Natalia Vodianova....


....the cover of Russian Vogue March 2008....




....by Mario Testino....



....with her husband....

....by Ellen von Unwerth for Vogue Italia....






....Vogue US....





....with her husband, The Honourable Justin Portman, and their three beautiful children.....

I have always been a fan of London based Russian supermodel Natalia Vodianova. Last Friday she appeared on the Jonathan Ross show on BBC1 and I was absolutely mesmerised by her. She looked stunning but not only that she was eloquent, charming and so gracious in her manner. Still only 28, married with three young children, she certainly has her feet on the ground, modelling full-time and also raising funds for various charities including her own Naked Heart Foundation which aims to build and provide inspiring playgrounds in the poorest areas of Russia. Truly a woman of substance....

  18. Simone, A classic beauty and I imagine we will see more of her over the years. I remember when she first started appearing in magazines and reading a feature of her wedding. Good on her..she seems well grounded. Not an easy feat in that industry. Beautiful images. You do such a wonderful job pulling together the very best :)

  28. She is exquisite isn't she? How delightful to hear she is also well grounded. Very refreshing. I have wondered what it would be like just for a day to be exquisitely beautiful...would it be wonderful or perhaps you wouldn't even notice and wonder why everyone was staring at you. I did have a moment in my '20's when everyone was staring at me as I walked down the main street of Nth Sydney...I thought "Wow, I must be looking especially fabulous today."....not...turns out my skirt was tucked into my underwear. Meredy xo.

  29. I didn't know anything about her, but her face as always stood out to me. She's stunning.

  30. She is indeed gorgeous on the inside and out - I thought she came across so well on that interview. Have a tag for you at mine Lovely if you want to play along? x

    ReplyDelete
  31. I agree. She looks so fragile and beautiful.

    I hope it's not true, but last week's French Elle said she and her husband are splitting. Think that's very sad.

    If you drop in chez moi I have a tiny cadeau for you.

    Warm regards,
    Tish

  32. She is exquisite. A real face. How I do wish American fashion magazines would go back to placing models on their covers instead of actresses. Are you listening Anna Wintour????

  33. What a gorgeous model!! Very nice post! And I wish you the best trip ever in 41 days....wish it was me!

    xo, Kristin

  34. Wow, she's stunning. I don't think I realized those were all her...and 3 kids? Geez.

    ReplyDelete
  35. I am to presume it was Justin who gave birth to their gorgeous children, 'cos her body screams 'I'm too perfect to have undergone the ravages of multiple pregnancies & childbirth!!'
