Supermodel Natalia Vodianova launches shoe collection for the Naked Heart Foundation
Russian-born Natalia Vodianova has strutted down international runways, been the face of major global campaigns and most recently added world-wide philanthropist to her list. She has teamed up with Russian retailer Centro to create a footwear collection to raise money for her charity, the Naked Heart Foundation.
The Naked Heart Foundation was founded by Vodianova in 2004 and aims to provide support to vulnerable children in Russia. Her charity is now one of the country’s most important charities, and has built over 90 playgrounds across Russia.

“Social change does not happen with the wave of a magic wand – it happens because we make it happen,” she added. “I am really happy that Centro and Net-A-Porter have joined forces to make this wonderful project possible. Dear ladies, please support our initiative and may this fairy tale have the happiest of endings.”
The collection, retails at a very affordable £60, and comprises of one sexy pump, with a metal heal in three colours, (pink, nude, and black).
