Paulina Porizkova celebrates turning 55 in quarantine with throwback bikini pic: 'I will feel pretty today'
on Thursday to commemorate her first birthday since the death of her estranged husband Ric Ocasek in September 2019 and shared a stunning throwback picture of herself in a bikini from a recent trip to South America.
“Less than two months ago, the world was still a familiar place. And I was basking in its best incarnation, here in Costa Rica,” she began in the caption of the golden hour photo of herself among nature donning a flashy gold bikini.
“💕 Humor me, if you will, today,” she requested of her followers. “I’m now 55, and I have gone through half a lifetime only liking the way I look in retrospect. I look at old photos and realize how good I had it. So today, I am looking at myself, (in an admittedly flattering photo) and think, ‘hey, I m a good 55 year old!’”
Porizkova said she is “endlessly grateful” for the outpouring of “gifts life has bestowed on me thus far” and while there have “been many,” she said she’s looking forward to sifting “through them all” while under coronavirus quarantine.
