Kristy Hinze (born 16 October 1979), now known as Kristy Hinze-Clark, is an Australian model, actress and television host.
Kristy has appeared in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue and Calendar as well as the Victoria's Secret catalogue.

Kristy is from Sydney, Australia. She is connected, being related to politicians and such, and so was asked at the tender age of 14 to appear in Australian Vogue.
Kristy Hinze later appeared on the tenth season of "America's Next Top Model," and also hosted her own similar show in Australia, "Project Runway Australia," for a couple of seasons.
Getting on television allowed people to hear her distinctive Australian accent, which surprised some people.
According to Kristy:
"My accent isn't too broad, like most Queenslanders. But yes, I do have to talk a little slower so people can understand what I am saying."
Kristy has had many covers, beginning with that first Australian Vogue cover in January 1995:
- Australia: 'Vogue' - January & April 1995; 'Cleo' - May 1996; 'Cleo' - June & December 1997; 'Cleo' - February 1998; 'Cleo' - July & October 1999; 'Vogue' - June 1999; 'GQ' - September 2004; 'Vogue' - December 2007; 'Who' - August 04 2008; 'Shape' - April 2010
- Spain: 'Man' - June 2009
- UK: 'Cosmopolitan' - September, November 1999; 'New Woman' - January 2000; 'Cosmopolitan' - May 2001; 'New Woman' - May 2001; 'Cosmopolitan' - October 2002
- US: 'Zest' - August 2000; 'Shape' - April & November 2001; 'Shape' - December 2001
Kristy was in the 2000 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition, and also on the cover of its calendar and in the 'Sports Illustrated Knockouts: Five Decades of Swimsuit Photography' book.
Kristy does a little acting on the side, providing the spice in Marc Anthony's 'Muy Dentro De Mi' music video and in the film 'Boys and Girls'.
Kristy is married to Jim Clark of Netscape and they have a daughter named Dylan Vivienne. Kristy is retired from modelling, though she does still make occasional appearances in the tabloids.
For instance, while racing their boat in the Caribbean in April 2017, Kristy was spotted on the yacht having dinner with actor Orlando Bloom. They were "enjoying each other's company." Jim Clark was having dinner with them too, of course, so this is just evidence that it doesn't take much to titillate the paparazzi and create a story out of nothing.
The Clarks also made the trades for selling their massive Florida home on Palm Beach, Il Palmetto, for well over $100 million. Among other things, the mansion boasts a private tunnel under the highway to the beach. Assuming a successful sale anywhere near the original asking price, this means making a profit - that's profit - of well over $100 million.
Well, all we can say about all that is... must be nice. Must be nice indeed!
