We’re pretty sure models are officially no longer allowed to complain about having to run from show to show all fashion week, as Natalia Vodianova literally ran a half marathon just hours before closing the show.
Apparently, it’s become a yearly tradition for the Russian beauty, who never trains beforehand, unless you count eating a lot of fatty foods (if her boyfriend Bernard Arnault’s recent Facebook comment is to be trusted) as training: “So impressed!!!!! Fantastic race baby!!!” he wrote. “I testify 100% to no training before!!! only ice cream and good french food.” [Ed. note: *eyeroll*]
Vodianova of course looked fresh as a daisy after running the 13.1 miles (which she did to raise money for the Naked Heart Foundation), and proceeded to walk the Givenchy runway about seven hours later.
Given Vodianova’s ability to look the way she does despite being a 31-year-old mother of three, we’re not actually that shocked. We also wouldn’t be shocked if it turned out Natalia Vodianova was not a human.
