Veronica Varekova Is A Tall Drink Of Water

Veronika Vařeková is a Czech model. Her name in the English language press is often given as Veronica Varekova. She is a five-time veteran of Sports Illustrated, a regular in the Victoria’s Secret catalog, and the face of Nivea.

A native of Olomouc, Czech Republic, Veronica moved to New York City at the age of 19 to attend The Parsons School of Design. Upon arriving in Manhattan, Veronica met with Next Models at the urging of a close friend, and was signed immediately. Veronica has a degree in Psychology and Education, and is trilingual.

She has graced the covers of magazines such as Marie Claire, Harpers & Queen and Cosmopolitan, but men would probably most remember her for her work in the Victoria’s Secret catalog, stealing the spotlight from fellow goddesses Tyra Banks and Laetitia Casta and, the most coveted of all, the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue.

A successful and talented model, Veronica’s passions reach beyond the fashion industry as she is an avid painter and involved in the arts. She is also an active person, who can often be found on the golf courses, ski slopes, and tennis courts around the world.

Veronica was named one of the first Goodwill Ambassadors to the African Wildlife Foundation in October 2009; in this role, she aided in efforts to raise awareness and funds to support initiatives focused on conserving large landscapes, protecting endangered species, and empowering local communities working in AWF’s African Heartlands.
