Natalia Mikhailovna Vodianova, born on 28th of February 1982 in Gorky, Soviet Union, is a Russian ramp model, philanthropist, and occasional film actress. She is famous for her rags to riches experience. Growing up in a poor district of Avtozavod with her mother and two half-sisters, she used to sell fruits on the street to help her family to survive. At 15, she enrolled in a modeling agency and immediately after two years, relocated to Paris and signed with Viva Models. She’s been successful with modeling, appearing on more than 175 fashion shows both in the United States and the European continent, featuring ready-to-wear and haute couture dress designs. She became the endorser of famous brands L’Oreal, David Yurman, Marc Jacobs, Guerlain, Givenchy, Versace, Calvin Klein, Louis Vuitton, and a lot more. Meanwhile, she delved into the world of acting in 2001 as she was cast in the film CQ by which she co-starred Billy Zane. She also appeared in the 2010 remake of Clash of the Titans alongside Jonathan Rhys. In 2012, she was ranked Top 3 on the Forbes highest paid models, having earned $8.6 million in a year.
So, what’s the key to her slender and svelte figure? Well, according to the renowned model, she doesn’t exercise much. She only runs in a marathon once a month.
As for her diet, she said, “I respect my body. My body is my temple. If I eat like a pig, I feel like a pig.” And here’s her tip to the people who are trying to lose weight. “If you want my tip, everyone should look into the only diet I’ve ever done. When I was little I had ulcers in my stomach from not eating very properly. I had really bad digestion and suffered from it for a long time. Then somebody recommended the blood type diet. Ever since, I have more energy and I’ve been doing it for five years now. It really works for me. It’s not about eating more protein or more carbohydrates — it’s which protein you eat, and which carbohydrates.”
