The former Miss Commonwealth Asia Pacific 2016 from Kangra, Himachal Pradesh was 21 when she represented India at the global stage.

Daughter of an Army officer, she was one of the front runners in MTV India's Next Top Model 2017, a television reality show.

Besides modelling, she's also a tarot card reader.

The Kerala born beauty picked modelling much against the choice of her parents.

She moved to Pune, pursued shoots and went on to walk the ramp for Pune Times Fashion Week.

While she's excited to walk for Lakme, her biggest dream is to be a Victoria's Secret model.

The international model is one of the most experienced talents to watch out for this season.

From Moscow to Belgium, France and China, Katerina has walked for some of the best and upcoming designers from across the world.

Her Asian features have made her a homegrown face for traditional Indian wear and contemporary labels.

This dusky Indian girl is not your typical runway model.

Before she made her mark in Lakme, she was featured in Harper's Bazaar magazine's November issue where she spoke about diversity, body positivity and freedom.
