Kirstie Alley Kirstie Alley will make her catwalk modeling debut at this year's Fashion Week in New York.

The Cheers star, who shed 90 pounds in a major health overhaul during her recent stint on TV show Dancing With the Stars, will flaunt her new body on the runway for her designer pal Zang Toi's show on Tuesday.

And Alley can't wait to support her longtime friend by donning his clothes for all to see.

She tells Entertainment Tonight, "I've known Zang since 1993. I did the cover of Redbook (magazine) and I wanted something really beautiful... he just has the most beautiful clothes, period."

However, although she's excited about the gig, the actress admits she'll have to take on a much different attitude: "Models sort of more do (sic) what the designer wants them to do and actresses are sort of divas. So I'm going to have to be a model this week."
