New Shots of Paulina Porizkova’s Ethereal Lingerie: Instagram – SheKnows
Paulina Porizkova took our breath away this morning with a collage of ethereal Old Hollywood lingerie photos taken in and around her gorgeous home, which she shared on her Instagram.
Porizkova posted four images, including one of the cover of her upcoming book, No filter: the good, the bad and the beautiful
. In one photo, she is seen dressed in a retro outfit and black thigh-high stockings, sitting on the edge of her dining room table while gracefully leaning on one arm.
Another photo shows her posing in a private yard wearing the same outfit, this time with the blanket tied loosely around her waist and draped over one shoulder. Underneath, she’s wearing a gorgeous full-coverage black lace bra with matching black underwear, and she has her tongue playfully sticking out for the camera.
Another photo is captured over Porizkova’s shoulder in a golden mirror, where she is seen holding what looks like a sheet to her chest while looking into the camera lens. The final image shows the cover of her book, in which she poses in front of a dressing table, her hands crossed under her chin, looking graceful in silky briefs.
The 57-year-old Swedish model touched on the photo shoot in her caption, writing, “All these photos were taken by a young woman named Adeline Lulo. She came to my house alone armed with a single small camera bag to photograph me for the @nytimes a year ago.
Porizkova continued, “I did my makeup and my hair myself, and we spent less than two hours shooting in and around my apartment,” admitting, “Honestly, when I first saw her, my brain got totally old – she’s a young, pretty woman, and I thought ‘Hey, it’s really more about the interview than the pictures. I know how to do my job, I’m going to make it easy for her .
The model went on to write, “During our photoshoot I kept pulling stuff out of my closet – having no clear idea what I wanted to look like – and Adeline just followed and photographed it all real journalist style – just witness me.
Then Porizkova became quietly self-aware, sharing, “When the photos came out, I was more than pleasantly surprised. I was a little shocked by their quality. A really good reminder that ageism goes both ways – and I just learned something new about myself.
The model respectfully concluded: “Thank you Adeline; your talent made me humble, which I needed. I thought I was going to be the teacher here – and you totally turned it around. I’m really lucky to have been your subject.
Porizkova then teased her next book, writing, “My book is available for pre-order at your favorite bookstore now!” No filter
is a memoir in essays about Porizkova’s reflections on “the complexities of womanhood at every age”. The model shares the lessons she’s learned and explores “heartbreak, grief, beauty, aging, relationships, reinvention and finding your purpose.” The essay compilation is released on November 15, 2022.
