Petra entered the world of modeling by chance, as she was scouted on the streets of Prague by the Next Model Management modeling agency. In 1995, 16-year old Petra won Czech Elite Model Look fashion modeling competition, after which she moved to one of the world’s high fashion capitals – Milan, Italy – where she officially began her professional modeling career.

As a model, Petra was featured in advertising campaigns for brands such as, apart from those already mentioned above, Graff, United Colors Of Benetton, Cortefiel, Intimissimi, La Perla as well as Dirk Bikkembers, Wild Orchid and John Lewis. She has also collaborated and advertised products from brands like Hewlett Packard, Schwarzkopf and Pantene Pro-V. It is certain that all these engagements dramatically increased the total of Petra Nemcova’s net worth.

Petra has also appeared on the covers of several international magazines, including Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue editions five years in a row, between 2002 and 2006, as well as Madame Figaro, Shape, Marie Claire, Sports Illustrated and FHM. Doubtlessly, all these ventures have helped Petra Nemcova to build a successful modeling career, crowned with an impressive amount of wealth.

In the early 2000s, Petra collaborated with high fashion designers such as Matthew Williamson, Gugliemo Cappone, Michino Koshino and Lolita Lempicka among several others. In 2001, she made some efforts towards acting and her on-camera career, when she appeared in the “Absolutely Fabulous” TV series. In 2004, she served as one of the telecast judges at the Miss Universe competition, while in 2007 she hosted “A Model Life” reality TV show aired on TLC. Apart from all these, in 2005 Petra released her official autobiography entitled “Love Always, Petra”. All these ventures have helped Petra to further increase her net worth.

When it comes to her personal life, Petra was briefly engaged to English actor Jamie Belman. In 2004, while vacationing in Thailand with her fiancé, photographer Simon Atlee, Petra survived the catastrophic tsunami. She spent almost eight hours hanging from a tree, suffering from a broken pelvis and several internal injuries, before she was rescued, while her fiancé was drowned. Between 2014 and 2015, Petra was in a relationship with Laurent Lamothe, a former Prime Minister of Haiti.

In 2005, Petra Nemcova founded Happy Hearts Fund – a charity organization focused on helping the tsunami victims as well as various children programs primarily in disaster struck regions.

Quotes

#Quote
1(On the tsunami experience): I've learned a couple of things. And one of the things I have learned is that every experience has pluses and minuses. If we focus on the minuses, we go down the spiral. But if we are able to focus on the pluses, we can become stronger and put more meaning into our life. So, we have choice, and sometimes it seems very hard, but the best way to heal physically or emotionally is to keep positive.
2I love to dance. I can dance for, like, four or five hours nonstop without even drinking water. It's a beautiful, beautiful thing.
