Bollywood actress Deepika Padukone has become the first Indian beauty to be on the cover of Latin America's Vogue, Femalefirst reported.
The actress who is also a supermodel visited Lima Peru, last month for a photo shoot for Vogue and Cosas Magazine.
During her visit, the 'Om Shanti Om' actress stayed at the presidential suite at the Miraflores Park Hotel, Lima.
The suite's previous occupants include Bill Clinton, Duran Duran and Tommy Hilfiger. "The presidential palace that I visited is to date one of the most stunning pieces of architecture I have come across, its beauty is indescribable. The warmth that the people of Peru gave me is something that I will always hold close to my heart," Padukone said.
"If you get this much respect as a stranger, I can imagine the care you get when you are their loved one.
"Be it the Minister of Tourism whom I met at the Peru fashion show or a shopkeeper in the local market, everyone greeted me with so much of affectation that it fills me with gratitude even now," the actress added.
Deepika previously walked the ramp with international model Naomi Campbell at the Lakme Fashion week 2009 in Mumbai and also attended the Fashion Week Peruvian Moda as the guest of honour.
