Paulina Porizkova is channeling her inner-Bond girl.
The supermodel shared a stunning slow-motion video of herself emerging from the ocean.
The clip—aptly set to Weezer’s “Island in the Sun”—shows the beach babe rocking a two-piece print bikini. As she shows off her best model walk, she reaches for her wet hair and runs her fingers through it while flashing a cheeky smile.
It’s clear that the model can turn anything into a catwalk—and knows how to work the camera—but her caption on the post was a little more grounded and comical, proving that she never takes herself too seriously: “I was trying to walk out of the water all swinging hips and sexy, but was undercut by the currents, waves and dips in the sand. Oh, and my hip arthritis. 😂”
The body-positive star then reflected on her age, her health, and how she maintains her toned figure.
“I will be turning 58 soon, and couldn’t appreciate my body more. It takes a lot of work, especially with the janky hips. I lift weights now, inspired by @dolphinine and @trainwithjoan and have to do PT, and have been on the 16/8 fast for a few years,” she said, explaining that “staying in shape takes much more time and effort” nowadays while acknowledging that it allows her to “fully inhabit this shell I was given at birth, something I took for granted most of my life.”
She continued: “But not anymore. Now it’s a deliberate decision to allow it to work as best as it can, being grateful for its ability to move me through the world to keep harvesting the beauty of it all. Pain included. ❤️ Thank you @martiinaforman for being my friend, and at the moment, my photographer as well.”
Fans clearly connected with the video—and the candid messaging behind it—with one fan writing, “You’re so lovable with your vulnerability. ❤️”
Another weighed in, stating, “You look incredible and good for you. You need to celebrate your body because you’re gorgeous. And it definitely takes so much more work as we get older.”
“Whatever it is you are doing, it seems to be working 🙃😉,” a third added, as another joked, “arthritis is sexy.”
