Orange Crush

May 14th, 2009 Posted by Janelle comments (33)

Lakshmi Menon is one of the few South Asian faces in high fashion and her unique beauty coupled the dynamic force she brings to every picture have made her a star at home and abroad. As the only model to ever snag an only girl cover of Vogue India Lakshmi stands out as being both an enigmatic model and an incredible representative of Indian fashion. This month Lakshmi graces her 3rd Vogue India cover and stars in a special editorial devoted to her status as a post-millenial supermodel. Joined by newcomers Preeti Dhata and Miriam Ilorah as she dances across white sands looking ravishing Lakshmi is an absolute knockout. Makes you wonder just why there are so few Indian faces within the industry.

    She’s too beautiful for words! and as a model she looks just as wonderful with a more commercial look and an edgy couture style.

    Beautiful…but what did they do her skin….give her the beyonce l’oreal treatment? Her skin is dark and beautiful. I’ll just assume it’s the lighting.

    is that an indian lara stone in an orange dress on the last picture?

    anyhow, the fashion industry is bullshit when it comes to diversity. There may be black models here and there, but they’re only present because it’s the popular thing to do…

    It’s really ironic that they claim fashion is about difference and originality, yet these ideas do not diffuse on the models they employ.

    If it wasn’t for vogue india, I don’t know what would have happened to Lakshmi. Such a great model on the loose, undemanded, is really shameful.

    a great question to dissert: “Is the fashion race intolerent?”
    yes/But no/but Yes/absolutely No/not a bit

    I just heard about Lakshmi around the time Sessilee and Arlenis blew up with the Black Italian Vogue. And I think around that time I didn’t even notice her. Until I stumbled across her photos from here at and I have to say she is simply gorgeous. I love the fact that she’s Indian and highly educated (I saw her video from here). And the fact that she is not as young (not saying she’s old but you know, industry standards, etc). I almost mistaked her for Adriana Lima on that cover. That is a good thing though. She is very unique and I cannot wait to see her hit more editorals and campaigns here in the American market. Love her.

    Beautiful Beauty she’s so timeless !

  25. Alana says:

  26. vikturjavier says:

    Hey Daniel,

    Me too! I had to look at the cover twice to make sure it was Lakshmi and not Adriana. Love it when that happens
