The gorgeous Karolina Kurkova gets a run on the cover of British Elle's November '08 cover. And I for one, am delighted to see the Victoria's Secret model take the top spot. It hasn't been an easy year for Kurkova, the poor lass was attacked by the Brazilian press for her weight at Sao Paulo Fashion Week in June. At the Cia Maritima show, Karolina was unfairly criticised for showing "back fat, love handles and cellulite" while wearing a bikini down the runway. I hope those reporters are eating their words right now, because girlfriend looks fierce on this cover. Hawt!
