An Afghan model walks wearing a dress creation by Shahar Banoo Zeerak, a dress designer, model and organizer of a fashion show in Kabul, Afghanistan, Friday, Feb. 8, 2013. Afghan models paraded down a candle-lined catwalk as men and women watch from the audience in a restaurant off a muddy street in Kabul.
