Paulina Porizkova is aging gracefully.
The supermodel celebrated her 58th birthday Sunday with a nude snap, which left little to the imagination.
“I begin my 58th year with nothing but sunshine and a smile,” she captioned the Instagram post Monday, which showed her holding a stuffed animal while laying in bed with a white sheet strategically covering her.
“And the hope that the best is yet to come, and nothing but gratitude for all that has brought me here to the now,” she went on.
She also added the hashtags, “#thisis58 #nofilter #betweenjloandbettywhite #greypride”
“Thank you all so much for the birthday wishes!
Although twenty hours of my birthday were spent traveling- it was SO worth it,” Porizkova continued.
“Total bonus points for anyone who can figure out the toy reference😉,” she concluded the caption, referencing the German Käptn Blaubeer toy she was using to cover her chest.
Fans were quick to thank the Czech-born beauty for the unfiltered image, in which she proudly rocked gray hair.
“I’m 49 tomorrow and feeling a bit shaky about it … Thank-you for showing it’s not old and not past it!” one fan wrote.
A second person chimed in, “Happy happy happiest of bdays u gorgeous one. Keep inspiring the world one day at a time.”
Just one month prior, Porizkova was forced to defend a “barely clothed” lingerie photo of herself after some of her followers accused her of being “hung up on age” and “too obsessed” with her looks in the comments.
For more Page Six you love …
She clapped back, writing that older women were “still sexy and viable, and certainly not invisible.”
“What is truly sad here are the obvious insecurities of women who cannot find space to love themselves for who they are,” she continued.
“For what their bodies can do. For what they can feel.”
Porizkova even started a #nofilter movement in 2021 after her photoshop-free, “full-frontal nude” Vogue Czechoslovakia cover went viral.
“The more I posted the reality and the real me, the more people responded to it,” she told Page Six Style at the time.
“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],” Porizkova continued.
“But age, ageism, that’s kind of like the last frontier.”
