The First Indian Model on Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue: Sonia Dara

This 5’11” beauty from India (who has been signed by Elite Models) is the first South Asian woman to be featured on the pages of Sports Illustrated.

What makes this even cooler is that this 20 year old model is also a Sophomore at Harvard.

Fashion Icon Alexander Mcqueen Dies

Heard the sad news today that British fashion designer and icon Alexander Mcqueen died today after committing suicide. Sources say he hanged himself.

His death comes a few days after his mother’s death and a few years after his close friend Isabella Blow’s death (who also killed herself).

Mcqueen was a talented and legendary fashion icon who has contributed a lot to the world of style.

My thoughts and prayers go out to his friends and family.

It’s very refreshing to J Crew diversify their brand by using a South Asian model.

First New York & Company, now J Crew… GO LAKSHMI ! 🙂
