Pictures of a nine-year-old Chinese girl walking along the runway at the Paris Fashion Week have recently gone viral on social media.
最近,一组9岁中国萝莉在巴黎时装周走秀的照片在社交媒体上走红。

Xiuqiu(绣球) is the first Chinese child model(模特) to perform at the annual Paris event, and this is the second trip to Paris Fashion Week(巴黎时装周). Her steady(沉稳的) performance(表演) and temperament(气质) have caught the attention of fashion circles(时尚圈) both in China and around the world.
 
With a name that literally means "embroidered ball"(绣球), Xiuqiu was modelling a collection designed by designer(设计师) Lawrence Xu, whose elegant collection blended traditional Chinese attires(服装) with modern sensibilities(灵感).

Xiu Qiu was dressed in a flowing brocade dress(云锦礼服), for which even the most common variety of fabric would cost around 40,000 yuan ($6,396) per meter, according to Xu.
