Mahira Khan made an appearance on the runway on the final day of PLBW last night, but not as showstopper for a designer.

The Verna actor was announced as the newest celebrity to join L'Oréal Paris' illustrious roster of celebrity spokespersons, making her the first Pakistani to earn that distinction. Mahira is the Official Spokesperson for L'Oréal Paris Hair Care in Pakistan. She joins the ranks of Bollywood stars like Aishwariya Rai and Deepika Padukone as well as international luminaries such as Naomi Watts, Eva Longoria and Helen Mirren.

Wearing an oversized all-white power suit, Mahira took to the PLBW runway and shared a few thoughts, "It gives me great pleasure to be part of this family called L'Oréal Paris. Its spirit, its ethos celebrates women empowerment. It celebrates [their] beauty as well as [their] success. It celebrates their worth...," she said to cheering fashion week attendees.

She continued to roaring applause, "Through life's ups and downs, and the few mistakes we make and all the successes that we get, let nobody, nobody's opinion define who you are. And if anybody defines who you are, let it be yourself. Because including me and all the women out there, we're all worth it!"

What a fitting answer to her recent critics!
