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.

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.
