Natalia Vodianova’s 6-Year-Old Daughter Lands A Modeling Contract

Natalia Vodianova's 6-Year-Old Daughter Lands A Modeling Contract

A couple months ago, Cindy Crawford‘s 10-year-old daughter Kaia Gerber snagged a Versace campaign and we pondered whether or not she was too young. Soon after, Gisele Bundchen‘s niece launched a clothing collection and started modeling. This week, supermodel Natalia Vodianova upped the ante by casting her 6-year-old daughter in a campaign benefiting the Naked Heart Foundation. More »

Natalia Vodianova Addresses That “Better To Be Skinny Than Fat” Controversy

Natalia Vodianova Addresses That "Better To Be Skinny Than Fat" Controversy

Supermodel Natalia Vodianova got into a bit of trouble earlier this week when–while seated on a model panel at the Vogue festival–she offered a rather unfortunate soundbite: “C’mon guys, you know it’s better to be skinny than to be fat.” A minor shitstorm ensued, partly because it’s a slow news cycle and partly because Vodianova herself has done a lot of work to fight negative body image and increasing pressures to be (extremely) thin in the modeling industry.

Gallery: Supermodels Without Makeup, Hair Or Retouching

Every now and again we’re treated to one of those “Beautiful people! They’re just like us!” spreads in a magazine. But those press-baiting editorials are always in perfect, sunset lighting with glamorous styling, etc. This time, however–to celebrate the launch of the Viva model agency in London–Scott Trindle shot a bunch of top models without makeup, hair, or styling, looking just the way they did when they walked into the studio. For once, we’re getting a pretty raw look (there’s a bruise on Natalia’s leg) at these women who make a living off their beauty. Unsurprisingly, they’re all still very, very beautiful. But they’re actually much more compelling to look at, as well. More »

See 'Inspiration Dior,' Christian Dior's Sprawling Museum Exhibit

Tuesday night saw the opening of “Inspiration Dior,” a sprawling, ambitious new exhibit at Moscow’s Pushkin Museum, in which over 12o couture looks from the house’s history are shown alongside the very “paintings and photographs that have inspired its designers,” like Yves Saint Laurent, John Galliano and the man himself. Artists shown include Cezanne, Toulouse-Lautrec, Man Ray, Gustav Klimt, and more. WWD was there, along with the almost-eerily-flawless Natalia Vodianova and everyone else of huge influence in the fashion industry (like Mr. Arnault, of course). Here are the photos. More »
