After winning the Gladrags Megamodel Hunt in 2000, Mumbai born (and raised) Candice Pinto decided modeling was going to be her life. (She had previously scored ‘best body’ at the Top Model of the World contest in Munich, 2001.) “By then I knew modeling was going to dominate my life but what further boosted my morale was winning the Ms. Tourism International Worldwide, Malaysia in 2002.” Not just a pretty face, surprisingly she has a Masters Degree in Economics too.

My best friend(s): “Don’t believe in “best friends”, I have few close friends and they know who they are.”
Remember? She told me this cute story at Valhalla about being at Adam and Nisha Bedi’s beach wedding in Goa and catching the bouquet (even though Aanchal Kumar was vying for it!) Candice also confessed that she didn’t know about the white wedding dress code so showed up in rainbow hues and was super embarrassed!

What I’m up to now: “At the moment apart from Bangalore Fashion Week, doing the Blenders Fashion tour all India, traveling out of the country and a lot of shows in the pipe line, getting geared up for Kolkata Fashion Week, Lakme and many more to follow!”
Beauty Tip: “Do use a good Face cleanser and face cream at night. Drink lots of water and workout on regular basis it keeps you fit and fine.”
P.S. I just remembered seeing her at the JADE launch on Peddar Road, Mumbai (sometime before we were officially introduced.) Grumpy but gorgeous, lol…
