Introducing Zahia: A Modern Cortesan & Lingerie Designer

“I don’t like standard beauty – there is no beauty without strangeness.” -Karl Lagerfeld

Thank you to the, for the following post:

"Who is France’s hottest new couture lingerie designer? None other than Zahia Dehar, Karl Lagerfeld’s 20-year-old muse and protege who used to be an underage escort in Paris.
When news broke that he allegedly had flown a then-17 Dehar to Germany for a liaison, it sparked one of biggest sex scandals to hit the French sports world.
