According to the New York Post, Indian women are the new "It" models, a position occupied by Brazilian models a few years ago, and Russian models more recently.

Besides Padma Lakshmi and Ujwalla Raut, there's Lakshmi Menon, who just snagged the Givenchy and Hermé s campaigns. Menon also posed for Mario Testino in Paris Vogue. "There's a new girl, though, who might be the country's next big thing," reports. Kangana Dutta , recently signed by IMG, was shot for Harper's Bazaar by Oliviero Toscani.
