Sharma is a rising star in the international fashion circuit

By Drishti Kapadia  February 28th, 2020

As the first Indian model to star in a Balenciaga campaign, 25-year-old Dipti Sharma has broken several barriers pretty early in her career. The Rudrapur, Uttarakhand-born model made her mark on the international runways when she walked for Balenciaga’s spring/summer show three years ago. Since then she has walked for several luxe fashion houses, like Dolce & Gabbana, Oscar de la Renta, Dries van Noten and Alexander Wang. Her bowl cut and chiselled features create an unconventional yet striking beauty on the global runways.So, how has being surrounded by the best in fashion influenced her personal style? “I find inspiration in all the people I meet. I love the ’80s and ’90s style, and you’ll mostly find me wearing oversized shirts, tops, and pants in a chic way,” she says. Read on to know more about the model’s go-to beauty products and the recipe for her morning smoothie.
