Karolína Kurková (born February 28, 1984 in Decín, Czechoslovakia), 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 "made 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. She lives in New York City's TriBeCa district and enjoys courtside basketball games at Madison Square Garden.
On January 8, 2009, FoxNews.com reported that Kurková suffered from hypothyroidism, which led to her unusual heavier physique and caused Kurková to be panned by fashion critics, when she walked the runway for Cía Marítima and Victoria's Secret in June 2008 and November 2008, respectively.
In February 2012 at the Council of Fashion Designers of America forum on "A Well Balanced Life", Kurková spoke about her thyroid problems: “I thought I was going crazy. I was having panic attacks every minute and I didn't know what was happening, because I've been a healthy person.
I've exercised all my life. I've always eaten well and taken care of myself.” Kurková also said she developed symptoms of premature menopause and gained 30 pounds (14 kg). Robert McConnell, a thyroid specialist, pointed out that Kurková's case includes a spate of symptoms which "totality doesn't fit into one, neat little package".
In July 2009, she announced she was expecting her first child with her fiancé, Archie Drury.Kurková revealed that Drury had proposed to her while on holiday in Cape Town, South Africa, and they were married before the October 29, 2009 birth of their son, Tobin Jack Drury, weighing six pounds three ounces.
