Daniela was born on October 14, 1970, in Teplice, Czechoslovakia. Daniela is a stunning international super model, at 5’11” with blonde hair and blue eyes, she looks like the all-American girl. She grew up in the presence of the Iron Curtain where there wasn't much of hope of having a successful life. Daniela had the dream of attending a college and getting her degree in Education However she (and the rest of the world) was lucky enough to be in the right spot at the right time. She had plans of attending college and majoring in Education. However that all changed when she was discovered in Prague by Dominique Caffin of the Madison modeling agency at age 19. He convinced her to enter a modeling contest and she won. She was then taken to Paris to sign on with his agency.
In 1990 Daniela's looks were admired 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 llen 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. She graced the covers of Cosmopolitan, Elle, Marie Claire and Glamour soon after. She then landed a huge contract with L'Oréal, becoming a spokesperson and print model. She also began a long-running relationship with Victoria's Secret.
Daniela feels the most professional achievement that she is proud of is her appearance in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue in 1995. Daniela says that after her modeling career she plans to settle into family life and have more children, and maybe become a translator. She currently lives in the Hamptons and also has a house in Miami. Daniela has her own annual swimsuit calendar. It's is evident that Daniela's beauty has endured through time and she is going to be gracing the covers of magazines for years to come.
Daniela personally feels that she has had many great accomplishments. However the two most important to her are marrying her husband, Tomasso Buti, and having their child, Yannick Fausto.
In her spare time she enjoys walking on the beach with her dogs (two Jack Russell terriers, Tino and Soda). She especially enjoys this when it is cold and not crowded 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 chocolates and sweets however has a weakness for bread.
