Storm Reid made her runway debut during Miu Miu’s Paris Fashion Week show on Tuesday.
The Euphoria actress opened the Italian fashion house’s fall/winter 2020 presentation at the Palais d’Iena wearing a bronze crushed satin dress and a dark grey tweed overcoat, with her braids shaped into a ’40s updo.
The 16-year-old later took to Instagram to show pictures and video of her walking the runway and expressed her excitement in the caption.
“Wow. Wow. Wow. Today I walked in my first fashion show. Not only did I walk, but I opened the show. In Paris. For @MIUMIU. Insane right?!?” she gushed. “Thank you to the whole @miumiu team and (stylist) @kegrand for not only allowing but trusting me to do this. I always felt like I could walk in a show, and (creative director) @jasonbolden told me to be patient, and I’m so glad I was. We did it J! This is something that will be etched in my mind and heart forever. XO.”
Storm received praise from celebrities in the comments section, with her A Wrinkle in Time co-star Mindy Kaling writing, “Wow wow wow!! You are (fire) Storm!!” and Janelle Monae posting, “Gooooo stormie !!!!!” with a fire emoji.
The star was joined by the likes of models Adut Akech, Gigi Hadid, and Bella Hadid on the runway, while British singer Rita Ora made a surprise catwalk appearance wearing a floor-length military-inspired navy coat.
Rita shared images from her runway moment on Instagram too, and posted, “So your girl gave you a walk today Hunay on this fine Tuesday! Such an honour to walk for you #MucciaPrada @MiuMiu So amazing to work with such an amazing team thank you (sic).”
The 29-year-old is no stranger to strutting her stuff on the catwalk – she has previously appeared in shows for DKNY and Moschino.
