Designer Daily: Zahia Dehar
Jan 25, 2012 - by Amanda Gabriele
Zahia Dehar isn't your average, run-of-the-mill lingerie designer. In fact, she didn't even begin her career in the fashion world; her name hit the spotlight when it was revealed she was a former underage prostitute. After claiming three French football stars had sex with her while younger than 18, her luck transformed. Not only did she launch own lingerie line with help from some of France's greatest couturiers including François Tamarin, Bruno Legeron and Jean-Pierre Ollier, she's been photographed modeling the collection by a range of talented artists. Karl Lagerfeld himself got behind the lens, saying it was fun to work with her, "like Vargas pinups." The below collection was shot by Alix Malka for Vanity Fair - see the spread after the jump.
