Supermodel coach on Oxygen’s newest competition series “The Face,” Karolina Kurkova has established herself as a fashion and entertainment icon and is often called one of the last true supermodels. The Czech-born beauty has graced best-selling covers of fashion magazines worldwide, starred in numerous high-fashion campaigns, co-starred in a hit film franchise, and is producing/starring in an international reality TV series. After becoming the youngest model to grace the cover of American Vogue at age 16, and being lauded as the "next supermodel" by its famed editor Anna Wintour, Kurkova walked the runways of haute couture fashion shows including Alberta Ferretti and Alexander McQueen. In 2005, she was named one of Victoria Secret's Angels and subsequently received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2007. In 2009, Kurkova starred in the live action film “GI Joe: Rise of the Cobra” and went on to play guest-starring roles on NBC's TV series “Chuck” and “30 Rock.”
More than a gorgeous face, Kurkova is an advocate for children’s welfare and received an award from the non-profit organization "Women Together" for her work. She continues to campaign for children through organizations such as AmFar, New Yorkers for Children and Global Youth Action Network. She has also done work on behalf of the Injured Marine Semper Fi Fund and Wounded Warriors. Married in 2009, Kurkova's proudest accomplishment is the role of mom to her three year-old son, Tobin Jack.
