I’m not going to insult your intelligence by explaining to you who Petra Nemcova is. If you don’t remember her incredible run in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue from 2002-2007, we can’t be friends.
But enough with the brutal honesty, we’re here to celebrate the return of a champion.
Since she survived the Thailand Tsunami in 2004, Petra’s been very busy with humanitarian work. She founded The Happy Hearts Fund (a charity devoted to aiding victims of natural disasters), became an Ambassador-at-Large to Haiti, and was a contestant on the 12th season of Dancing With The Stars.
That’s all well and good, but a lot of her less globally-minded fans were probably feeling left out in the cold. What about all that modeling she became famous for?
Finally, though, Petra’s back with a new campaign for Wild Orchid lingerie.
