Eva is from Litvinov, Czech Republic. She won a 1989 modeling contest in Prague that she entered on a whim at the age of 16.

Someone spotted her whilst she was on vacation and suggested that she enter the contest - this got her signed by the sponsoring firm, Madison.

This signing led Eva to Paris, where she gradually picked up admirers.

She really gained attention, and some corresponding notoriety, when she posed for the first Wonderbra campaign in 1994.

This Wonderbra campaign was extremely controversial at the time, as it featured Eva in provocative poses that suggested a little too much sex appeal for some viewers.

Eva's 'Hello Boys' ad, with some regional variants such as 'G'Day Boys,' has entered the annals of advertising as one of the most influential posters of the 20th Century.

Eva has a slew of covers down through the years, and she still gets them - which is a testament to her longevity.

Eva has been in a number of mostly foreign films, including 'Inferno' (1992), 'Modigliani' (2004) and 'Pohádkár' (2014). She remains registered with Czechoslovak Models Prague, D'management group Milan, Marilyn Agency Paris, One Management New York, and Storm Model London.

The story goes that famed director Stanley Kubrick wanted Eva in his final (as it turned out) film, "Eyes Wide Shut" (2000). However, Eva turned it down because she thought there was too much nudity. That certainly didn't dent the career of the lovely Eva Herzigova, though.
