    C’est la révélation inattendue de cette fin de semaine. La top russe Natalia Vodianova et son mari Justin Portman se sépareraient. Cette nouvelle, brièvement évoquée dans le magazine « Elle » cette semaine, touche un des couples les plus solides de la mode. Parents de trois enfants, Lucas, 8 ans, Neva, 4 ans, et Victor, 2 ans, le couple vivait une vie tranquille dans la campagne anglaise. Ce serait la fin d’une belle histoire, dix ans après leur rencontre.

    Une réussite exceptionnelle

    A bientôt 28 ans, Natalia Vodianova a déjà derrière elle une carrière bien remplie. Vendeuse de fruits et légumes dans sa Russie natale, elle débarque à Paris à l’âge de 17 ans et devient très vite un des mannequins les plus demandés. Dernièrement, elle s’était notamment faite remarquer comme égérie et créatrice pour Etam Lingerie.

    It is the unexpected revelation of this weekend. The top Russian Natalia Vodianova and husband Justin Portman would separate. This story, briefly mentioned in the magazine "Elle" this week, hit one of the strongest couples fashion. Parents of three children, Lucas, age 8, Neva, age 4, and Victor, 2 years, the couple lived a quiet life in the English countryside. This would be the end of a beautiful story, ten years after they met.

    An exceptional success

    Soon 28 years, Natalia Vodianova has behind it a busy career. Selling fruit and vegetables in his native Russia, she arrived in Paris at the age of 17 and quickly became one of the most popular models. Lately, she had made such notes as muse and creative for Etam Lingerie.

    :cry: the moment I read her name in this section, I knew it'd be it!, how sad, they were pretty much my Brangelina and made such a lovely couple, and their children are still very little, but anyway, it's probably for the best.

    Maybe now she can stop doing the photoshoots with Justin.

    He must be in his 40's now.

    No wonder she looked so sad when Jonathan Ross mentioned him.

    British. But his family is insanely wealthy. The Portmans are among the top 100 wealthiest families in Britain.

    ^wondering the same. How..sudden. Though separation usually is a prerequisite of modern day divorce, it doesn't necessarily mean that they are at the beginning of one. :unsure: The article doesn't specifically mention divorce, though there is a strong implication towards the end. Let's not draw to conclusions...at least, not so hastily.

    I'm sad about it but not really suprised.
    There were some rumours in her thread weeks ago but I hoped that they were untrue. :(
    I wish them and their children the best for the future.

    Gawd... Hopefully, it's just a rumour and nothing more than that. Natalia and Justin separating is equivalent to death.
