Paulina Porizkova, 53, Is The Supermodel Grandmother In The 2019 SI Swimsuit Issue

I am still wondering how come being a celebrity comes with eternal youth and graceful aging? Every day we’re witnessing gorgeous middle-aged celebrities who look exactly how they did 20 years ago. I’m getting some Stefan and Damon Salvatore vibes here. Truly, the only explanation I can think of is that they’re probably vampires or something. In this article, we’re not going to talk about the gorgeous 49-year-old JLo, nor the 48-year-old Kelly Ripa. But about a stunning 53-year-old supermodel instead. Follow me below.

Paulina Porizkova has also made the list of celebs who simply. do. not. age. like the rest of us earthlings. She initially appeared in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue in the year 1983. However, she has come back almost 4 decades later, after 36 years for the upcoming 2019 issue.

Although SI has become more inclusive when it comes to different body types and models – she is still surprised to see herself as the oldest one in the SI stable. The supermodel is also an actress, a feminist, and she has two sons, two grandsons, as well as step-granddaughters, nieces and goddaughters.

Paulina spoke to People magazine about the situation, admitting finding out about posing alongside 20-year-old was ‘at once thrilling and disconcerting’. She said:

Although I am militant about aging women still being sexy and beautiful, I don’t always feel that way. But refusing was out of the question. I was honored to be invited to break a barrier. I would just have to suck it up, or IN, rather, and hope for a photographer who knew his light.

The 2019 Swimsuit Issue will be out this May, and it’s fair to say – the supermodel looks truly a lot like she did 30 years back. The pictures were shot in Watamu, Kenya, by photographer Yu Tsai. She admitted having worn ‘exactly the same type of bikinis and bathing suits’ she would have 30 years ago. Last year, she posed nude in the SI Swim Issue alongside the likes of Aly Raisman, Sailor Brinkley Cook and more.
