Waluscha D'Souza — her name means "lady of the woods” — wears several aesthetic hats. Having created a lot of fizz during her Pepsi commercial with Shah Rukh Khan, this part-German part-Portuguese supermodel has studied Psychology. One of the rare models who have an enlightening resume in addition to the requisite portfolio, Waluscha was destined to turn heads with gleaming skin and full lips that curve into a million-dollar smile—but her real appeal lies in her elegant demeanour. Despite being paparazzi prey, she is down to earth and focused on mapping out her career. "I'm so excited about a editorial fashion shoot with Colston Julian and am awaiting the release of my short film at the end of this month. It's titled 'Picture Perfect' and directed by Rohan Sippy" she told me.
