milan Fashion Week on Thursday, September 22.
But just hours after the attack, model Gigi Hadid seemed to have put the harrowing incident behind her, showing no signs of distress as she floated down the Fendi Spring-Summer 17 catwalk looking cool, calm and collected.
The 21-year-old runway pro flashed her bare breast in a sheer floral dress alongside her younger sister Bella Hadid.
On Thursday, while exiting the Max Mara show with her sister Bella, Gigi got a taste of the dark side of adoration as it appears a male stranger managed to come up behind her and grab her.

In a series of paparazzi photos, the model and her stylish sister exit the building amongst a swarm of people, slowly making their way towards their awaiting car.
But as Gigi broke through the throng, it seems a young man somehow managed to evade her security guards and sneak up behind her, grabbing her around the waist, lifting her into the air, and groping her from behind.
But the model proved she’s no damsel in distress, as she got to unleash a few of the powerhouse boxing moves she’s mastered, freeing herself from her attacker’s grasp with a kick and an elbow to the head.
In the shots, Hadid looks unscathed, though visibly shaken, appearing to share some choice words with her security team for allowing this whole series of events to transpire.
The model also talked briefly about the experience on Twitter, defending her actions and writing:
