Paulina Porizkova Marks Birthday with Gold Bikini Photo: ‘Hey, I’m a good 55-year-old!’
Supermodel, Paulina Porizkova celebrated her 55th birthday in lockdown, and she looked stunning!
The Czech-born beauty marked her birthday, yesterday, April 9 by posting a few photos taken from her trip to Costa Rica less than two months ago. The photo shows the mother of two grown sons showing off her toned figure in a flashy gold bikini. This will be her first birthday since the death of estranged husband, Ric Ocasek in September.
The supermodel took to her Instagram page to share a throwback photo of herself wearing a gold bikini. Despite a successful career where she’s graced the pages of top magazine covers, the Her Alibi star admitted she’s that she hasn’t always liked her appearance, but she was determined to ‘feel pretty today’ .
Although she has been a famous model since the early 1980s, the former Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue model admitted she didn’t always realize her beauty.
“I’m now 55, and I have gone through half a lifetime only liking the way I look in retrospect,” Porizkova shared. “I look at old photos and realize how good I had it. So today, I am looking at myself (in an admittedly flattering photo) and think, ‘Hey, I’m a good 55-year-old!’ I will feel pretty today. And endlessly grateful for all the gifts life has bestowed on me thus far. They’ve been many. Quarantine is a great time to sift through them all.”
Paulina has been on quarantined in her home country country, Czech Republic with her sons Oliver and Jonathan, her dog Ludwig, and her cat.
Her post earned raves from followers, including fellow supermodel icon Christie Brinkley. And when one fan asked the birthday girl how she stays in shape, Porizkova shared her secret: “Lots of exercise. After this quarantine thing I’m gonna have a hell of a time gluing it all back.”
The gold bikini post comes just weeks after Porizkova shared a topless snapshot from her Costa Rica trip.
