Karolina Kurkova was born on February 28, 1984, in Decin, Czechoslovakia which is now known as the Czech Republic. Her father, Josef Kurka, was a basketball player from the Czech Republic and her mother is from Slovakia.
Kurkova got started as a model after her friend sent photos of Kurkova to a modeling agency in Prague. She soon appeared on runways, in commercials and print advertisements. When Kurkova saw that she had what it took to work as a model, she moved to Milan, Italy, hoping to further her career.
In Milan, Kurkova met Miuccia Prada, the designer responsible for the posh brand Prada. Prada saw Kurkova's potential and signed her to a contract. By 1999, her work with Prada led her to the editors of Vogue in New York City. She soon moved to the Big Apple and steadily worked and polished herself as a model. At age 17, Kurkova caught her big career break when she appeared on the February 2001 cover of Vogue magazine.
