Natalie is featured in Madame Figaro magazine – Cannes Issue (May 2011). The photo they used is from Peter Lindbergh portfolio. Big thanks to Mia for the heads up and for the scan!
Natalie talked to The New Zealand Herald about her passions, how family and friends ground her and how she isn’t much of a shopper. Read this very interesting interview below!
Which causes are closest to your heart?
Girls’ education. Seeing how many girls in the world do not have that opportunity, I feel so lucky that I was able to go to school. It affects the rest of their lives, the age at which they have children, their susceptibility to disease, their job, earning power and their status in society. Education really is a powerful way to change the lives of girls and women in the world.
What were your feelings about becoming the “Miss Dior Cherie” ambassador?
It was a real honour to be asked by Dior, which has such an amazing history and is such an elegant brand. It has been wonderful to see how supportive Dior has been of both my artistic endeavours and the non-profit organisations I work with such as FINCA [an organisation promoting village banking to break poverty cycles] and this girls’ education project Dior and I are working on.
Has travel changed your views?
Yes. It is so abstract to imagine someone else’s life going on at the same time, so different from yours. There are literally billions of parallel lives. So, to actually travel the world, meet all kinds of people, talk with them and hear what their day is like, what makes them happy or sad, what their problems, joys and successes are, makes it less abstract and more real: it takes you out of your own petty circumstances.
