Over the years the calendars have raised eyebrows with their provocative imagery featuring scantily clad ladies  but for the 2014 shoot the Italian tyre manufacturer has let the talent do the talking by presenting a simple image using top models  Alessandra Ambrosio, Helena Christensen, Karolina Kurkova, Alek Wek, Miranda Kerr married to Mr Bloom and a mum! and what a body she still has and Isabeli Fontana dressed in over-sized shirts and jumpers.

Karolina Kurkova the missing belly button explained

According to the Huffington post Karolina’s missing belly button can be explained by the following

Victoria’s Secret angel Karolina Kurkova surprised onlookers with her almost invisible bellybutton at last months show in Miami, but there is an explanation.

“She had an operation when she was an infant,” her rep told the Daily News. “It’s a fact and just thank God she’s healthy.”
The mystery of her strangely smooth tummy surfaced again as the Czech supermodel strutted her stuff on the runway in Miami two weeks ago.

There was simply an indentation where the center “button” should have been.

And don’t be fooled by the glossy magazine spread: though the voluptuous blond seems to have a perfect button in the pages of magazines and catalogs, industry sources have revealed that is usually the result of photo retouching.

So what belly button condition could baby Kurkova have had?

Doctors say it was likely an umbilical hernia.

“It does look like [she may have had] an umbilical hernia as a child that was either fixed or not fixed, which can distort the belly button,” said Dr. Matthew Schulman, a plastic surgeon at Manhattan’s Mount Sinai Medical Center.

Victoria’s Secret top model and one of the Angels-  Karolina Kurkova put her bombshell curves on show during a photo shoot in Miami over the weekend, but it was her odd belly button that was attracting all the attention, or lack of it, as the case might be.  The Czech blonde’s unusual navel had onlookers perplexed as she and the other Victoria Secrets models played on the beach over the weekend in a tiny white bikinis.

It’s not the first time her almost non-existent belly button has drawn attention. A source has revealed magazine and catalogue art directors routinely airbrush one in for in post-production. ‘Karolina’s body is amazing, but her belly button is unusual,’ a fashion insider told Page Six magazine. ‘It disappears in photos, so we keep a collection of belly button shots in different positions, and Photo-shop them on to her whenever she’s doing a bikini picture.’ Still, if she was at all self-conscious, she didn’t let it show as she posed up on the foreshore.

The following day she was once again strutting her stuff at the lingerie company’s catwalk extravaganza.


She was among the 35 Victoria’s Secret models to hit the runway, including Heidi Klum and Orlando Bloom’s current flame, Australian Miranda Kerr.   As I previously reported before R&B singer Usher opened the show at the Fontainebleau Miami Beach hotel where the front row was filled with stars including Paris Hilton, John Stamos, and Klum’s husband, Seal.

While her popularity shows no sign of slowing down, she hopes to cross over into acting.  She recently filmed a small part in Sienna Miller’s upcoming action move G.I. Joe Rise of the Cobra which is scheduled for release early next year.

Airbrushed belly button – Photoshop belly button added by an art director

She has featured on February 2008 cover of Esquire magazine, re-creating the classic 1966 Angie Dickinson cover on Esquire’s 75th anniversary along with fellow Victoria’s Secret Angels Adriana Lima, Izabel Goulart and Selita Ebanks.


Model.com featured her at No.5 on the list of the hottest models today. She has graced the cover of Elle magazine’s February 2008 issue kkmg

She appeared only in shoes , diamonds and gloves for the November 2007 issue of Vanity Fair celebrating 20 years of supermodels with her fellow Angels.  She is widely considered one of the sexiest women in the world and was chosen to be a part of People magazine’s 100 most beautiful people in the world, sharing that space with her fellow ‘Angels’, with whom she also received a star on the Hollywood “Walk of Fame” prior to the 2007 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show.

In the last Cia Maritima fashion show her unexpectedly heavier physique brought criticism from the Brazilian press as having “too much back fat, love handles and cellulite.   This sparked a discussion on the media, on why a woman with an average body is considered fat.  What do you think?


The media does like to dish the dirt and squash people does it not.  I think she looks great regardless of one or two bumps – get a life – size 16 is the average and she is no way near that size.  Give her a break!
