Paulina Porizkova, a former icon of the modeling industry, recently sparked a whirlwind of controversy when she fearlessly shared a series of captivating bikini snapshots on her social media platform. But, rather than succumbing to the negativity, the woman took this opportunity to deliver a resounding message that reverberated throughout the digital landscape, championing the values of body positivity and self-love in a truly empowering manner.

Her career started at a young age.

Paulina Porizkova was born in 1965 and began her modeling career at the age of 15. Porizkova has graced the covers of numerous high-profile magazines. In addition to her modeling work, Porizkova has also appeared in several films, TV shows, and music videos. In recent years, she has become known for her candid and insightful writing on topics ranging from beauty standards to grief and loss.

Unafraid to challenge societal norms, Paulina fearlessly raises her voice against ageism.

At 57 years old, Porizkova fearlessly challenges societal expectations by persisting in her modeling career and fearlessly sharing bikini-clad photos on social media. Unapologetically defying ageist prejudices, she candidly expresses, “I am a 57-year-old woman, and it appears that in society when you enter middle age, you’re somehow deemed unworthy of donning a bikini.”

Moreover, Porizkova fearlessly confronts the derogatory comments hurled her way, including being labeled a “desperate grandma” or deemed “too old for such endeavors.”

Porizkova was married to Ric Ocasek, the late frontman of the iconic rock band The Cars, for 28 years. In an interview, Porizkova revealed that their relationship had its ups and downs and that they had been estranged for several months before his passing in 2019. She spoke candidly about the challenges they faced, saying, “I just noticed that we shared less and less, and we communicated less, and then he sort of stopped desiring me.”

Porizkova also shared that she had doubts about her own aging, saying, “Since I was hitting my late 40s and early 50s, I think I figured, maybe he doesn’t fancy me because I’m getting older.” Despite these difficulties, she still emphasized the love and connection that they shared and has continued to honor Ocasek’s memory since his passing.

She advocates for women to embrace the journey of growing older.

Her voice resounds passionately as she champions the cause of wholeheartedly embracing the natural evolution of growing older. Defying societal pressures, Porizkova has chosen to forgo the path of plastic surgery or cosmetic enhancements, boldly declaring, “My yearning is to exist as an unaltered older woman.”

In her poetic reflection, she tenderly expresses admiration for the physical markers of time, sharing, “What I like about my face now at 57, it’s that it’s like a really good novel of the history of my life like it’s all written into my face.”

In addition to her personal choices, Porizkova has also emphasized the importance of changing society’s attitudes toward aging. She has called for more women to embrace their age and showcase their accomplishments, saying, “We have to make older cool, I’m really trying, but we need more women to sort of embrace age and keep trumpeting it out there, going ’look at what I’m doing at my age.’”

In her relentless pursuit of empowering women, Porizkova extends her advocacy beyond personal decisions and directs her focus towards a broader goal: transforming society’s perceptions and attitudes surrounding the aging process.

Porizkova’s impassioned plea for societal change resonates with an unwavering belief that every individual, regardless of age, deserves to be celebrated, respected, and fully embraced for the unique journey they have embarked upon.

Old women, with their years of wisdom and life experiences, possess a remarkable strength that allows them to embrace aging with grace and wisdom. They stand tall, learning to appreciate the beauty that lies within themselves and maintaining their youthful appearance.

She's absolutely gorgeous and 100% right! I'm a 62 year old grandmother and still wear a bikini. The great thing about getting older is that you really don't care what people think.
