In October 2009 Desai was announced as the new face of the retail apparel company Provogue, along with Indian actor Hrithik Roshan.
Desai also featured with Italian designer Leonardo Ferragamo of Salvatore Ferragamo Italia S.p. for L'Officiel magazine, and walked for fashion designer Christopher Kane in a Fashion Week.

Desai moved to London from the North East of England to carry out her role as ambassador of Great Britain.

"The reason we have come a long way is I feel we both trust each other, and the industry is also an insecure place so we support each other," added the 37-year-old who is finally ready to present his film to the viewers.
Actually, we haven’t broken up so far but when we fight we feel now we are going to break up," Abhay told reporters.
Desai got herself a super model status in India in the short span of two years before she started filming for her first feature film and moved on to acting in 2011.
