Supermodel Natalia Vodianova is the poster girl for ’60s-style pop art fashion in the December issue of Vogue UK. She’s photographed in a kaleidoscope of colors that recall the works of artists Andy Warhol and Peter Max.
Vodianova, 30, who graces the magazine’s cover, has risen to the ranks of supermodeldom. She was third on Forbes magazine’s top-earning models list, with $8.6 million in gross earnings for 2012.
She’s been a Vogue darling ever since she appeared in the U.S. edition in a feature on models of the moment in 2004. Shes’ also been a muse for photographer Steven Meisel and has appeared on the cover of UK Vogue at least eight times.
Natalia Vodianova Sexy Bold Fashion Statement
In her latest spread by photographer Mario Testino, she combines retro prints with faux fur by Roksanda Ilincic. She also wears American Apparel, Jonathan Sanders and Manolo Blahnik.
In another image, she sports a Marc Jacobs raspberry blazer that “gives new meaning “to the term power suit” when paired with Emilio Cavallini and Duchesse. She’s styled by fashion editor Lucinda Chambers.
Vodianova separated from her husband of nine years Justin Portman in February 2010, and finalized their divorce in June a year ago. She is currently seeing Antoine Arnault, communications head for luxury brand Louis Vuitton and son of billionaire businessman Bernard Arnault.
Natalia has come a long way since her birth in Gorky in what was then the Soviet Union. Her father walked out on the family when she was a toddler and she sold fruit from a street stand to help make ends meet until she was discovered at 15. She moved to Paris two years later, and was an instant sensation.
