Not wanting to stand out, the beauty picked out a black hoodie with gold lettering and a 'G' embossed on the front.

Gigi was noticeably happy and relaxed, allowing her stepped-up security to keep her safe in a large and unpredictable crowd.

It's been just over a month since Gigi was forcibly lifted by a serial prankster who attacked her outside a fashion show during Milan Fashion Week.
In the days that followed it was quickly revealed that Gigi would not fire her security team.
A source explained to TMZ that they thought the man was a pal at the time.
Her bodyguards pulled her back from the man instead of chasing after him, causing many to feel they did more harm than good.
