Who's looking at the shoes? Supermodel Natalia Vodianova strips off for new Stuart Weitzman campaign

But with a near-naked Natalia Vodianova as its star, the footwear is likely to be the last thing people notice.
The Russian-born supermodel, 30, looks flawless, despite being a mother-of-three, posing in nothing but a hat, boots and a pair of knickers in one frame.

Another sees her show off an enviably flat stomach in a midriff-baring top and ankle boots, while a third in the series shows her with a coat draped over her shoulders with nothing beneath.
Of course, there are shoes: over-knee black patent and leather boots have a Sixties feel to them, while metal stiletto-ed courts and ankle boots are pure winter glamour.

The campaign was shot by celebrity photographer Mario Testino and continues a theme from the spring ads, albeit in a darker, more sultry way for winter.
According to WWD, the campaign is a play on the idea that 'Stuart Weitzmans are the first thing you put on in the morning and the last thing you take off at night.'
Ms Vodianova, who split from husband Justin Portman last year, is not the only supermodel in recent weeks to strip of in the name of footwear.
The latest issue of Harper's Bazaar saw Miranda Kerr pose in a similar shoot, wearing nothing but next season's hottest new heels.
Ms Vodianova, who is mother to sons Lucas, ten, and Viktor, four, as well as daughter Neva, six, is currently dating Antoine Arnault, son of LVMH boss Bernard Arnault.
Her new ads for Stuart Weitzman will appear in the September editions of Vogue, Elle, harper's Bazaar, Vanity Fair, W, Interview and InStyle among others, as well as on billboards in LA, New York, Miami, Milan and Paris.

Revealed: Kate's cousin Katrina Darling's raunchy pose for Playboy cover
PUBLISHED: 17:17, 15 August 2012 | UPDATED: 17:17, 15 August 2012
Posing seductively in suspenders and black lingerie, this is Kate Middleton's cousin, Katrina Darling, on the front cover of Playboy magazine.
Earlier this week, it was revealed that the dancer was paid a six-figure sum to strip off for the adult publication. And now we can reveal the magazine are keen to emphasis Katrina's royal connection on their September magazine cover.
While Katrina has never met Kate, she's called a 'royal beauty' and 'Britain's new burlesque queen' on the front page.

The 22-year-old's hair falls around her shoulders in a 'Chelsea blow-dry' style for the cover picture so her long brown locks look similar to the Duchess' famous curls. Her smokey eye make-up is also reminiscent of Kate - who often wears dark eyeliner.
The provocative performer, who is originally from Sunderland, appears in an eight page spread in the magazine, including striking a sultry pose as she lies topless on a sheepskin rug.
Miss Darling gained notoriety before last year’s Royal Wedding after her links to Kate were revealed.

The pair are second cousins, once removed, with Miss Darling’s grandmother being sister to the duchess’s great grandfather Thomas Harrison.
Miss Darling, who has never made any attempt to contact the Middletons, insisted that she had been a burlesque dancer for years and the recent success and attention is just a happy coincidence.
But that didn't stop her choreographing a burlesque routine to mark the Jubilee, titled God Save the Queen - which she performed earlier this year at Whiskey Mist nightclub.
At the start of the act, Miss Darling donned a figure hugging red corset teamed with a union jack skirt and small crown perched on her head. But as the anthem got going she stripped off completely, revealing bright red nipple tassels and a thong.

Until earlier this year, the dancer spent her days as a banker at Barclays, where she never hid her late night escapades.
She claimed the team who worked alongside her in the private wealth management division treated her hobby as a source of amusement.
Speaking in March, she said: 'Everybody is really supportive. They think it's a bit of fun.'
The dancer has since decided to take her act to New York to cash in on her newfound fame and the royal connection.
