Karolina Kurkova is a Czech model best known as a former Victoria's Secret Angel and as one of the three supermodel coaches on the reality competition series The Face.
Often called one of the last true supermodels, the Czech-born Kurkova has established herself as a fashion and entertainment icon, most notably gracing best-selling covers of fashion magazines worldwide, starring in numerous high-fashion campaigns, co-starring in a hit film franchise, and producing/starring in an international reality TV series.
After becoming the youngest model to grace the cover of American Vogue at age 16, and being lauded as the "next supermodel" by its famed editor Anna Wintour, Kurkova walked the runways of haute couture fashion shows including Alberta Ferretti and Alexander McQueen.
In 2005, she was named one of Victoria Secret's Angels and subsequently received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2007. In 2009, Kurkova starred in the live action film GI Joe: Rise of the Cobra and went on to play guest-starring roles on NBC's TV series Chuck and 30 Rock.
More than a beautiful face, Kurkova received an award from the non-profit organization Women Together for her humanitarian work.
She continues to campaign for the welfare of children through organisations such as AmFar, New Yorkers for Children and Global Youth Action Network. She has also done work on behalf of the Injured Marine Semper Fi Fund and Wounded Warriors.
Married in 2009, Kurkova's proudest accomplishment is the role of mom to her son, Tobin Jack.
