Karolina Kurkova Biography

Karolína Kurková was born on 28 February 1985, in Decin, now in the Czech Republic, into a Czech and Slovak (mother) family, and is one of the most sought-after models in the fashion world, perhaps best known for being one of Victoria’s Secret Angels from 2005-09.

So just how rich is Karolina Kukova? Sources estimate that Karolina’s net worth is over $10 million, accumulated largely from her modelling career now spanning more than 15 years, with contributions from her acting and TV appearances during the last few years.

Initially Karolina was thought too tall at 1m 80cm to be a model, but is actually sought-after because of her height and the apparently ideal proportions of her physique, as described by noted photographer Mario Testino. At the age of 15 she debuted on the catwalk, and appeared on the cover of Vogue magazine, an impressive start to her career, including her net worth.

Success continued, consistently, for Karolina, as she moved to New York in 2000, and was almost immediately chosen by Victoria’s Secret for their annual Fashion Show, then a web-cast in the USA, but extremely popular – this of course guaranteed wide exposure for the young model, and in turn a steadily rising net worth.

Subsequently Kurková signed contracts with many noted fashion houses, such as Calvin Klein, Louis Vuitton, Ralph Lauren Versace, Christian Dior, Karl Lagerfeld and Yves Saint Laurent among many others. Perhaps her crowning glory at this time was being chosen by Victoria’s Secret to wear the fantasy bra, “Star of Victoria” valued at $10 million in their 2002 Fashion Show. Of course, Karolina’s net worth was looking very healthy.

Concurrently, Karolina was also associated with many campaigns in print, for such companies as Tommy Hilfiger, Chanel, Valentino, Hugo Boss and John Galliano. Her work experience reads like a ‘who’s who’ of the fashion and jewellery industries, so it is not surprising that her net worth has benefited by as much as $6 million in several of these years.

Clearly her career was at the top of the modelling fraternity, indeed she was hardly ever out of work, in fact being praised for her work ethic by Vogue at their 2002 Fashion Awards, being named ‘Model of the Year’. If further evidence is needed of Karolina’s success, she has been featured on the covers of Vogue editions worldwide, as well as in Vanity Fair, The Face and Elle international magazine editions.

Switching to acting, Karolina debuted in 2007, in “My Sexiest Year’, and then in 2009 in“GI Joe: the Rise of the Cobra”, she played Courtney A. Kreiger/Cover Girl. On TV, she has been a judge in “America’s Next Top Model”, and similarly in the German version.

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 currently live in New York. Karolina has suffered from hypothyroidism, which plays havoc with her weight, but apparently has had little effect on her career. Karolina is also a noted philanthropist, receiving awards for her humanitarian work, in particular concerning child welfare.
