The Girls Have It


Lakshmi Menon
Birthday: November 4, 1981
Hometown: Bangalore, India
Agency: Ford, Storm, Nathalie

It’s just over a year since Lakshmi Menon appeared on the first cover of Vogue India, but that sparked a booking frenzy. “Lakshmi Menon has brought the supermodel back,” Vogue India’s Priya Tanna raved. “She is a great combination of earthy and exotic, and her celebrity is clearly on the rise.” Menon was the face of Hermès’ spring 2008 campaign, and then came a blur of spring 2009 runways: Givenchy, Carolina Herrera, Vera Wang, Ralph Lauren, Jean Paul Gaultier, Diane Von Furstenberg, Zac Posen, Ohne Titel, and so on. What makes it even more surprising is her advanced (for a model) age: She’s 27. So far, that hasn’t been a problem.
