A natural in front of the camera, Nikita Menon requires minimal direction at the photoshoot in the living area of her family home. The 23-year-old is also effortlessly stylish, with the ability to transition a single outfit from one look to another with the right accessories. For instance, her crisp white jumpsuit goes from casual tropical to evening chic by changing out nude heels with a pair of dark stilettoes. 

Let's hear more from her about how she manages to keep her stylish front.

Nikita pairs an all white Guess jumpsuit with her handy Coach handbag for the evening.

"I have a combination of styles. For colours, it ranges from white and earthy tones to prints and multi-coloured pieces. I guess you could say I have no middle ground; it’s either subtle and simple or full-on flamboyant. I love long silhouettes and irregular geometric shapes with soft edges because it accentuates my height."
