Petra Nemcova, the Great Philanthropist, Model, Humanitarian, Beauty Got Married Last Week and No One Noticed


One of my all time favorite people, Petra Nemcova, finally got married. The great beauty didn’t wait for me! No, seriously, the lucky guy was Ben Larretche, they’ve known each other for about three years. They tied the knot August 2nd in Sedona, Arizona with little fanfare, very Petra style. Mucho congrats!

Petra has been engaged three times in the past, most famously and sadly to Simon Atlee, who died in the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami. Since then, Petra has become a world class philanthropist and activist, building schools and helping children in all parts of the world. She is quite remarkable.

But now maybe she can take a break and focus on herself. She deserves it!
