petra-pic.jpgNot only is Petra Nemcová  a drop dead stunning, gorgeous supermodel, but she is also a survivor and that makes her a huge "it" girl.

At the top of all her other achievements is her new charity: Happy Hearts Fund which provides aid to schoolchildren. She set up the charity after he nearly died in the 2004 tsunami – which did take the life of her fiance. Nemcová suffered a broken pelvis and internal injuries, but she still held onto a palm tree for 8 hours until rescue. Glamour magazine recently awarded Nemcová a "Survivor Award" for the tsunami ordeal.

Her ‘model’ props include…

  • 2006 Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue.
  • 2007 British FHM calendar as Miss May.
  • Host of TLC’s A Model Life.

And if that wasn’t enough…she also wrote Love Always, Petra (2005) about her early life under Communist rule in Czechoslovakia, her entrance into the field of fashion and modeling, and her breakthrough into Sports Illustrated, which was her springboard to becoming a supermodel.
