Paulina Porizkova, 58, Poses in Silver Paint for Elle Czech Cover: ‘Nothing to Hide’

Paulina Porizkova, the iconic supermodel, graces the November cover of Elle Magazine’s Czech edition in a striking and bold photoshoot. The 58-year-old model appears topless, with nothing but silver paint artfully covering her chest, exuding confidence and strength.

Draped in black unbuttoned slacks, Porizkova stands with her hands in her pockets, gazing intently into the camera. Her gray hair is worn straight, and her makeup is minimal, save for a bold berry lipstick. The Czech-born beauty shared the cover on her Instagram, expressing the profound meaning behind the “special” photoshoot. She emphasized that her power does not come from the nudity itself but from the ability to present herself authentically.

“This is where my power lies,” Porizkova wrote. “Not the nudity per se, but the ability to show myself as I am.” She described the silver paint as an “armor” that symbolizes strength and protection. Porizkova reflected on her upbringing, explaining that she was raised in a culture where nudity was accepted as a natural part of being human. This perspective shaped her comfort with her body and her belief that choosing to undress can be a powerful act.

Porizkova elaborated, “I was never made to feel ashamed of an unclothed body, mine or anyone else’s. So perhaps it stands to reason that as long as it is MY choice to undress, it actually makes me feel strong. It makes me feel like I have nothing to hide.”

The model took to Instagram to delve deeper into the significance of the shoot. In her post, she described the silver paint as akin to “an armor” that “deflects darkness and reflects light” while allowing her to “feel everything.” Although the photoshoot made her feel powerful, Porizkova admitted that she does not always feel this way. “This is the woman I’d like to become,” she wrote. “The one who claims her space without apologies, without guilt, without shame, and – with or without clothes.”

Porizkova’s boyfriend, Jeff Greenstein, who has been dating her since earlier this year, supported her during the shoot. She recounted asking him how he felt seeing her so exposed. Greenstein’s response was affirming: “You were the most powerful person in the room.”

Fans flooded Porizkova’s Instagram with praise for her bravery and authenticity. Comments highlighted her strength and confidence. One fan wrote, “You look like a warrior. The battle has been loving and losing and the fact that you kept fighting. You are a warrior.” Another commented, “Just so POWERFUL! What draws my attention the most isn’t the nudity but the confident strong look on your face!! . . . No apologies ever for your choices EVER. Love and Hugs.”

Porizkova’s vulnerability and openness resonated with many. “It actually makes me feel strong. It makes me feel like I have nothing to hide,” she continued. A third fan added, “I love this and everything you stand for. I admire you for so many reasons but especially the way you have the courage to speak out about so much that needs to be seen and heard.”

This isn’t the first time Porizkova has confidently shown off her body. She celebrated her 58th birthday in April by posting a nude photo of herself lying in bed, partially covered by sheets and cuddling a stuffed animal. Known for her boldness, she also posed topless in tiny black underwear in January 2022 and went topless on a beach a month prior.

When not sharing powerful images, Porizkova often posts about her relationship with Greenstein. She was previously married to Ric Ocasek, the lead singer of the Cars, for nearly 30 years until his passing in September 2019. Following his death, she briefly dated screenwriter Aaron Sorkin in the spring of 2021.

Paulina Porizkova continues to inspire and empower with her fearless approach to aging and body positivity. Her latest Elle Czech cover is a testament to her enduring strength, beauty, and unapologetic authenticity.
