Early life

Adriana Sklenaříková was born in Brezno, a town in central Slovakia, then part of Czechoslovakia.


Having originally studied medicine in Prague, Sklenaříková gave up her studies to become a fashion model at the age of 26. She was hired as one of the models for the Wonderbra, and she was popular in Europe for her Wonderbra billboards.

In the United States, she modeled for Victoria’s Secret.

Personal life

On 22 December 1998, Sklenaříková married French football player Christian Karembeu. They had met while they were both traveling on a flight from Paris to Milan in 1996. Their marriage took place only months after the national soccer team of France had won the 1998 World Cup.

On 9 March 2011, in an interview to French magazine Paris Match, Adriana revealed that she’s separating from her husband. Adriana stated that the causes for the separation were the couple’s constant exposure in the media and their “hectic lifestyle” as well as being “upset to see photographs of [her] with other men appearing in the press and speculation that [she] had a lover”. Christian Karembeu refused questions from the media about the divorce, stating that he would not comment in public about his private life
