She is a Hot Indian Female Model. She is curvaceous! She is sensual! And bloody hell, she is intelligent! Anwesha Mandal, a Mumbai based writer/photographer/model is a package that men usually dream of in their girl(s). She talks exclusively with us talking about her life so far, and of course MEN ;). And she is our this week’s Eye Candy too!
SV: Could you please tell us our reader a bit about you! A little background!
AM: I have been a professional photographer & writer for many years. I would model when I was younger, but then I got completely pre-occupied with shooting pictures & because of certain wrong decisions I just didn’t continue, but now I am back at it and loving it. 🙂
SV: And how did modeling happen in life? Conscious effort or just by luck?
AM: Well I was in Xavier’s & my photography professor wanted to shoot me & a couple of friends, so we thought why the hell not! I never pursued modeling back then, but I enjoyed posing even for friend’s projects or self-portraits. Post that different people approached me for various shoots till now where I have a good set of pictures. Now I push myself for certain modeling projects.
SV: What are your memories from your first shoot?
AM: Well it was rather fun & creative because it was an anti-fashion shoot plus I was pretty comfortable. I although have a very strange memory, where both the other girls were dark skinned and the photographer kept saying “God you are so white, you need the bronzer.”
SV: What would you say is your fashion statement look?
AM: I think my style is edgy- chic, but I have a very varied style or taste I get bored of the same kind of clothes so I keep picking up different, interesting things. I love black though & bright colors. I barely wear pastels or browns.
SV: What was the feeling like in the stomach, when you were getting ready for your first shoot?
AM: I don’t really think I was nervous, but I wasn’t so sure about my angles but generally I am very comfortable in my skin.
SV: What drives you to be a model?
AM: Honestly I like good pictures. Even if someone else doesn’t shoot me, I would take a self -portrait myself. It is a bit of acting when you are trying to get the perfect pose. I do a lot of other creative stuff as well so I approach modeling as a fun thing to do on the side.
SV: Your take on www.stylerug.net
AM: It’s an interesting website with a lot of information on various topics. I like that that you can see breaking news to travel stuff as well as technology posts. A lot of nice interviews as well on it
Measurements as of now: 36-28-34
I think my best physical feature is: I think my neck & collarbones & my eyes
Men say my best physical feature is: Hahaha you should ask them 🙂
Sexiest woman ever, and why: Liv Tyler is gorgeous but the only woman I would ever want to be with is Rooney Mara. More than her looks it’s because she is so edgy & interesting & intriguing that I find her very attractive.
My best trait is: I am honest & I can laugh through the worst situations in life. I have the ability to see light in a tunnel when there is practically no hope. I am very positive.
My worst habit is: There maybe a couple. I can be a bit detached & if I lose respect for someone, it gets hard for me to even acknowledge the person when they are around. I do try though to correct myself & if ever I make mistakes, I am always open to learning & growing.
I wish more men would: just try not so hard to impress a woman and just try and keep a casual conversation. At least that works with me!
The key to my heart is: Good conversation really.
Compliment me on: my creativity, my humor & my intelligence. Then you can tell me about the superficial stuff as well.
Physical feature I like to show off: My neck & I love to do up my eyes.
A superficial thing I am attracted to: A good looking man with good abs is always attractive but after a point if there is nothing else interesting up in the head, it’s rather pointless.
My favorite physical feature in a man: Shoulders & arms
My favorite trait in a man: Humility, Honesty & intelligence
A man will impress me if: he is hard-working, creative & honest.
A man will turn me on if: They are individualistic & live life by their own rules.
The simplest thing you can do to make me happy is: Take me to the beach & jump into the ocean with me!
I will not even give you a second look if: I see you behaving aggressively or violent. It puts me off.
Something stupid men do or say when they first meet me: When guys say “You are so pretty. You are so gorgeous” 10 times in a conversation with nothing else to add to the conversation then it really doesn’t flatter me. I don’t know if this works with other women. I have never ended up dating guys who hit on me profusely. At the end of the day only good looks does not float my boat.
The best date I ever had was: I am a very easygoing person. I don’t necessarily need anything fancy. It was probably a weekend away where we just sat next to the beach with good food, good drinks & good conversation.
I am the best in the world at: being me.
I need a man who will: I don’t need but I would want a man who shares the same excitement & love for thrill & adventure & learning new things like I have.
My philosophy of love: It is beautifully agonizing to be madly in love but it is the most beautiful thing. But to me love essentially should be growth as people more than anything.
