Work it, working girl!

Ashley Dupre, the infamous call girl who took down "Luv Gov" Eliot Spitzer, strutted her stuff on the catwalk during a green fashion show at Fashion Week yesterday.

The curvy brunette paraded down the runway during the Bahar Shahpar fashion show in a body-hugging high-waisted gray skirt, a matching clingy top and electric blue heels as part of the GreenShows, reported ecouterre.com

"Everyone likes an underdog story, and everyone likes a comeback," the ex-hooker told the New York Post earlier this week. "I'm the poster child for redemption."

The former escort has been recording music, trying to get a record deal and working on a book, the paper reported.

"I didn't ask for it, but now that I have it, it's up to me to take advantage of this platform and do something amazing. I have a voice now," she told The Post.

As for fashion, it's not the first time the former street walker was spotted at the catwalk during Fashion Week. Designer Yigal Azrouel fumed when the ex-hooker was seated in the front row of his Fall/Winter 2009 runway show and fired his PR firm, People's Revolution.

"I didn't invite her, but I wasn't going to kick her out or turn her away. We know one another, we're friends," People's Revolution founder Kelly Cutrone told the New York Daily News last February.
