From Historic Garden Photoshoots to Denim Damsel Daywear

 - Sep 21, 2012
These vivacious Natalia Vodianova spreads order the long-standing career of the Russian model and philanthropist. The current London-based dweller is an established affiliate of the DNA management label, home to the stunning likes of Doutzen Kroes and Linda Evangelista.

Vodianova's childhood was troubled with poverty and an estranged father figure. As a young girl she helped her mother sell fruit at local markets. She would soon enter the limelight however as she signed to the Parisian division of Viva Models at the age of 17.

Historic garden photoshoots with U.S. Vogue and denim damsel daywear campaigns with the Etam label provide testaments to her success. She managed to flourish in the face of adversity, providing a template for disadvantaged women wishing to enter the industry.
