Friday Editorial Love

Modern-day style icon Olivia Palermo graces the cover of Tatler Russia in a rainbow of darling colour…

The fashion starlet, model and actress, who has become known for her impeccably polished wardrobe, is one of the most watched style muses of today. Favouring classic pieces and gravitating towards sharp tailoring, Palermo’s style is timelessly chic and effortlessly glamorous.

This editorial for Tatler Russia evokes the allure of Palermo’s feminine style.

Wearing beautiful brights from Elie Saab, John Galliano, Marni, Miu Miu, Giorgio Armani and others, the imagery has a refined beauty and yet playful spirit. Shot in Madrid by Santiago Esteban, the editorial is a sweet mix of elegance and whimsy – perfect for envisioning an opulent Summer romance…

“Fashion is something that interests me on a daily basis – it started when I would see my mother and aunt get dressed up and go out at night in the city.”
– Olivia Palermo

Happy Weekend! xx

Love, Love, Love… Natalia Vodianova

Model, Actress, Designer, Wife & Mother, Philanthropist… Natalia Vodianova is one extraordinary lady.

About Natalia Vodianova…

Born in Gorky, USSR, Natalia Vodianova grew up in a poor district of the city. As a teenager, Vodianova would help her mother sell fruit on the street and later set up her own fruit stand to help her family out of poverty. At the age of 15, Vodianova enrolled in a modelling academy. She was told she would need to learn English to succeed in the business. Vodianova mastered the language within just 3months and by the age of 17 had already moved to Paris and signed with Viva Models.

Career…

Vodianova has walked in over 175 runway shows and appeared in countless editorial spreads for fashion magazines worldwide. She has covered, on numerous occasions, Vanity Fair, Vogue, i-D, W, Italian Vogue, British Vogue, Pop, and Tatler, amongst others. This month alone, she graces two covers! Vodianova has been the ‘face’ of many campaigns, including those for; Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Yves Saint Laurent, Marc Jacobs, Calvin Klein, Diana Von Fürstenberg, L’Oréal and others. As part of her contract with Etam (the French lingerie label), Vodianova has also designed a lingerie collection each season, under the brand Natalia pour Etam.

Outside Of Modelling…

Vodianova has three children with husband Justin Portman, and has been recognized for her philanthropic contributions. She is a founder and the president of the Naked Heart Foundation, a organisation that strives to provide a safe and inspiring environment for every child living in urban Russia to play in. In November 2010, Vodianova was awarded the Harper’s Bazaar Inspiration of the Year.

Vodianova will soon appear on the silver screen starring opposite Jonathan Rhys Meyers in the romance Belle du Seigneur. Of taking on the role of actress, Vodianova has said: “Acting is an extension of what I do as a model because I never just pose. I always give a bit more.”

Fashion Magazines Are My Addiction…

Each month I purchase several fashion magazines – between Vogue (the US, UK and Australia versions are a must) as well as Elle (UK and Australia). I also end up buying a few others depending on which covers captivate me the most. And for January 2011 it looks like I will be buying a lot of Fashion Magazines!

January covers just look spectacular! A New Year looks set to bring colour, joy and sexy sophistication. My absolute favourite January 2011 covers (pictured above)

>> Lily Donaldson for Harper’s Bazaar US
>> Emily Blunt for Harper’s Bazaar UK

I also love the Muse Winter 2010 Covers, starring Paz de la Huerta, Carolyn Murphy, Edita V & Magdalena (pictured right). Shot by Karl Lagerfeld, Salma Hayek for V Magazine Spain is simply mesmerising (pictured below)! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!
