Stella McCartney Autumn 2010 Campaign Preview | Natalia Vodianova
Natalia Vodianova adds yet another campaign to her portfolio this season with the fall advertisements of Stella McCartney, lensed by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott. Nice idea with the letters and Natalia looks really good too!
Natalia Mikhailovna Vodianova (Russian: ??????? ?????????? ????????, pronunciation Natal’ya Miha?lovna Vodyanova, born 28 February 1982) is a Russian model and philanthropist who now permanently resides in the United Kingdom.[
Born in Gorky, USSR (now Nizhny Novgorod, Russia), Natalia Vodianova grew up in a poor district of the city with her mother and two half sisters, one of whom has cerebral palsy. As a teenager, Vodianova helped her mother sell fruit on the street and later set up her own fruit stand with a friend to help her family out of poverty.
Russian stunner Natalia Vodianova sparkled in her pale pink ruffle frock and perfect demeanour. Street Style extraordinaire Craig Arend caught her before she slipped into the Valentino couture show in Paris.
Vodianova is a founder and the president of the Naked Heart Foundation, a philanthropic organisation that strives to provide a safe and inspiring environment in which to play for every child living in urban Russia. She was inspired to found the charity after visiting Russia with her son Lucas and finding there were no suitable places for children to play. The organisation built its first play park in 2006 in Nizhny Novgorod. It has since built nearly 38 more.
In 2010, Vodianova became an ambassador for Hear the World, a global campaign that seeks to raise awareness of the topic of hearing and hearing loss and to promote good hearing all over the world.
Typically, Marc Jacobs gives his collections for Louis Vuitton a different spin in advertising versus the runway. For the forthcoming fall campaign, slated to break in a wide range of August titles, Christy Turlington, Karen Elson and Natalia Vodianova are shown preening in front of old-fashioned makeup mirrors backstage, as if they were ready to take a stroll around the fountain of the Louvre’s Cour Carré, the setting for Vuitton’s show during Paris Fashion Week in March. Ditto for the multigenerational casting — one model in her 20s, one her 30s, one her 40s — adding up to one of the most sophisticated Vuitton fashion campaigns to date, according to Antoine Arnault, Vuitton’s director of communications.
“The atmosphere was very Fifties, very elegant,” he related. This is the fourth Vuitton campaign shot by Steven Meisel, who constructed the period set in a New York studio.
Arnault described the media spend as “flat” and said it would remain print driven, running in tandem with the company’s “Core Values” campaign. The latest one, depicting Pelé, Diego Maradona and Zinedine Zidane playing foosball in a Madrid cafe, will continue to run through the World Cup tournament and into the fall. In light of the disgraced French team, Arnault expressed relief that Vuitton did not opt to cast today’s soccer stars. “We made the right choice to work with legends and not spoiled brats,” he said. via WWD
Givenchy’s Spring/Summer 2010 ad campaign is predictable, staying true to Riccardo Tisci’s sense of fashion design. The ad campaign is boldly black and white and stars Mariacarla Boscono and Natalia Vodianova. Photographed by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, the ad campaign is classy and concise and let’s the Givenchy brand do most of the talking.
Fashion Designer Hubert de Givenchy was born to a wealthy family 1927 in Beauvais, France. He studied at the ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris. His first job in the fashion industry was when he worked for Jacques Fath in Paris in 1945. He then worked briefly for Robert Piguet and for Lucien Lelong (1946) where he worked with Lelong’s assistants, Pierre Balmain and Christian Dior, and finally for Elsa Schiaparelli (1947- 1951). He opened the House of Givenchy in 1952. He named his first collection for Bettina Graziani, Paris’s top model. Balenciaga was his mentor, although he never worked for him, whose atelier was just across the avenue George V.
