Glamour, panache and elegance. Words we commonly associate with the term modelling. The life of a supermodel may at first glance seem incredibly easy, but looks can be deceiving. From exhilarating work-out sessions to the constant barrage of internet trolls, the “perfect world” is anything but easy.
. With a degree in Law from King’s College, University of London this half-Indian, half-Peruvian Supermodel shot to fame with her acting debut in Kapoor and Sons which released worldwide. Starting with a 12 page editorial for #Vogue
India, Elena’s career blossomed with back to back editorials with India’s leading magazines. Over time Elena made the transition to campaigns, representing prestigious brands such as Westside for several seasons.
Elena is also an animal rights activist and is an active part of several projects undertaken by influential bodies like #PETA
. She regularly donates to children charities and is actively involved with talks at schools for various welfare organizations.
Having recently wrapped filming for ‘Badla’ with @amitabhbachchan
and ‘Housefull 4’ with @akshaykumar
, Elena will next be seen alongside @therealemraan
for ‘Cheat India’ releasing in January 2019. This TEDxBITSGoa take a peek behind the curtains of “glamour”, as Elena Fernandes tells us about what her #supermodel
life actually entails!
