Natalia shared the greatest lessons her mom has taught her.
In honor of Mother's Day, Vanessa and Natalia were featured in a short film from Bulgari and Vogue. In the clip, they talk about the lessons they have learned from each other, and one thing Natalia said she holds near and dear from her mother is: "People may not remember what you did or may not remember what you said, but they will remember how you made them feel."
She also noted her mother passed down to her the meaning of true beauty. "Over the years, she taught me confidence, and that beauty comes from the inside first," Natalia said. "Beauty fades, so be sure to be positive, confident, and like who I am, my morals and views. That's definitely helped shape who I am as an individual."

Natalia said she and her mom have a rare connection.
"We connect on a whole different level, and I feel like that's rare in mother-daughter relationships," 18-year-old Natalia said of her bond with her mom, 38.
"It's just great because I live with my role model," Natalia said of her mother. "You know, my biggest role model, you're right there. I can just ask you anything, and you give the best advice ever." She also credited her mother for being "the strongest person" she's ever known. "You've always been my rock my entire life—that's what I really really cherish."
