Former Sports Illustrated model Paulina Porizkova is back on Instagram to share some musings with her followers.
This time, she pondered why older women are complimented with masculine terms such as “elegant,” “stylish,” or “even handsome.”
As a 57-year-old woman herself, Paulina has heard a lot of these comments plenty of times, especially when she discusses the way older women are described as “Thirsty. Desperate. Hungry for attention. Pathetic” when older women choose “to celebrate their body.”
However, she revealed that she felt least attractive when she was younger and a new mother as she felt her body “belonged” to her children rather than herself.
Her new confidence in her body as she ages is clear to her followers, as she frequently shares bikini pics, swimsuit snaps and even occasionally goes nude to make a statement.
For her most recent pondering post, she went for a little bit of a lingerie and underwear theme, her picture seemingly taken when she was getting ready to go out.

Paulina’s picture is taken from behind as she sits in a cushioned chair and applies makeup while looking in the mirror in front of her.
Though blurred, she appears to have a grin on her face in the reflection.
She’s wearing a sheer black bodysuit complete with a thong cut, likely a piece worn under a different outfit, though it’s possible it’s a lingerie set.
Her long blonde locks fell behind her back in loose waves and it was clear that the model was celebrating herself as she often does.
Paulina also shared a clip of her working out lately, noting that it can be hard to stay in shape as you age.
Paulina Porizkova pumps iron to ‘stay in shape after menopause’
Paulina opened up to her followers earlier this week as she shared a short clip of herself lifting weights, she notes that she’s working to stay in shape which is a lot harder after going through menopause and “takes a lot of frickin’ work.”
Though she’s had to make changes to her workouts due to her health, Paulina seems to be rolling with the punches as her muscular definition can be seen as she lifts the weights up.
Despite the hard work she has to put in to keep her physical “outside” body in shape, she notes that “On the inside, however, all the hard work already done is finally paying off.”
Paulina Porizkova posed nude to make a point
A couple of weeks ago, Paulina posed completely naked on Instagram. She sat naked on a bed with just a bedsheet to cover her sensitive parts and asked the question, “Is it objectification or celebration?”
Paulina wrote a lengthy caption where she explained that the pic was a statement on the objectification of women. She spoke about the “patriarchal society” that condemns women when they attempt to take control of their own bodies, “For this she will be shamed and celebrated by both the perpetrators and the victims.”
The model also discussed how when she exposed herself as a younger model that was because “someone else decided it [her body] was to be celebrated.” She concluded the post, “Now, when I expose my body, it it with my full knowledge and consent. Hence celebration.”
Paulina’s post received lots of praise from her many fans in the comments section.
One fan answered Paulina’s question, “Celebration 💯 and you’re so much more beautiful now ❤️” and another wrote, “Salut you beautiful 🔥🔥🔥” while a third fan told her, “Salut you beautiful 🔥🔥🔥”
Paulina’s post has picked up over 57,000 likes from her appreciative fans.
