Diandra Soares is an Indian model, fashion designer and television host.[1] She is most noted for her bald looks on the ramp. She was also a participant on the Colors TV reality show Bigg Boss 8.

Modelling career[edit]

Soares has been active in the field of modelling since the age of 16. Her first assignment was for Tips and Toes and her first show was for McDowell's. In 1995, she was crowned as Miss Bombay, and that helped her to get contracts from various leading brands like Dinesh Suitings, VIP Lingeries, Tillsbury whiskey. She has walked for many international fashion shows in her career which were conducted by Gucci, Leonard Paris, Emanuel Ungaro, Sonia Rykiel, and Miami Fashion Show.[citation needed]

Soares is noted for her bald looks on the ramp. Designers opened and closed the shows with Soares in the Lakme Fashion Week. In September 2013, she shaved her head again. Soares commented that it was done for religious reasons and by going bald she felt spiritually empowered.[2] She also added that her bald head might prevent her entry to many fashion weeks. She once again shaved her head during her session in Big Boss 8.[3]
