Former Teen Prostitute Zahia Dehar Launches a Lingerie Line at Paris Couture Week
(Pacific Coast News) Zahia Dehar stepping onto the runway at her debut lingerie show
Four years ago, when Zahia Dehar was only 16, she worked as an underage prostitute, sleeping with three French soccer players for £2,000 a night—a story that later came to light and became one of the biggest European sports sex scandals in recent memory.
Yesterday, at the ripe old age of 20, Zahia walked the runway at the debut show of her lingerie collection during Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week. She's definitely come a long way!
Check out some of the photos from the Zahia show here:
The new Zahia lingerie collection was a diverse mix of ultra-racy styles—see the pasties, above left—and more elegant lacy numbers.
There were plenty of intricately pleated bras and panties, some elaborate necklines, and even a tutu.
There were even gowns and lingerie-inspired dresses.
What do you think about the Zahia collection? Would you ever buy it? How do you feel about a former child prostitute designing lingerie? Does that influence your purchasing decisions?
