Christian Karenbeau must have been a nightmare to be around in 1998. If he wasn’t off winning World Cups with France or European Cups with Real Madrid, he was marrying Victoria’s Secret model Adriana Sklenaříková. However, whilst Christian Karembeau gets to hang out with his ludicrously beautiful wife and live a rich and happy life, technically, the jokes on him, because we can all sit at home and Google her. Hurrah!
The former Middlesbrough midfielder met Miss. Adriana Sklenaříková on an aeroplane in 1996, and the pair were married just two years later. Now that’s definitely not fair. Whenever I board an aircraft, you can guarantee that if there’s a screaming baby or obese heavy breather, I’ll be the chump sat next to them (apologies for being ageist/fattist/fascist). However, perhaps that’s because supermodels do not frequent economy flights on easyJet?
Adriana Sklenaříková was born in Brezno, Czechoslovakia (now Slovakia), on 17 September 1971. Although a famous model today, in 1989 Adriana went to Prague to study medicine at Charles University, only deciding to pursue a career in modelling after being scouted on the street in 1992.
Adriana is now famous worldwide, having appeared in countless magazines, fashion shows and advertising campaigns, such as Wonderbra and Victoria’s Secret. Mrs. Karembeau is also renowned for her stature- she stands at 6’1’ tall and her legs (49.5 inches/124 centimetres) were once listed in the Guinness Book of World Records as the longest legs belonging to a supermodel.
Whilst Adriana could sit back with her World Cup winning husband and discuss at large how great it is to be rich and beautiful, Adriana involves herself in charity work for the Red Cross, and Slovakian charity Magna, a foundation to help children with AIDS in Cambodia.
Singlehandedly disproving the time honoured belief that models are simply anorexic airheads, let us celebrate Miss. Adriana Karembeau by perusing some lovely pictures of the 38 year old Slovakian, meanwhile cursing Christian Karembeau for his damned good fortune!
