Karolina Kurkova, is a Czech model, best known as a former Victoria's Secret Angel, and actress. Mario Testino praised the "proportions of her body and her face, as well as her energy level", which he said "ma[de] her a model who could fit almost into any moment". Vogue editor Anna Wintour called her the "next supermodel".Kurková is among the world's top-earning models, having earned an estimated $5 million in the year 2007. She placed 6th in the Forbes annual list of the highest-earning models.

Karolína Kurková was born in D??ín, Czechoslovakia, to Josef Kurka, a Czech basketball player, and a Slovak mother. While Kurková was young, she was made fun of for her height. But after a friend sent photos of Kurková to an agency in Prague, at age 15, she landed a runway appearance, as well as gigs for commercial and print advertising. She later traveled to Milan to gain more experience and signed a modeling contract with Miuccia Prada.In September 1999, Kurková appeared in the American edition of fashion and lifestyle magazine Vogue, and, after moving to New York City at the age of 17, graced the cover of the February 2001 edition.

The Czech beauty and former Victoria's Secret Angel also revealed that being bullied as a teenager for her "big teeth and long legs" had been instrumental to her success.I love to mentor girls because so many of them don't have the confidence yet and I remember feeling that way before I was a model, when people made fun of the way I looked," Kurkova told us. "It sounds superficial, but having someone to give you that confidence and tell you that you're beautiful makes a huge difference and makes you work harder."

"I want people to know that it's OK to be different and that you have to flaunt your imperfections. If you have big teeth like me, smile a lot and if you have long legs don't be afraid to wear long dresses!"
