The "I'm Out" singer, 28 — who has been posting countless Instagram shots from her chic PFW stay – was posing for photos on the white carpet when Sediuk appeared behind her. He quickly shed his coat and stripped down to just a black and gold sequined shirt and a black thong, revealing the word "Chanel" painted on his right thigh in white paint.

Within seconds, he was hugging Ciara, who looked visibly puzzled by the encounter but nevertheless seemed to maintain her composure. Photographers continued to snap away, some with their mouths agape at what had just transpired.

This is the second time in the last week that Sediuk has made headlines for one of his Fashion Week pranks. Last Thursday, Sept. 25, he nearly toppled Ciara's close friend Kim Kardashian as she and husband Kanye West arrived at the Balmain runway show. 

"I had a feeling that Kim would show up there because she is friends with the designer of Balmain," the 25-year-old Ukraine journalist explained to The Hollywood Reporter. "I basically came there just for them. I knew they were going to be the biggest guest of the night." 

He added that he has no malicious intent when he pulls the stunts. "I like the show business world. But it's obviously not my intention to offend someone. It looks like I'm a monster, but I'm a normal guy. Well, what I'm doing isn't normal — but I don't have bad intentions," he told THR. "I'm already banned in America. I could be banned in the European Union next. I hope I will not be."
