Post-Split, Natalia Vodianova Will Be Just Fine, Thank You Very Much

Russian women sure know how to nab very eligible bachelors. We know this not just because we caught the premiere of Russian Dolls—basically a rip-off of Snooki and the gang, but with Russian instead of Italians and Brighton Beach in place of the Jersey Shore. We know this because Natalia Vodianova has found a new love and his name is Antoine Arnault, the 34-year-old son of the big boss at LVMH, Bernard Arnault.


Ever the modern gal, Vodianova used Facebook to reveal the relationship to the world, posting pictures of Arnault Jr and herself kissing on the beach while vacationing with her children in Ibiza. This came after she made public her split from another billionaire, Justin Portman (her husband of nine years and father of her children), via an interview with the London Evening Standard Magazine in June, in which she also let it be known she had fallen for someone else. Until yesterday, however, the Calvin Klein model and Vogue cover girl had refused to disclose the object of her affections.

Besides being the communications director and group administrator for LVMH, young Arnault happens to be on track to inherit the reins of the luxury empire, not to mention vast sums of money. Which makes him the ideal match for a beautiful Russian entrepreneur and philanthropist.
