Daniela Pestova was born in Teplice, Czech Republic on October 14, 1970 and is a Czech supermodel. She was was discovered by the Madison Modeling Agency's Dominique Caffin. She had plans to attend college but after winning a modelling contest she moved to Paris to sign with Madison Modeling Agency.

In 1990 Daniela was spotted by Paul Marciano, president and creative director of GUESS?, Inc. He has a reputation for picking out the yet undiscovered faces that will become the supermodels of today. She then participated in some of the most memorable GUESS? campaign advertisements in the history of the company. She was photographed along side Claudia Schiffer and the photos were taken by Allen Von Unwerth in Morocco. All this in only one year after leaving her homeland.

In 1992, without speaking a word of English but fluent in Italian, Russian, French and Czech, she moved to New York where she graced the covers of Cosmopolitan, Elle, Marie Claire and Glamour. She then landed a very large contract with L'Oréal, becoming their spokesperson and print model. She also began a long-running relationship with Victoria's Secret.

In her spare time she enjoys walking on the beach with her dogs (two Jack Russell terriers) when it is cold and uncrowded because it gives herself a chance to "get herself together". She considers herself a health freak and tries to stay in the best shape she can. She has no trouble staying away from sweets but admits to a weakness for bread.

This stunning 5'11" blue-eyed blonde has appeared on the covers of GQ, Marie Claire, Cosmopolitan, Glamour and ELLE. She has been modelling for the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue for many years and has appeared on the cover three times, in 1995, 2000 and 2006. She has also modelled for L'Oréal and Victoria's Secret. Pestova married Tomasso Buti (former CEO of Fashion Café) in 1995, but they were divorced in 1998. The couple had a son together, Yannick Fausto (b. 1996). She has also a daughter, Ella (b. July 21, 2002), with her present partner, Slovak singer Pavol Habera. She has been dubbed "The Chameleon" for continuously changing her look.
