Natalia Vodianova: Spring 2012

I have to say that I am happy to see my all-time favorite model, Natalia Vodianova, working three new ad campaigns for Spring 2012: Stella McCartney, Stuart Weitzman, and Guerlain.  Most likely you are familiar with the Russian model whose face has graced the fashion world via runway, ad campaigns, and magazine covers over the last decade.  Although she has not been a "big name" fashion model per say, she has maintained a steady career in the modeling industry.  What has always fascinated me about her as a model is her ability to simultaneously convey the look of innocence and intriguing combination.

Also, a look at Natalia's Vogue Paris magazine cover and Vogue USA magazine article (both March 2012):

So that is Natalia Vodianova in 2012...

Where did she get her start?  Born in Russia in 1982, she moved to Paris and became a professional model by the age of 17.  Her early modeling years included ad campaigns for Calvin Klein, and her first Vogue USA cover was in September 2004.  Since then she has achieved success in runway, editorial, and advertising campaigns.  In my opinion, some of her most amazing modeling work was during her early career when her photos conveyed innocence and dreams with a hint of sensuality.
