Sexy certainly has no expiration date.
Paulina Porizkova continues to be one of the poster women for body positivity among women who are over the age of 50.
The stunning model, 56, shared a video of herself on Monday wearing a blazer with nothing underneath except a pair of black underwear and a gold necklace for her LA Mag shoot.
In the clip, the Swedish beauty appeared care-free while dancing to the Bee Gee’s “Staying Alive,” whipping her long, blonde locks around. She then wrote in the caption, “Just put some Bee Gees on and I can’t help dancing. And in this case, strutting my stuff for @lamag.”
Porizkov shared that she was able to feel “fun” and “relaxed” in part due to her female photographer Jill Greenberg.
“It always helps to be photographed by a woman when you’re at you most vulnerable- whether physically or emotionally naked.😉,” she said, adding the hashtags #betweenJLoandBettyWhite #sexyhasnoexpirationdate #lovetheageyourin #graypride.
Porizkova then said of her shoot’s soundtrack, “Ironically, ‘staying alive’ is exactly what we’re fortunate enough to do as we age. Carpe diem!”
Although her body is age-defying — Porizkova is still human — and when how her feet were doing while she bopped around the shoot in high heels, she responded, “They hurt!”
On Tuesday, the Sports Illustrated model proudly revealed on her Instagram an un-retouched version of the photo that was chosen for her LA Mag cover.
She candidly captioned the nude pic, “No, I dont walk along around looking this fab on a normal day. This look took two hours of professional make up and hair. And body makeup. And excellent lighting by an talented photographer. But the result is me looking my best- with no retouching and no filters and no anything else.”
Porizkov previously opened up to Page Six Style about her views on ageism.
She told us, “I think we’ve made enormous strides in accepting all different sorts of beauty; I think size and color and all of these things that used to be so uniform now have broadened to a pretty spectacular [degree] … But age, ageism, that’s kind of like the last frontier.”
Despite displaying a sunny disposition on most days, Porizkov recently shared a more vulnerable moment when she posted a crying selfie of herself following her split from boyfriend Aaron Sorkin.
“I’m here because I’m trying to exorcise my shame,” she said of the photo. “I post thoughts and emotions that I’m ashamed of. I am ashamed that I’m am grieving, heartbroken and sad. I am ashamed that I am needy. I am ashamed that I’m aging.”
The model concluded, “Sharing them is making them less shameful and in return, I gain acceptance of who I am. The authentic me. Not the one I would like to sell you.”
Porizkov has openly dealt with even more heartbreak in recent years. She split in 2017 from her husband of nearly 30 years, Cars lead singer Ric Ocasek, with whom she shared two sons. The musician then died two years later at age 75.
