Known For: Covered the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue (2003), Face of Fortunoff Jewelry, Rampage, Hewlett-Packard-computers, and Anne Taylor's fragrance Possibilities
Excuse Nemcova for not always being in the spotlight when it comes to modeling, she's a bit busy trying to save the world. She started Happy Hearts Fund, after the Tsunami of 2004, which killed her fiance and left her holding onto the top of a palm tree for eight hours before she was rescued with a broken pelvis.
Her organization sent 100% of donations to children who were affected by the tsunami and helped ensure them housing, food, and education. She and her charity also helped victims of Hurricane Katrina and the 2007 Peru earthquake.
