Russia, Through Natalia's Eyes

Everyone knows Natalia Vodianova’s story: Born to a poor family in Russia, she worked at a fruit cart with her family until she was scouted and traveled to Paris to begin modeling. Since becoming a supermodel, Natalia does all she can for her hometown, even starting a charity for children, the Naked Heart Foundation, which aims to build 500 parks for kids in Russia. But not everyone knows Natalia’s Moscow. This weekend, CNN will air her My City_My Life travel documentary, where she shows off her favorite places in the city, from the arts and culture to the food scene and through the stunning subway systems, describing Moscow as: “mysterious, cultural, exciting, crazy, and spiritual.” But here’s a sneak preview, just in case you can’t wait. The cutest part? The second section where she buys ice cream for her kids, and starts talking to the camera in Russian.
