On the opening day, Al Zuhair walked for Lebanese designer Georges Hobeika, in an embellished two-tiered skirt of cream and pink, decked in elaborate beadwork and topped with a diaphanous organza shirt in sea blue, with trailing sleeves.

Next was a turn for Giambattista Valli, for which she wore a flamboyant high-low taffeta gown in burnt chocolate.

On day two , Al Zuhair was on the Alexis Mabille runway not once but twice, first in a high-collared white blouse, paired with a high-waisted, floor length skirt, seconded by a rust-coloured, bias-cut, slinky dress.

This she followed with a turn for Giorgio Armani and his fabled Armani Prive show, in which she donned an elegant sequinned tailored jacket, over front-pleat satin trousers, with her hair set as a soft wave.

Celebrating her runway achievements, Al Zuhair posted footage from the Armani Prive event on social media, writing: “Thank you for this magical moment!”

Of her appearance for Georges Hobeika, she wrote on Instagram: "Thank you @georgeshobeika for having me in your Haute Couture Show ... I had an amazing time!"
