On holding out for love
“At 24, I was happy and successful working as a model. But in India, being single in your midtwenties meant you were an old maid, so my parents arranged a marriage. To avoid it, I moved to New York City. Two weeks later, I met and fell in love with my now husband [clothing designer Naeem Khan].”

On skin and hair maintenance
“I practice facial yoga for about six minutes a day to tighten the muscles in my face. And I massage my scalp with jasmine oil twice a month to help bring more blood to the hair follicles and promote healthier growth.”

On her beauty obsession
“I love Armani Rouge d’Armani Lipstick [$34;]. It looks and feels like velvet.”

On appreciating all ages
“In my twenties I found a good man, and in my thirties I had kids. I started my career at 42. When everything is falling into place, age doesn’t matter.”
