Name:
Bhumika Arora

Agency:
Elite Paris (Paris)

Age:
22

Height:
180cm (5’11″)

Place of Origin:
New Delhi, India

Ethnic Origin:
Indian

Birthsign:
Virgo

How discovered:
Thanks to my selfies! I was just having fun with my friends, posting our pictures on social media when I discovered they had landed the fashion column of a monthly magazine, and I was approached by an Indian fashion photographer based in New Delhi: he saw my pictures and insisted to do my portfolio for free. He was very confident, saying I was tall and would work a lot, and could pay him later.

Favorite things:
I love all things creative, that inspire me, feed my imagination, and take me to other realities: fashion, music and food have this tremendous power on me

Favorite music, band:
I like Yo Yo Honey Singh, who’s become a music star in India, but I’m also very eclectic and love to discover new bands thanks to my friends who take me to concerts and festivals, it’s the best feeling in the world.

Favorite movie, tv show:
Favorite movie: I am the big fan of ‘If Only’, even more since I learned that Jennifer Love Hewitt wrote the two songs she performs in the movie. Tv show: this might be due to my love for vintage, but nothing beats ‘Friends’

Favorite designer, fragrance or beauty product:
Favorite designer: there are too many I can’t name just one, but I am very proud and supportive of the new generation of Indian designers, led by fashion stars Manish Arora & Prabal Gurung. Fragrance: I wear ‘For Her’ by Narciso Rodriguez. Beauty product: I couldn’t live without mascara and lipgloss

What would you be doing if you weren’t modeling?
I studied business and found it so interesting, I’d definitely be working as HR manager, to deal with people, I feel like nothing is more complex and fascinating

What’s something uncool that you love anyway?
Don’t tell anybody but I wear casual and comfortable clothes… and worse, I enjoy it!

Favorite modeling experience so far?
Being part of the prestigious Paris Fashion Week was like my dream come true, and the 3 shows I did (Viktor&Rolf, Dries Van Noten and Maxime Simoëns) are the highlights of my life until this day

What’s the best thing about your hometown/country?
Apart from the food? Well, the spices! We have all sorts of spices you can dream of, which make our typical meals so special and unique.

Which brand would you really love to model for?
There are too many and not enough time! But I’m in love with Burberry and Chanel

Place you would love to visit:
I’m crazy about Italy right now, and can’t wait to discover Venice and Milan, I’ll make sure I come back with the best spots for pasta

Currently you’re obsessed with/about:
My job! I can’t get enough of modeling, meeting so many creative minds, traveling the world to create beauty alongside amazingly talented people, who often I can call friends.

    She is stunning but I think if she would grow her eyebrows a little thicker she would be even more of a stunner!

    One of the most gorgeous girls I have laid my eyes on in a long time. Perfect hair, eyes, pout, proportions, EVERYTHING. But I agree that she needs to put those tweezers down and ASAP.

    One word description: WOW!! I how that she has a great career in New York! Now seeing this “Bright Young Thing” on the cover of Vogue USA would make me buy it!

    If you are the model I saw in a Loreal TV commercial tonight, I am very impressed. Your more than just a “another pretty face”. Yes, most definitely you have a bright future. Good luck!

    Breathtaking. The fact that she does not need makeup AT ALL and probably still looks better without it!
