Model Crush Monday - Supermodel Lakshmi Menon

“She’s dusky, flawless, and the true face of beauty”  Prabuddha Dasgupta

When it comes to exotic Asian supermodels Lakshmi Menon is the top of the list.  Born in Kerala, India in 1981, Lakshmi was scouted while studying at university in Bangalore.  After modeling for two years in India she was brought to Paris by Jean Paul Gaulthier to walk in his runway show, which led to campaigns for Hermes, and Max Mara and Givenchy.  High street brands like J. Crew and H&M quickly followed suit as she became one of the only Indian models to ever garner campaigns for both high fashion clients and mainstream.

Lakshmi's femininity and sensuality supersede her exotic beauty making her a favorite of fashion editors and photographers.  She was the first Indian model to appear in the Pirelli Calendar, in the 2011 edition photographed by Karl Lagerfeld.  In her decade-long career she has shot editorial and covers for international editions of Vogue, Elle, Bazaar, and in V Magazine, Dazed and Confused, and Allure.  She has ushered in a new era whereby exotic models from all over the world are gradually appearing more frequently on runways and in editorials and advertising.  It is so long overdue. Beauty is beauty and should be celebrated.

Model Crush Monday – Natalia Vodianova, aka Supernova!

Natalia Vodianova is one of those rare models who continues to rank amongst the top international supermodels year after year since she first broke into the modeling world at age seventeen.  Born and raised in Gorky, Russia, Natalia famously sold fruit at a market stall to support her single mom and two half sisters, one afflicted with cerebral palsy before joining a modeling agency at age seventeen. Now age 34 and the mother of five children, Natalia is the founder “Naked Heart Foundation” a charity that creates play areas for Russian children in urban areas, and provides support for families raising kids with disabilities.  Her famous “Love Ball”, a star-studded fashion world event raises funds to support the cause which has now opened over 90 playgrounds in Russia.  Her newest endeavor goes hand in hand with her charity projects, the new Elbi app with a “love button” that allows users to easily connect and donate to various charities worldwide. 

Famous for her almost decade-long contract with Calvin Klein for jeans, lingerie, and the fragrance Euphoria, Natalia has appeared in some of the raciest of the brand's advertisements.  She has graced over seventy international Vogue covers, walked in over 400 runway shows, has been featured in four different Pirelli calendars, and been the face of brands from Guerlain, to Stella McCartney, to Moschino, to Theory.  She was reported to have made 8.6 million dollars in 2012 alone. 

A model with a heart and a true purpose to make the world a better place is compelling enough, if she wasn’t one of the most beautiful, versatile, and inspiring models in the business.  It doesn’t hurt that even after five children she looks young and fresh and just as intriguing as ever!
