Fashion models are people who will always be admired. No matter how thin they are, no matter how bizarre their shoots sometimes look we will not be able to resist the temptation of having a quick look at their photo shoots, because it is often very creative and fascinating. Every month I, Giselle, introduce to you a famous model. My choice is always – some Victoria's Secret model. They are the most beautiful, sexy and interesting!
Karolina Kurkova was born February 28, 1984 in Czechoslovakia. She is among the world’s top-earning models.
While Karolina was young she was made fun of her height. But when her friend sent her photos to a model agency in Prague, she began having her first success at 15. She appeared in many commercials and advertising which made her famous in her own country.
As every aspiring model, the girl wanted more and left for New York at the age of 17. Since then her life changed for ever. Karolina appeared on many covers, including Vogue, representing the internationally acknowledged fashion brands. She was named “Model of the Year” at the 2002 Vogue Fashion Awards because she was recognized as being a workaholic for working 23 weeks straight!
In 2006 the world saw Karolina Kurkova on her first Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show wearing a multi-million dollar fantasy bra. Karolina was stunning and looked very sophisticated as if she had been working on this runway for many years before.
We have seen Karolina many times since then on the runway and she always looks amazing. She has this playfulness but, at the same time, confidence. She is not just a model. When she is on the runway you don’t only look at her dress or body, you will also look into her green eyes. I think she is always very nice, you know, in the real sense of this word. She is actually sweet.
In 2009 Karolina became a mother, too. She had a baby boy with her fiancé, Archie Drury. We are sure that Karolina will be a great mom, if she can work so hard and have a child at quite a young, for a model, age. She also said in one of the interviews that she talks in Czech with her boy, trying to keep her heritage in a family.
