Year after year, Natalia Vodianova hosts a Love Ball to raise funds for her charity, the Naked Heart Foundation. And while each party is more decadent than the rest, Natalia’s putting a new spin on this year’s festivities.
Playing off the theme of a White Fairytale, Natalia reached out to 40 of her designer friends to create dresses for the evening. Each gown will go up for auction at Christies, and all of the funds will go directly to building playgrounds for the children of Russia - Natalia’s main charitable focus. In turn, the super modeled each creation for a limited edition book, which was shot by Paolo Roversi. ”Being still a Russian little girl inside, I wanted to create something around my love of fairy tales,” she explained. “I think the events that happened to me in my childhood are driving me.”
This year’s magical evening is set to take place in Paris, during couture week at Valentino’s Wideville chateau. Considering Natalia and Valentino’s relationship and their continued efforts for the charity, the party is sure to be an amazingly over the top moment, thanks to the additional designer influence - not to mention Natalia’s stable of model friends and supporters.
