Dylan Mulvaney wants her haters to know that she ain't dead yet -- in fact, she's been hitting the catwalk.

Just a day after expressing her ambitions to star in a Super Bowl beer advertisement, the 26-year-old transgender social media star has made yet another statement - but this time, it was on the New York Fashion Week runway.

Showcasing designers David and Phillipe Blond's Spring-Summer 2024 creations, Mulvaney was the epitome of glamor and defiance as she walked the runway in a light blue dress that shimmered under the spotlight.

Mulvaney added a dash of edge to her runway look, pairing a black tank top with leather shorts. As if that wasn't enough to command attention, she completed her look with show-stopping glittery platform heels.

In another look, Mulvaney donned a sparkly low-cut dress and powered down the runway. In fact, she took to Instagram to show off the look, hilariously including a screenshot of a message in which she clapped back at a troll who had asked her: "Are you dead yet?"

To which, she replied: "No I'm modeling."

In response to the video, Mulvaney's fans took to the comments section to voice their support for the star, with one person writing: "I’m mean I’m dead after watching that walk."

A second added: "When you make those kinds of people angry, you know you're changing the world for the better."

"You absolutely nailed that outfit," a third wrote, with a forth supporter adding: "Shaking and trembling trying not to say mother."

After exiting the runway, Mulvaney was seen mingling with A-listers including Queer Eye icon Jonathan Van Ness and renowned model Dominique Jackson.

Dylan Mulvaney's NYFW appearance is particularly intriguing considering her recent headlines.

Just 24 hours before strutting down the runway, she sat down with The Cut to discuss her future ambitions. "Maybe it'd be epic … if in like 10 years I got to do a beer commercial for a Super Bowl," she candidly revealed.

The ambitious goal comes months after her partnership with Bud Light, which sent ripples through social media and cost Anheuser-Busch a staggering $27 billion in market capitalization following extensive boycotts.

The Bud Light controversy served as a monumental learning curve for the influencer. Discussing the turmoil, Mulvaney described it as a "huge wake-up call," conceding that she was naive about the scrutiny she'd face as a trans woman in the public sphere.

"I think that some trans elders probably looked at me this last year and were like, 'B**ch. You have so far to go.' I think they probably saw what has happened to me these last few months coming," she remarked. Mulvaney admits, “This was a good wake-up call for me. Now I'm a more realistic person."

Regardless of past controversies, Mulvaney's New York Fashion Week appearance indicates that she isn't going anywhere anytime soon. With a renewed sense of perspective, she seems poised for a comeback, or perhaps more aptly, a continuation of her ever-evolving story.

Only time will tell if her dream of starring in a Super Bowl beer commercial will come to fruition.
