Natalia Vodianova is the first supermodel who is featured on the cover page of Glamour magazine and it is not surprising why she got the honor to be on the cover page of the magazine’s April 2015 issue.
The 33-year-old Russian model talked about how her homeland’s atmosphere affected her beauty. She said, “I watched Soviet films made in the 1940s, ’50s, ’60s, ’70s, because that’s what was on. And a certain kind of light and beauty were part of the propaganda. These women had eyeballs that were whiter than snow. Huge smiles. So when everything was tough, what people were seeing on TV were these motivational images; there was always a bit of strength through the suffering. When I discovered foreign films, Audrey Hepburn became my icon. She’s so full of life. I love Roman Holiday, Sabrina.”
Natalia also talked about her first experience as she started modeling, “I didn’t know the business. These poor girls were lined up in short skirts. They were all scared. There was this guy walking along, looking at them, and I could see how much he enjoyed it. He was the biggest a**hole. I stood in the corner, and some other guy took a picture of me. That was how I was discovered, really.”
