Supermodel and charity-campaigner extraordinaire, Natalia Vodianova, is a force to be reckoned with. Many would have been to content to bask in the glory that an international career in modeling brings, but not so for this strong-minded and passionate woman.
Following the tragedy of the Beslan school siege, she set up the Naked Heart charity in 2004 to provide safe play areas for vulnerable children throughout Russia.
Vodianova is a tireless campaigner, running half marathons and hosting the institution that is the Love Ball to raise money for her cause. And now, it’s our turn to help out — and don't worry, there isn’t a fun-run in sight!
The supe has teamed with Russian retailer Centro to create a limited-edition shoe collection. The stiletto style, available in black, papaya, and white is sold exclusively through Net-A-Porter, with all proceeds going to the charity — and it's priced at the rather saintly sum of £60. Giving back never felt (or looked) so good.

Because, nobody should have to give up skirts just because it's winter. read
