The nation has been cheering for 4-year-old Leah Still to beat cancer, but the daughter of Cincinnati Bengals player Devon Still made headlines for a happier reason Thursday night: her debut on the runway at the New York Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week.
Wearing a puffy vest over a long plaid shirt and leggings, Leah walked the stage with a guitar and a smile, posing with her hand on her hip when she reached the end of the runway at Lincoln Center for Nike Levi's Kids Rock show, according to the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week blog.
"To say Leah rocked the runway would be an understatement," the blogger wrote.
Devon Still gushed on Twitter that Leah was "a natural." He, too, was wearing plaid and a vest, and said Leah was "trying to match [his] style."
Still, 25, a defensive tackle, had originally been cut from the Bengals roster, but once the team learned his daughter had stage 4 cancer, they resigned him to their practice squad. He has since been placed on the active roster.
Leah underwent surgery and chemotherapy after doctors found a cancerous growth in her abdomen in June, according to The Associated Press.
Still announced on his Instagram account that Leah's battle with cancer was not yet over.
