Naomi Campbell is engaged to Russian bazillionaire Vladislav Doronin and spends a great deal of her time in Moscow—now she's gone and joined the United Russia political party, reports the Moscow Times. “She is a young, sexy, intelligent woman who has shown how the new Russia can attract the best in the world," a source told the paper. "Once she modernized the fashion world, now she is part of the modernization of Russia." Currently the largest party in the Russian Federation, United Russia is politically centrist and adheres to policies laid out by Vladimir Putin, currently the Prime Minister of Russia. [Moscow Times]
