After participating in yesterday’s Paralympic torch relay, supermodel and Natalia Vodianova continued her philanthropic efforts with a pit stop at Russian restaurant Mari Vanna in London to launch a sweet new treat! Exercise followed by dessert… tell us more Natalia!
In connection with her Naked Heart Foundation, the Russian beauty added a new guilt-free indulgence, the ‘Naked Heart Dessert,’ to the restaurant’s menu, with 100% of the profits being donated to her organization. Having come from a disadvantaged background herself, the top model has been dedicated to improving the lives of young children growing up in Russia by building playgrounds throughout the country.
“I think play is the best therapy for children,” said Natalia. “When I was a child, it was only when I played that I was happy and could forget about the realities of life.”
With Fashion Week — well more like Fashion Month really— kicking off in New York next week, Natalia has already started planning for the Paris shows she will be attending — sorry, but you won’t catch this brunette beauty strutting the catwalk this season.
“I always go to Givenchy, Louis Vuitton, Stella McCartney, and Valentino,” Natalia told Elle UK. “Sadly, I won’t make it to London Fashion Week, though I love all the local designers here, especially Christopher Kane and Giles.”
Any chance we’ll catch you in New York Natalia? Fingers crossed!
