Chapman showed up during designers Shiyan & Rudkovskaya runway show Sunday wearing a fur jacket and black leather pants, and posed holding a gun to Russian pop singer Dima Bilan's head.

According to the UK's Daily Mail, the gun was not a toy and very much a real weapon.  She reportedly dropped it when she made her debut on the catwalk. 

The fashion shows in Moscow continued over a span of six days with top designers, including Yana Stasia, Dasha Gauser and Elena Souproun, showcasing their Fall/Winter 2011-2012 collections at the Congress Hall.

The season's designs encompassed everything from casual chic to classic silhouettes. Designers also embraced bright colors in many of their collections - a perfect match to the lively performances on the runway.
