New Muse: Pooja Mor
Say hello to your new role model! Stunning & brilliant Pooja Mor
Résumé: Mor started modeling after winning a contest at university. She moved to New York last year and has worked for Louis Vuitton, Givenchy, Stella McCartney and Alexander McQueen
Modeling Wasn’t My Plan…
I studied engineering and was preparing to do an Mba, and after that I wanted to open an organic vegetarian restaurant in my home town [of Bareilly]. I still want to do it. I’d also like to study in Paris.
My First Big Job... Was for Louis Vuitton. I was cast in the Cruise ’15 show in Palm Springs as soon as I arrived in New York, after their team saw me on Instagram. It was so much fun. Then fashion week came along and it was really hard!
I Use Coconut Oil Everywhere… My hair, my skin, to remove makeup. I massage it into my hair and leave it in for an hour before washing it. I also mix turmeric powder with rose water or milk and use it as a face mask.
My Style Is Very Simple… It’s loose and cool, I just put anything on and go. Mostly it’s white, black and gray, but my Indian closet is full of color – everyone there is bright and enjoying life. I tried to wear color in New York once and everybody stared at me.
I Meditate Every Day… For at least 20 minutes each morning, or an hour if I have time – it’s how I stay grounded. My family is super spiritual so meditation has been part of my life since I was a kid.
