Every day at Starpulse we upload some of the most discerning and extraordinary photos of gorgeous looking ladies from all across the world. Today's beautiful and enchanting target is Petra Nemcova.

Petra was born on June 24th, 1979, in Karvina in the Czech Republic.

The hazel eyed beauty began her career in 1995 at age fifteen, when she won the Czech Elite model contest.  

The Five-foot-ten-inch model has done work for Benetton, Cosmopolitan and Glamour as well as Victoria's Secret. However, she is best known for her 2003 Sports illustrated Swimsuit cover issue.  

Her television resume includes a guest appearance on Absolutely Fabulous and she participated in season twelve of Dancing with the Stars, where she placed eighth in the contest.

While vacationing in Thailand in December of 2004, she and her fashion photographer boyfriend Simon Atlee were caught up in the Asian tsunami tragedy. She survived the disaster by reportedly holding on to a palm tree for over eight hours.

Petra suffered internal injuries as well as a broken pelvis and the boyfriend Simon did not survive the catastrophe. Consequently, she founded Happy Hearts Fund, a charity that aims to help victims of Tsunamis.

In December 2010, she became engaged to actor Jamie Belman, however they ended the engagement less than two years later.  The supermodel also has been romantically linked to British singer James Blunt, actor Sean Penn and Emirati businessman Badr Jafar.

Even though she doesn't have a stellar Hollywood career, we think this gorgeous chick from Czechoslovakia is deserving of some quality face-time.
