Models, designers, editors, and stylists across the world can congratulate themselves, for the Spring 2018 season has finally drawn to a close. No one is celebrating more than the hardest-working models, who took to Instagram to express their gratitude for their collaborators and teams and to hint at how they’d be unwinding after the last of the Paris shows had filed backstage, and after the last of the designers had taken their final laps of the runway. Gigi Hadid ordered sushi and Maria Borges hopped on a Ducati before making her way to Lisbon, Portugal; ’90s supers Cindy Crawford and Claudia Schiffer hopped on jet planes home after a triumphant return to fashion month; and Bella Hadid, Duckie Thot, and Emily Ratajkowski immediately got back to work. See how some of the most followed and most coveted models of fashion month crossed the finish line—what they’re eating and how they’re flying—here.

Maria Borges kept it simple in the caption, writing “À bientôt” with the French tricolor flag. In her photo, though, she lounges in a leather ensemble on a red Ducati. A flex, honestly.

Big up’s @rimowa for getting me and all my tings back in one piece.”

Kaia Gerber’s last show of Paris Fashion Week was Miu Miu—so her farewell post to fashion month got a little punny. “MIU MIU… and that’s a wrap!” she wrote.
