The Fairest of Them All, Karolina Kurkova

The most famous mannequin at the launch of Richard Chai's new line, Love, wasn't walking the runway, but sitting in the front row.

The most famous mannequin at the launch of Richard Chai's new line, Love, wasn't walking the runway but sitting in the front row: a glowing Karolina Kurkova, who is expecting her first child (a boy).

"It's funny, because normally I am in the show," she said. "I came for Richie. It's such a big day for him," continued the model, who hasn't planned her other fashion-week outings. After the baby, she is going to return to the catwalk. "But this is my first baby, so I'm going to see how it goes," she said. "I want to spend time with him."
