The 33-year-old blonde, who has modelled for Victoria's Secret, Chanel and Marc Jacobs and hosted reality TV show Holland's "Next Top Model", suffered a fractured skull and vertebrae in the accident off the coast of the Italian island of Ischia and had to be airlifted to a hospital in Naples, reported People magazine.
