Alas, freedom is but a few hours away…
“It’s easy to refer to her life as a modern-day fairy tale, but for Vodianova, it’s a bittersweet comparison. “On the one hand, I don’t like it because my story was not defined by who I am dating, by some prince charming,” she asserts. “I married for love. I work hard on being a good mother, and a good partner and in my profession. Those successes cannot be attributed to chance.” But there is one fairy tale that she’s happy to be associated with: Alice in Wonderland. “She took what was given to her and went with it. Go down the rabbit hole and see what life gives you. I can definitely relate to that!” she says. “Besides, I never wanted to be Cinderella. I’d rather be Alice, and I’m happy I found my wonderland.”
“My transitional moments coincide with other people’s transitional moments, so I was always the archetypal ship that passed in the night—and sometimes picking up a passenger or two. My timing was off for years and years and years. I always knew I’d be better in my fifties than I was in my twenties, so I never had any angst about fading youth or anything, because I don’t feel I ever was sort of young to begin with. I remember being devastated when I went to university—I would always hang around people much older than me—and when I was 16 or 17, I said to this girl, “How old do you think I am?” And she said, “I don’t know, 28?” I was horrified.”
Have a beautiful weekend (I’m going rock climbing and hitting up the Scandinavian spa with the man)!
