MUMBAI: An Indian shortlisted as the world’s next Swimsuit Superstar is now a reality! The only Indian model to be selected and shortlisted amongst a bevy of international models - svelte and sensuous Smriti Subs has been crowned as World Swimsuit Model of the Week (in the week of 23rd April 2018) – an online talent hunt platform sponsored by gaming major Supabets. In addition to being ‘super sexy in a millennial way’, the bold and beautiful Smriti beat several top swimsuit contenders as she clearly stands out from the rest of the pack due to her brown eyes and an extremely photogenic and versatile face. With her sharp, chiseled features, the sizzling lass can pass off as a luscious Latin American lass in one picture and an alluring Asian in another.
Glam doll Smriti said, “Emerging as World Swimsuit Model of the Week in the fact of intense international competition is a huge accomplishment! I am looking forward to winning the grand finale of World Swimsuit 2018 by Supabets as it will open doors for me with respect to several international assignments and opportunities. I have a naturally lean body and thanks to sports and fitness, I ensure that I stay fit and in shape. I also want to show the world that Indian Swimsuit Models have the discipline, commitment and professionalism to make it big on the global stage.”
Sensual and photogenic, Smriti has worked with some of the leading Indian and international photographers across the country. The Life Style Journalist Magazine featured her in their October 2017 issue "Destined to Model". She has also featured in Vogue and Elle India (digital). Smriti made waves as one of the finalists at the prestigious Femina Style Diva 2015. Since then, she has modelled for all the leading fashion weeks in India including Lakme Fashion Week, Amazon India Fashion Week, India Beach Fashion Week, etc. The leading designers that she has modelled for include: Vikram Phadnis, Pria Kataria Puri, Falguni & Shane Peacock, Rebecca Dewan to name a few.
In fact, her penchant for being different ensured that Smriti is the only model to ever feature on the IIT magazine (Insight IIT). Smriti was one of the faces of Araaish 2018 – a multimedia campaign that straddled across platforms. At present, she is one of the brand ambassadors of Bling Vine Jewellery. First scouted when she was just 13, Smriti refused to take up modelling as she was way too young and had no interest whatsoever in being a model. However, she was rediscovered again when in college and soon realised that she was destined to be a model. She shuffled between Bengaluru and Mumbai making the most of both worlds. Her qualities include a personality that stands out confidence, great body language, talent, mental strength and good looks. She adores the stunning outfits that models get to wear and bring them to life in her own unique style.
She loves the heady feeling of being on the runway. And yes she loves going to exotic destinations and locations, which are part and parcel of a model's job. She loves meeting new people - designers, choreographers, stylists, photographers, magazine crews, channel staff and others. Gone are the days when models naturally transition into actors, she says, adding that today acting is a completely different ballgame. So there are models who are focused on modeling and then there are those who can manage both. To each their own but Smriti sure can manage both with aplomb! And the world is her stage!
