From an underage call girl to a successful couture lingerie designer, Zahia Dehar has come a long way. Here, we bring you glimpses of the 20-year-old French Moroccan beauty's recent fashion show at Paris Couture Week.

Two years ago, she was an 18-year-old French Moroccan prostitute embroiled in a sex scandal that rocked France and the world.

But Zahia Dehar has come a long way since then, turning her life around by using her notoriety and eye for sensual innerwear to create a luxury lingerie brand that has impressed fashionistas everywhere.

The 20-year-old former call girl, whose alleged trysts with three famous French footballers while she was underage made headlines in 2010, has closed that sordid chapter in her life and reinvented herself as a part of Paris' couture scene.

After a stint as a lingerie model, appearing on the covers of Vanity Fair Italy and other prominent publications, Zahia managed to draw the attention of Karl Lagerfeld, creative director of Chanel. So fascinated was the veteran couturier with her story that he photographed her debut look book himself and she has successfully found her footing in fashion since.

In the following pages, we bring you a look at Zahia's latest collection straight from the runway of Paris; the blonde beauty opened the show herself, wearing a daring see-through bridal number.
