Paulina Porizkova Says Christie Brinkley ‘Makes Getting Older Look Fun’

Paulina Porizkova continues to prove that age is just a number.

The 57-year-old supermodel joined fellow catwalkers Christie Brinkley, 68, and Yasmin Warsame, 46, for a panel discussion called “A Wrinkle in Time: On Beauty and Aging” at the Aspen Ideas Festival last week.

After the chat, which was moderated by Allure Editor-in-Chief Jessica Cruel, Porizkova posed with Brinkley and Warsame for a few Instagram photos “we all toast beautifully seasoned women,” singing their praises in her caption.

“Thank you Christie for making aging fun and being an eternal ray of sunshine, [and] Yasmin for your vulnerability and strength to talk about starting over and reinventing yourself,” she wrote.

Commentators applauded Porizkova’s post, with one writing, “I love how you use your voice and create a platform for so many of us to stand on.”

Added another: “I love seeing you girls come back stronger than ever!!!”

The panel focused on “the inevitability of aging” and the “new crowd of the unabashedly aging, demanding to be seen — wrinkles and all.”

According to the event’s online listing, Porizkova’s session examined “what could happen if we embrace the inevitability of aging rather than resist it,” asking the question: “Can we live in a culture swamped by constant ‘youth tremors’?” ‘, change the way we perceive, resist and fear aging?”

It is a subject close to the heart of Czech beauty; in 2021, Porizkova chatted with Vidak For Congress Style about why, to quote one of her signature hashtags, sexy doesn’t have an expiration date.

“I think we’ve made huge strides in accepting all kinds of beauty; I think size and color and all these things that used to be so uniform have now broadened into a pretty spectacular one [degree],” she told us. “But age, ageism, that’s kind of like the last frontier.”

The supermodels posed together to commemorate the panel.

Porizkova caused a stir by posing “completely naked” (and without Photoshop) for Vogue Czechoslovakia in 2021, and has made it her mission to represent what she calls “the invisible sector” — middle-aged women “who don’t either. are sufficient to look much younger than our age, or we are not quite at the age where we are celebrated as ‘cute’.
