Six feet tall. Blond hair. Blue eyes. Former high school basketball star. Eastern Bloc native. With all the makings of a top model, it would've been foolish for Hana Soukupova to pursue anything other than the job she currently rocks. Born December 18, 1985, in Karlovy Vary, Czech Republic, the willowy teen won the prestigious Top Model of the New Millennium award, a big first step toward fame.
Soukupova made a quick beeline for the catwalk, opening and closing shows for the likes of Elie Saab, Versace, Galliano, and YSL. And her powerful yet delicate features made her an editorial star. Since her early days she's decorated the pages of countless high fashion and mainstream mags, including the American, Italian, and Japanese editions of Vogue; Harper's Bazaar; and Dazed & Confused. Soukupova's looks have also been known to sell duds for names from Gucci to Gap.
Unlike many of her peers, Hana has no desire to live the life of a party girl. Married to Drew Aaron, the towering beauty prefers a quiet New York life that includes shopping at Whole Foods, running marathons, and spending time with her dogs. When the couture catwalk veteran isn't posing for the camera, she's behind one, making her own art. Soukupova also appreciates film and often attends screenings at the Cinema Society. And while you may not have known how to pronounce this gorgeous creature's name before now, start practicing it. We think you'll be seeing her face for a long time.
