Model Diaries: Pooja Vaidya

Crisscrossing the country, wearing couture at show after show, this leggy lass is a sight for sore eyes. A sassy, cheerful presence at rehearsals and shows, Pooja Vaidya is the ‘desi’ girl with style and oomph. Between shows at Signature International Fashion Weekend 2013, she stops to tell the LIVEINSTYLE.COM team about her gift from God (she can thank Him for never having to work out!) and a host of other things…

On her fitness regime

“I don’t work out at all! I am blessed with a high metabolic rate, which helps me to keep slim. I used to play basketball in school, but that’s about it.” (We love honest women, we really do!)

On the SIFW 2013 designer she would wear in real life

“I really like Swapnil Shinde’s designs. I think they are out of this world — very geometrical and graphic. Also, I would love to wear Drashta’s clothes. She has some lovely stuff going on.”

On the worst pick-up line anyone has ever used on her

“There are plenty. Right now though, I can’t remember any particular one.”

On her dream date

“Hugh Jackman. Definitely!”

On the model-turned-actor she admires most

“Vidyut Jammwal. He was a model initially and now has transformed into a big star. Having worked with him, I can say that he has earned every bit of his success and thoroughly deserves it.”

On her professional ‘Signature’ moment

“Working with ace choreographers, modelling for well-known designers and just being out there, is a ‘Signature’ moment for me. I am just living life in the present and loving it.”

Her beauty secret

“Drink tons of water. The most important thing is to stay hydrated.”
