Fresh from her jaunt around London for the Paralympic torch relay, good-looking do-gooder Natalia Vodianova popped into Russian restaurant Mari Vanna in Knightsbridge to launch a tasty new addition to the menu; her Naked Heart Dessert. The guilt-free indulgence that donates 100% of its profits to her Naked Heart Foundation.
Coming from a disadvantaged background herself, the mother-of-three felt compelled by her experiences as a child and opportunities as an adult, to improve the lives of Russian children by building playgrounds throughout her native country. I think play is the best therapy for children,' she said 'When I was a child, it was only when I played that I was happy and could forget about the realities of life.
As well organizing all this, the supermodel will be taking in - but not walking in the shows at Paris Fashion Week. I always go to Givenchy, Louis Vuitton, Stella McCartney and Valentino. Sadly, I wont make it to London Fashion Week though I love all the local designers here especially Christopher Kane and Giles.
Does this mean shes planning to focus her time entirely on the charity? No, no. I adore modeling thats my form of play so I dont think of it in terms of juggling it and the foundation. I love what I do and will continue to do it for a very long time to come.
