Biography for Natalia Vodianova

Natalia Vodianova (Russian: Наталья Водянова, born 28 Feb. 1982 (36 years ago)) is a Russian-born model, actress and philanthropist who now permanently resides in the United Kingdom.

Early years

Born in Gorky, USSR (now Nizhny Novgorod, Russia), Natalia Vodianova grew up in a poor district of the city with her mother and two half sisters, one of whom has cerebral palsy. As a teenager, Vodianova helped her mother sell fruit on the street and later set up her own fruit stand with a friend to help her family out of poverty.

Career

At age 15, Vodianova enrolled in a modelling academy, was told she would need to learn English to succeed, and mastered the language in three months. By age 17, Vodianova had moved to Paris, France and signed with Viva Model Management Paris.

Vodianova has achieved considerable success as a runway, editorial and advertising campaign model. To date, Vodianova has walked in more 175 runway shows for U.S. and European based designers' ready-to-wear and haute couture collections, has appeared in editorial spreads in fashion magazines worldwide and has completed advertising campaigns for Calvin Klein, Louis Vuitton, L'Oréal, David Yurman, Marc Jacobs, Miss Sixty, Pepe Jeans, Diane von Fürstenberg, Chanel and others.

As of May 2009 (9 years ago), Vodianova has appeared on the cover of British Vogue seven times; the first was the sep. 2003 (15 years ago) issue. She made her first appearance on the cover of the U.S. Vogue in the sep. 2004 (14 years ago) edition alongside eight other models, then appeared as the solo cover subject of the Jul. 2007 (11 years ago) edition of the magazine. During this time period, other covers of the American Vogue have all featured non-model celebrities with only two other exceptions: models Linda Evangelista and Liya Kebede.

As an actress, Vodianova appears in Roman Coppola's 2001 (17 years ago) movie CQ. In sep. 2008 (10 years ago), Vodianova stated that she was not interested in filmmaking because of her three children; however, she appears in director Alexander Kott's 2009 (9 years ago) movie Probka.

In Spring 2009 (9 years ago), Vodianova entered into a three-year agreement to be a brand ambassador for the French lingerie company Etam and will design a lingerie collection each season during the term of the agreement. The collections will be marketed under the brand Natalia pour Etam.

Vodianova was ranked 14th in the UK channel Five's 2005 (13 years ago) TV programme World's Greatest Supermodel. Forbes magazine estimates Vodianova earned $4.5 million (USD) between Aug. 2006 (12 years ago) and Jul. 2007 (11 years ago), $4.8 million (USD) between May 2007 (11 years ago) and Apr. 2008 (10 years ago) and $5.5 million (USD) between Jun. 2008 (10 years ago) and Jun. 2009 (9 years ago), making her the seventh highest earning model worldwide during all three time periods.

In May 2009 (9 years ago), Vodianova co-hosted the semi-finals of the Eurovision Song Contest in Moscow.

Personal life

Vodianova's father walked out on the family when Natalia was a toddler, and she did not have any further contact with him until after she had become famous.

In Nov. 2001 (17 years ago), Vodianova married The Honourable Justin Trevor Berkeley Portman, a British real estate heir and half-brother of the 10th Viscount Portman. In sep. 2002 (16 years ago), over nine months after registering the marriage in the UK, they had a wedding ceremony in St. Petersburg. The couple have three children: Lucas Alexander, a son born on 22 dec. 2001 (17 years ago), Neva, a daughter born on 24 Mar. 2006 (12 years ago), and Viktor, a son born on 13 sep. 2007 (11 years ago). Neva is named after the Russian river Neva and Viktor is named after Natalia's grandfather, who had helped raise her after her father's departure.

Vodianova is a founder and the president of the Naked Heart Foundation, a philanthropic organisation that strives to provide a safe and inspiring environment in which to play for every child living in urban Russia. She was inspired to found the charity after visiting Russia with her son Lucas and finding there were no suitable places for children to play.
