What has been your favorite look this season?
I loved all of Derek Lam's collection. It was feel-good, bold and colorful, and the navy blue crepe blouse and the floral high waisted skirt were my favorites. I also adored my little red dress at Jason Wu.

What are your must-haves when prepping for a show?
Water, Blackberry, iPod, music by Kings of Convenience and a good book.

You're one of the few Indian models working internationally --
It's sad. I am very grateful to Riccardo Tisci and Jean Paul Gaultier who really gave me my first real break to be a part of the western fashion industry. I wish there were more Indian girls in international fashion. Hopefully, that will all change with India and other Southeast Asian economies becoming new, emerging markets.

There are a lot of talented fashion designers out of India these days. Which ones stand out in your mind?
I'm very fond of Savio Jon, Rajesh Pratap Singh and Hidden Harmony!

What other career plans do you have?
If I weren't modeling, I would pursue my masters in developmental sociology.

What is the first thing you do to unwind after a show?
Take a warm bath and get a good night's rest.
