Natalia Vodianova was on-hand to present the 2018 FIFA World Cup trophy in Moscow, Russia, along with 2010 champion Iker Casillas during the opening moments. Louis Vuitton not only crafted the trunk that held the trophy, but they also dressed Natalia and made a trunk for the games that held special meaning for the model.

“Thank you to Louis Vuitton for crafting an iconic trunk, home to 13 FWC Official Match Balls that were recreated exclusively by adidas. The trunk will be auctioned off at the closure of the FIFA World Cup season with all proceeds going towards the work of Naked Heart Foundation.”

Here it is 🏆 so proud to share this historical moment with one of the best goalkeepers ever (and @viktor_portman favorite) @ikercasillas let the games officially begin 💪🏻😍❤️ #fifa2018 Вот он 🏆 Кубок Чемпионата Мира по Футболу. Для меня было большой честью разделить момент презентации кубка на открытии Чемпионата Мира с этой легендой – Икер Касильяс – один из лучших вратарей в истории футбола (и самый любимый вратарь моего сына Виктора 🙋‍♂️). Для команды, чьим капитаном является вратарь, это хороший знак. 🤞⚽️ #россиявперед #чм2018
