The supermodel Karolina Kurkova has a $10 million fortune.
Wikipedia’s Biography of Karolina Kurkova
Karolina Kurkova is a Czech and Slovak (mother) fashion model born on February 28, 1985, in Decin, Czech Republic. She rose to fame as a Victoria’s Secret Angel from 2005 until 2009.
How much money does Karolina Kurkova have, then? Reports put Karolina’s wealth at over $10 million, most of which she has amassed during her 15-year-plus career as a model, with the rest coming from her acting and TV performances in recent years.
At 1 m 80 cm, Karolina was once considered too tall to be a model. Still, now she is in high demand thanks to her height and the seemingly perfect proportions of her physique, as described by renowned photographer Mario Testino. Her career and wealth got off to a roaring start when, at the tender age of 15, she made her catwalk debut and landed on the cover of Vogue.
It’s Karolina Kurkova. In terms of wealth, we may say that $10,000,000 is safe.
After relocating to New York in 2000, Karolina continued to enjoy consistent success. She was quickly tapped by Victoria’s Secret to walk in their annual Fashion Show, which was webcast at the time but still hugely popular, thus ensuring widespread recognition for the young model and, in turn, a growing bank account.
Kurková went on to clinch endorsement deals with a who’s who of the fashion industry, including names like Calvin Klein, Louis Vuitton, Ralph Lauren Versace, Christian Dior, Karl Lagerfeld, and Yves Saint Laurent. Perhaps her most significant accomplishment up to this point was modeling Victoria’s Secret’s $10 million Star of Victoria dream bra during their 2002 fashion show. Karolina’s financial situation was, of course, quite promising.
At the same time, Karolina was featured in various print advertisements for brands, including Tommy Hilfiger, Chanel, Valentino, Hugo Boss, and John Galliano. Unsurprisingly, her net worth has increased by as much as $6 million, given that her resume has a veritable “who’s who” of the fashion and jewelry sectors.
The success of her career as a model was undeniable; she was rarely without assignments, and in 2002 she was honored as “Model of the Year” at Vogue’s Fashion Awards. When it comes to Karolina’s fame, the fact that she has appeared on the covers of Vogue magazines worldwide, as well as Vanity Fair, The Face, and Elle, should be enough.
After a successful modeling career, Karolina made her acting debut in 2007’s “My Sexiest Year,” and in 2009’s “GI Joe: The Rise of the Cobra,” she portrayed Courtney A. Kreiger/Cover Girl. She’s served as a judge on the American and German versions of “America’s Next Top Model” on television.
In her personal life, Karolina Kurkova married Archie Drury in 2009, with whom she has a son, and as of late 2015, is expecting a second child; they presently live in New York. Karolina’s hypothyroidism has wreaked havoc on her weight, but it doesn’t seem to have hampered her professional life. Karolina is also a well-known humanitarian; she has won several honors for improving children’s lives.
