Career

Lakshmi Menon (model) Lakshmi Menon Zimbio

She took up modelling to earn money while studying for a degree in sociology at the Bangalore University. A modeling scout approached her and told her she had the height [Menon is 1.8 meters, or 5 feet, 10 inches] to get some ad work. She started modeling full-time after college, but although she worked in India for several years, she says "I never had much success since all the big ad campaigns featured Bollywood starlets". After modelling in India for several years, she began her international career in 2006 after Jean Paul Gaultier saw her work in an Indian magazine while looking for an Indian model to walk in his Chanel show in Paris. A show for Jean Paul Gaultier was followed by work on the Hermès catwalk and campaigns for Hermès, Max Mara, Givenchy, H&M, J Crew, Bergdorf Goodman, Bloomingdales, Neiman Marcus, and Nordstrom.
