Supermodel Natalia Vodianova has found great success in the fashion industry with her numerous runway walks and memorable photo shoots, and is also known for her lucrative contract with Calvin Klein. The mother-of-five is also a well-known philanthropist who founded the Naked Heart Foundation in 2004, a Russian-based charity that provides play facilities for underprivileged children with special needs. Given her fashion and philanthropic background, it's no surprise that she is now combining both worlds with help from peer-to-peer fashion rental site Villageluxe.
The e-commerce company recently launched its philanthropic initiative, Charity Closets, and it tapped Vodianova to help kick things off. On loan are 24 fabulous items straight from her closet in Paris, where 100 percent of Vodianova's earnings as a lender will be donated to her Naked Heart Foundation charity. In the spirit of giving, Villageluxe is also donating a portion of its borrower fee to Vodianova's charitable cause.
"I'm really passionate about Villageluxe," said Vodianova in a statement. "Together, we can benefit charities around the world by opening our closets and our hearts with Charity Closets. I invite all of you to rent these special pieces, lend your own, lift women up, and save the planet while doing it!"
Below are a few of the standout pieces we wouldn't mind adding to our closet.
Vodianova shared a snapshot to her Instagram of herself in a leopard-print Vetements minidress with long sleeves. This exact dress retails for $990 but can be rented for $125 a week. Consider adding a pair of embossed leather sandals from Christian Louboutin ($1160 retail and $100 rental fee) to complete your outfit.
Vodianova also Instagrammed a picture of herself in a blue, silk midi dress from Ulyana Sergeenko that she wore to a Russian gala. The floral-print dress is available for rent at $250 and retails at $5,000.
She previously wore a black Tom Ford tuxedo ($5,200 retail and $500 rental) to attend the Berluti Men's Fall/Winter 2015 show in Paris.
Vodianova was spotted arriving at Nice airport during the 2017 Cannes Film Festival carrying a Louis Vuitton x Jeff Koons Palm Springs backpack. The limited edition bag features Leonardo da Vinci's famous Mona Lisa motif and retails for $3,200 but you can borrow it for just $200.
All 24 pieces from Vodianova's Charity Closet donation can be shipped across the United States and can be messengered or picked up in New York City.
