Model Diaries: Archana Akil Kumar

She has graced the covers of several fashion magazines — her most recent conquest being the December 2013 edition of ELLE. It just happens to be the fashion tome’s 17th Anniversary Issue in India and it’s another feather in this femme fatale’s couture cap. With her lithe frame, smouldering olive complexion and fantastic figure, one look at Archana will stop you in your tracks.

The LIVEINSTYLE.COM team sat down with this beautiful Bangalore girl at Signature International Fashion Weekend 2013 in Mumbai, to talk about pick-up lines and her perfect skin...

On her fitness regime

“I work out every day, except for Sunday. I used to be a basketball and field hockey player before I entered the world of modelling. Now though, apart from exercising, I only indulge in swimming.”

On the SIFW 2013 designer she’ll wear in real life

“Nachiket Barve tops my list!”

On the worst pick-up line she has ever heard

“No one has ever used a pick-up line on me. People usually perceive me to be very snobbish and not very approachable.”

On her dream date

“I don’t have anyone in mind at the moment…”

On the model-turned-actress she admires

“Deepika Padukone.”

On her professional ‘Signature’ moment

“The day I won the Debut Model of the Year for Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week.”

Her beauty secret

“Always keep your face hydrated.”
