AceShowbiz - Paulina Porizkova has left little to the imagination. The model, who is the first Central European woman to be featured on Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue magazine cover, went daring as she went topless in a new photo.
On Tuesday, November 28, the 58-year-old model/actress uploaded via Instagram a picture from a photoshoot for the November cover of Elle Magazine's Czech edition. In the photo, she ditched her top and only covered her chest with silver paint. While going topless, she donned a pair of black pants, which were left unbuttoned.
Paulina could be seen striking a pose while standing up in front of a camera. Flaunting her long white hair with black tresses, she placed both of her hands inside the pockets of her trousers. For the photoshoot, she added full makeup, including, red lipstick, black eyeliner and pink blush on her cheeks.
Along with the picture, Paulina defended showing off her "unclothed body" in the caption of the post. She began writing, "I have done many covers this year I'm very proud of, but this one is special. Yes, I'm topless; but the silver paint on my skin is like an armor. The silver deflects darkness and reflects light - but allows me to feel everything."
The former "America's Next Top Model" judge went on to share, "I was brought up in a culture and time where nudity was common and absolutely accepted as a part of being human. I was never made to feel ashamed of an unclothed body, mine or anyone else's."
Paulina further explained, "So perhaps it stand 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. This is where my power lies. Not the nudity per se, but the ability to show myself as I am."
The "As the World Turns" alum recalled, "After this shoot, I asked my love, Jeff, how it made him feel to see me so exposed on a set. 'You were the most powerful person in the room,' he replied. And that is what I see in this photo. A woman who is not ashamed for being exactly who she is. A woman who refuses to be shamed."
Paulina additionally noted, "I do not feel like this woman every day." She then declared, "But this is the woman I'd like to become. The one who claims her space without apologies, without guilt, without shame, and - with or without clothes."
