Natalia Vodianova has had an amazing career so far. She has walked in over 150 runway shows, appeared in campaigns for heavyweights like Louis Vuitton, Yves Saint Laurent, and Chanel, and appeared on the cover of Vogue, Vanity Fair, W, and Harper’s Bazaar. And while all these accolades are certainly notable, we can’t forget that to top it all off, she also has an enviable sense of personal style! Yes, dear readers, whether she is heading to a runway show or hosting a charity event, Natalia always looks amazing, making her the perfect subject for today’s Model Style story! So, if you love Natalia’s off-duty outfits as much as we do, make sure you click through to today’s story for all the details on what she wears and how she wears it! Read on!
1. It is common knowledge that models look just as amazing off duty as on duty, and Natalia is no exception! In March, Natalia attended the Stella McCartney show in Paris wearing a striped sweater, a pleated mini skirt, and chunky biker boots. We like the way Natalia has chosen boots over, say, ballet flats. Not only does it give her outfit an edgy twist, but it adds personality to the look. If you find yourself drawn to this ensemble, make it your own by picking up Vince’s Stripe Pullover Sweater ($104.99) and pairing it with Miu Miu’s Pleated Wool-Blend Mini Skirt ($565) or Bebe’s Pleated Skirt ($59.99). A pair of Madewell’s Biker Boots ($230) will complete the ensemble.
2. Is anyone surprised to see that Natalia can also pull off an amazing red carpet look? Not so much. Yes, dear readers, at last year’s Harper’s Bazaar “Women of the Year” awards in London, Natalia wowed the crowd in a gold sequined Balmain gown and black peep-toe heels. We love everything about this look, but in particular, we are smitten with the glamorous vibe this look evokes! If you are ready to make this look your own—and you want something that can be worn time and time again—consider opting for a shorter version of this dress. We like French Connection’s Samantha Dress ($298) and J Crew’s Sequined Silk-Crepe Dress ($600).
3. Just last week, Natalia was spotted arriving into Paris wearing a nude maxi skirt, a forest green cardigan, and leather flats. We love that Natalia has created an outfit that is practical for traveling and yet still has plenty of panache! How did she do it? Each piece that Natalia is wearing balances a simple and relaxed silhouette with an interesting detail—whether it is a bold color or a notable texture. The result is a chic outfit that is high on comfort! Ready to try this look? Pair J Crew’s Featherweight Cashmere Cardigan ($158) with a simple tank top and Free People’s Full Maxi Chiffon Skirt ($49.95). Finish with a pair of Prada’s Madras Flats ($392).
4. Back in March, Natalia stepped out for the Dior show in Paris and, once again, looked amazing. Her outfit? A draped olive-green confection and sparkly black pumps. The best thing about an ensemble like this is that it doesn’t just look effortless, it actually is! By choosing a figure-flattering silhouette, Natalia is already one step ahead. By adding a few smartly-chosen, statement accessories, Natalia ensures she stands out from the crowd! To create an equally easy and equally chic look, grab Velvet’s Billy Gauzy Whisper Novelty Ruched Hem Dress ($89) or Bailey 44’s Draped Asymmetrical Dress ($104) and pair it with Elizabeth and James’s Fara Pumps ($197.50).
