Leah Still, daughter of NFL star Devon Still, walked the runway at New York Fashion Week and got a standing ovation from the crowd. The 5-year-old, who has beaten cancer, stunned everyone with her confidence as she strutted on the runway.

Wearing a double denim dress by Levi's and her beautiful smile, the toddler walked the runway on Thursday night’s Haddad Kids Rock! fashion show, which benefitted the Victor Cruz Foundation.

“She was definitely feeling herself with that spin move #NewYorkFashionWeek #LeahStrong#KidsRock,” proud dad Still, 25, wrote on Instagram, while sharing his daughter's runway walk.

Leah looked cute with her designer denim look and bright yellow sandals. She was all smiles as she walked the runway and even took a little twirl to show off her attire. The crowd was left mesmerized by Leah's confidence and bravery.

She also appeared for a second time on the runway, this time wearing a striped Nike top with hot pink leggings. In a long Instagram post, Still thanked the fashion show organizers for giving Leah a chance to walk the runway.

“This fashion show teaches her so much more than just how to be a model which is why I love when she does it,” Still wrote on Instagram, along with Leah's picture. He also shared that it is tough for Leah to undergo many physical changes, such as hair and weight loss, because of her battle with cancer.

“But when I watch her walk down the runway and I see that smile on her face as she is cheered on by the crowd I see a confident side of her that's thinking nothing of those changes,” the proud father said on Instagram.

Still also wrote that the fashion show has taught his daughter to “embrace who she is will stick with her for life!” He also shared that her daughter was so excited that when she came backstage, she told people "I was walking so hard and they loved it.”

In June 2014, Leah was diagnosed with Neuroblastoma stage 4 cancer but the little girl has made a recovery from it over the past year. After undergoing surgeries, Leah is now cancer free. Check out her runway video below.
