The thing I love the most about Natalia are her eyes and lips, that's what I always notice first when I see pictures of her. She is such a great model that she has the ability to transform in every picture, so the way that I am able to recognize her most of the time is because of her eyes and lips.

The first time I really took notice of Natalia was when I saw the Russian Vogue September 2010 issue. This was not the first time I had seen Natalia, but the pictures were so beautiful that it put her in the list of my top ten models. I could not find one thing that I did not like about the pictures and I wanted everything she was wearing from the clothes to the accessories. I love this shoot.
