No one said that LFW's hunt for fresh new faces is going to be an easy task. One of the jury members at this season's (Winter/Festive) audition and fashion choreographer Anu Ahuja thinks that the secret to modelling isn't about being perfect but unique to bag a spot at the main show.

Meanwhile, Malini Agarwal, founder of popular fashion and entertainment portal Miss Malini advices models to be fierce as they walk on the runway and to channel their "inner awesome".

Well as the models gear up to blow the jury away with their deadly gait, we wish them luck and hope they give their best shot today.

Stay tuned to get more updates from LFW auditions.
