We all knew Zahia Dehar has loved lingerie for quite some time now. Just look at the twitpic (above) she tweeted nearly a year ago!!
But of course, she probably fell in love with it when French football stars were paying her thousands to sleep with the then under-aged prostitute.
And now the prostitute turned model is in charge of a line all her own. A line to debut right in the middle of Paris Fashion Week!!! Talk about life transformations, LOL!
François Tamarin, Bruno Legeron, and Jean-Pierre Ollier have all worked on designing the pieces, but she become most excited upon learning Mr. Chanel himself would be photographing her in the lingerie.
Karl Lagerfeld seemed to enjoy his experience with her, saying:
She's very French courtesan, like Liane de Pougy or the Belle Otéro. [The photos are] very, very funny, like Vargas pinups. It was fun to do her. [But] I have nothing to do with [the designs of] her collection.
Wow!! To have Karl on board… that is saying something!! We like how he made sure to note he definitely didn't design the lingerie, though. The pieces are going to very interesting to see, that's for sure!!
