Biography and Career :

Born and raised in Karvina, Petra Nemcova has taken the modeling world by storm. Ever since a modeling scout discovered her on the streets of her native country, she seems to be plastered in every magazine layout and advertisement.

In December 2004, she and her boyfriend Simon Atlee (a British fashion photographer) were caught in the devastating Asian tsunami disaster. Their hut on the Thai beach resort of Khao Lak was swept away by the tsunami, leaving Petra Nemcova holding on to a tree for eight hours while the water washed by.Petra Nemcova was rescued and taken to a hospital to treat a broken pelvis and several internal injuries. Unfortunately, Simon Atlee is still considered missing (as of January 4, 2005).

She considers herself "lucky to be alive" and she is giving back to those who were not as lucky, by posing from her hospital bed for US Weekly as a fundraising effort that will donate $200,000 to tsunami relief efforts.

Her first interview after her near-death experience was with Diane Sawyer on ABC's Primetime Live, on March 9, 2005. Petra Nemcova has also told of her experiences on the "Larry King Live" program on CNN television.

Glamour magazine recently awarded her a "Survivor Award" for the tsunami ordeal, and how she has picked up her life since then (her comeback being complete with her appearance in the 2006 Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue).

She won the opportunity to model swimsuits for Sports Illustrated's Swimsuit Issue in 2002, which was her second appearance in the magazine. In addition to her work for SI, the Next agency model has graced the pages of Elle, Harper's Bazaar and the French model Madame Figaro, and she's a model for companies like Max Factor, La Perla and Cartier.

On June 3, 2004, Petra Nemcova was one of the telecast judges during the 53rd annual Miss Universe competition in Quito, Ecuador.

Shewrote Love Always, Petra, ISBN 0446579130, published December 2005.
