Natalia Vodianova Says Her Grandmother is Her Style Icon

Russian beauty Natalia Vodianova has revealed her style icon - but it isn't the usual Marilyn Monroe or Audrey Hepburn that Natalia looks up to - it's her 82-year-old grandmother. Natalia says that she always used to look beautifully dressed and well-kept, and would keep the house is perfect condition at all times:
''She is my fashion icon. She always dressed well, had beautiful things - shoes, gloves, scarves - and kept everything in the house pristine. She would get up at 6am, run in the park, swim in the frozen lake, and prepare breakfast by the time I woke up.''

Natalia also says that her grandmother saved her from over-plucking one of her most famous facial features, her thick eyebrows. The model admits she tried to reduce their size for boys but her grandmother stopped her: 

 ''But when my grandmother saw me plucking she said: 'Don't. You will regret it. One day you will wake up with no eyebrows and think how stupid you were. Your eyebrows are the most beautiful thing about you'.' '' 

Natalia says that Fashion Week consumes her life twice each year and now that she has a family she tries to cut down on the shows she walks at so she can look after her children: 

''For one month, twice a year, fashion week and the people in it were my family. [Now] I have three children, I have school runs and doing fashion week, well, it is my idea of a nightmare.''
