When I read Harper’s Bazaar September 2011 issue I was enchanted by the article of Natalia Vodianova’s Love Ball.(Natalia Vodianova wearing one of Valentino's creations.)
The ceremony took place in the Chateau de Wideville, Valentino’s Garavani 17th-century mansion, in aid of the Naked Heart Foundation, which the supermodel was co-hosting with Valentino and Giancarlo Giammetti. Fashion houses such as Dolce & Gabbana, Nina Ricci and Alexander McQueen provided 45 dresses designed especially for the night. Over £2 million was raised from this night.
Here are a few shots of Natalia Vodianova wearing exclusive designs auctioned on the night.
The theme of the big night was “White Fairy Tale”- in fact, all the guests were wearing white dresses as if they had come out of a fairy tale story.
"It's a winter wonderland" said Anne Hathaway (Carine Roitfeld) (Kate Moss)
For the finale, Natalia Vodianova stood centre stage , as the other models walked around her, and her nine-year-old son Lucas ran in circles trying to get the best view of him mum.Here is a link of a video on youtube that shows a few moments of the night: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kw8JhEotgGs&feature=player_embedded#!
