In recent years, unusual models that do not fit into generally accepted beauty standards or have some kind of peculiarity have been trending.

Against their background, the Czech supermodel Karolina Kurkova can consider herself quite ordinary. She just doesn't have... a navel.

If you think that all people must have a navel, then you are mistaken. There are at least two cases when it may be missing. The first is an operation to remove an umbilical hernia. In some cases, it leads to the elimination of this not too important, but noticeable "accessory". The second case is gastroschisis, a congenital disease in which an infant is born with a cleft in the abdominal cavity. After surgical reconstruction, the navel may also disappear forever.

No one knows why Karolina Kurkova doesn't have a navel. The model herself prefers not to discuss this topic. At one time, there were even rumors that the navel actually exists, but it is hidden under a special makeup to give the girl an exotic look. Conversations about this began after the publication of a photo of Kurkova with a very ordinary stomach. But later it turned out that the retouchers specifically added a navel to the pictures at the request of the customer of the photo shoot.

Karolina Kurkova was born on February 28, 1984 in Czechoslovakia, in the city of Decin, near Prague. Her dad was a well-known basketball player in the country, and her mom was a housewife. Throughout her childhood, Caroline suffered because of her appearance. No, we are not talking about Kurkova's navel (although who knows), but about tall stature and skinny, long legs. The girl was teased by classmates and she was cruelly complexed.

Everything changed when Caroline was 14 years old. Then a friend, a novice photographer, asked Kurkova to pose for a photo. A friend, having played enough with the light and angles, sent the pictures to Prague, to one of the modeling agencies. And, unexpectedly for everyone, after a couple of days the answer came. In an official letter, Karolina Kurkova was invited to the casting. It was a real shock for the teenager, as she did not know that the photos had fallen into the wrong hands.

The future supermodel later recalled that she even wanted to beat her friend for arbitrariness. But then she cooled down and began to prepare for an important meeting. Caroline was very critical of her appearance, so she was very worried. She even stopped biting her nails so that she wouldn't have to blush at the selection. However, at that time luck turned away from the girl and she did not pass the selection.
