The Beauty from Bangalore.

Following models is something that I do. I memorize their names, their physical statistics, their campaigns, their editorials. I do it because, well, beauty is inspiring. I know, I know -- sappy much? Maybe. But let's take the stunning Lakshmi Menon as an example shall we...

How can you not look at her and think, "Damn. Now that is a beautiful woman." This Indian stunner, born in 1981, is, by fashion industry standards, old for modeling. Yet, she's the "It" model of the moment, booking jobs for such renowned fashion bibles as Vogue and L'Officiel.

But beauty is beauty, regardless of one's age, skin colour, status, or height. It doesn't hurt though that Lakshmi's got it all. A breathtaking face? Check. A slammin' body? Mhm. Regality? Without a doubt. Poise and maturity? Undeniably. The list goes on and on.

Lakshmi began modelling at the age of 25. Her first major booking was the 2007 ad campaign for Swatch. Next she landed the cover of Vogue India's premier issue. From there she skyrocketed to supermodel status, booking an unprecedented amount of coveted editorials, fashion campaigns, and covers.

If you want to learn more about and see more of Lakshmi Menon, just google her or visit her agency's website, Ford Models. And grab this month's copy for US Vogue to see her in an editorial entitled "India Are We" photographed by Mikael Jansson.
