French Teen Prostitute Becomes Fashion Icon

The New York Post ran a story last week about Zahia Dehar's much anticipated "ultra-sexy, uber-expensive" lingerie line that is backed by fashion luminaries Christian Louboutin, Jean Paul Gaultier and Christian Lacroix. Karl Lagerfeld even "hailed" Zahia as the new Coco Chanel. 

But what lead me to do a Google search about Zahia is a 2010 article in the Daily Mail about Zahia's job as a high priced teen prostitute who had sex with three European soccer stars about whom she declared, ‘I loved them all.’

Zahia worked at the Café Zaman, a notorious brothel on the Champs Elysee. Ironically, prostitution is legal in France, the age of consent is 15 there, but it's illegal to have sex with a prostitute who is under 18-years-old.
