Deepti Gujral is not your garden-variety fashion model. She's a Supermodel.
Deepti drew the attention of India's top designers by winning the Gladrags Mega Model contest in 2003.
Fast forward to the present, be it Lakme Fashion Week or FDCI India Couture Week or any other do: This lovely is one of the faces dominating Indian ramps with her compelling brown eyes that 'have a language of their own'.
She moves with characteristic liquid grace and ease -- whether in Western wear or Indian ethnic thread -- that many a designer would happily chuck the sometimes difficult celeb showstopper and just have her as their muse.

In a Rediff.com interview
, she said: "As a model, when you walk the ramp, you need to get into designs created by designers and look like a million bucks."Photographs: Kind courtesy Deepti Gujral/Instagram

So are those luscious lips. The incredible figure. And the unapologetic attitude. Deepti is a complete package.
