Who says that all supermodels are perfect? We must admit that every beautiful supermodel we have met is down to earth. Everyone was talking about Victoria's Secret model Karolina Kurkova's missing belly button.
It has been revealed that the 24 year old stunner lost her belly button after having surgery due to a childhood illness. At first glance it kind of looked like Karolina was starring in an episode of sci-fi drama Kyle XY. Karolina was recently involved in a scandal when she was criticized during Sao Paolo Fashion Week and called "fat" due to back fat and cellulite after a runway show.
Karolina's perfect "innie" belly button is photoshopped and added to photos. We did notice while watching a video montage of Karolina's Victoria's Secret runway appearances that her midsection is often covered with a high waisted belt or corset to hide the missing belly button.
Despite the supermodel's flaws E! has voted Karolina Kurkova as the sexiest woman in the world. The Victoria's Secret fashion show airs on CBS Dec. 3, 2008. Congrats to Karolina!

Supermodels were the big winners on E!'s list. Israeli model Bar Rafaeli, who’s been romantically linked to Hollywood mega-star Leonardo DiCaprio, took second place.

The case of the missing belly button is solved!
Victoria's Secret model Karolina Kurkova- who was voted E! entertainment's World's Sexiest Woman Friday - can finally squash those rumors about her curiously vanishing bellybutton.
"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.
The condition is a fairly common in infants, Schulman said. Usually a portion of the intestine has popped through the abdominal muscles, causing an oversized "outie."
"Most people have them fixed, because you should have any hernias fixed," Schulman said.
That analysis could dispel rumors suggested that Kurkova had a vanity surgery. The media frenzy over the barely-there navel has stoked rumors that run the gamut of stories of a tummy tuck gone awry to suggestions that Kurkova was simply born sans button.
Dr. Schulman is quick to quash the latter: "It's not accurate to say that someone just does not have a belly button." source
