Curious to know what it must be like to walk a mile in a supermodel’s shoes? Well, here’s you chance (sort of)! Russian beauty Natalia Vodianova has joined forces with high-street retailer Centro on the launch of a new shoe collection designed to help raise money for her charity, the Naked Heart Foundation. And much like her own award-winning style— think timeless, Parisian chic— Natalia’s stiletto offerings are sure to be our new Spring style obsession.
The range, which will be sold online at Net-a-Porter, is comprised of a classic, metal-heel pump available in various colors including black, pink and beige. The fashion e-tailer will also debut a pair of white pumps that were designed, and will be sold exclusively, for the site.
“I think that looking good and doing good go really well together,” said Natalia. “I am hoping that the beautiful spring/summer 2013 footwear collection that I created for Centro will not only make every girl feel like a princess, but also provide an opportunity to change the world for the better by supporting the Naked Heart Foundation.”
The gorgeous model founded the charity in 2004, which finances playgrounds and support centers for underprivileged children in her native Russia. In the past, Natalia has helped raise funds for the organization by collaborating on a jewelry collection with Yulia Frosty, as well as a Naked Heart Dessert with London’s Mari Vanna restaurant.
“Social change does not happen with the wave of a magic wand - it happens because we make it happen,” added the supermodel. “I am really happy that Centro and Net-A-Porter have joined forces to make this wonderful project possible. Dear ladies, please support our initiative and may this fairy tale have the happiest of endings.”
You had us at supermodel-approved shoes Natalia! And luckily for us, she’s not the only super looking to enhance our ever-growing shoe collection this season. Polish model-turned-magazine editor Anja Rubik has also just launched her own line of shoes and accessories for Giuseppe Zanotti, while Victoria’s Secret Angel Alessandra Ambrosio has also previously designed shoes for Brazilian footwear brand, Melissa. After all, who knows shoes better than a catwalking superstar?
The Natalia Vodianova for Centro collection will be available for purchase online at Net-a-Porter.com starting March 1st, with all profits from sales benefiting the Naked Heart Foundation. Shop to it!
