Paulina Porizkova struck pose wearing nothing but skimpy string bikini bottoms while enjoying a summer day outside at her home in upstate New York.
For her latest #wednesdaywearables picture, the 55-year-old model took to Instagram to share a topless photo of herself covering her bare breasts with her arm and pointing to a black smudge on her hip that came from her ’20-year-old bikini bottoms.’
‘It’s supposed to be tan-thru since I hate bikini lines, but it never worked all that well. I still liked it for the material dries super fast,’ she wrote of the swimsuit. ‘And I thought it was indestructible until this. Black marks that resemble tar started to appear on my hips and shoulders.’

Keeping it real: Earlier this month, she posted a makeup-free selfie as she admitted she is ‘super insecure’ about her appearance and ‘trying to come to terms’ with her aging
‘Couldn’t figure it out for a while — until today — eureka! It’s the black dye coming off. Time for one of us to retire!’ she joked.
Paulina ended the post by asking her 193,000 Instagram followers to ‘send out little prayers of light’ to her best friend Tracy Rapp, her goddaughter Sarah Rapp, and Mimi Rochelle.
Fans couldn’t help but take to the comments to gush about the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit star’s incredible figure.
‘How are you this perfect,’ wrote fellow SI Swimsuit model Haley Kalil
‘Literally, your body looks exactly like it did 30 years ago! Definitely time for the [bikini emoji] to retire-not you!!!’ cookbook author Amanda Haas added.

Emotional: Paulina shared a heart-wrenching video of herself singing the song ‘Smile’ while playing the ukulele on Tuesday
‘This is what 55 looks like — on a good day… Freshly rolled out of bed. Had a good nights sleep (for a change) after a lovely July 4th weekend,’ she wrote. ‘But also waking up to tragic and sad news of the pandemic — a reminder that that happiness is a butterfly, it’s only a perfect moment in time and like all else, it passes.
‘Disturbing and comforting all at once — nothing good lasts — but nor does anything bad…#fiftyfiveandcounting #betweenjloandbettywhite #nofilters #nofillers #nobotox YET!’ she continued.
‘( BTW, posting this photo because I’m super insecure about my appearance — not proud of it! I may have body dysmorphia in the opposite direction: believing I look much better than I actually do. I’m so used to looking one way in photos, that this older me that stares back shocks me. By posting myself unaltered, I’m really trying to come to terms with my aging. I figure if I put the real ME out there, I’ll get used to being older – eventually.) Also noteworthy — to fix impending jowls — smile.’
The day before Paulina posted her latest topless snap, she shared a heart-wrenching video of herself singing the song ‘Smile’ while playing the ukulele.
‘Smile though your heart is aching / Smile even though it’s breaking / When there are clouds in the sky you’ll get by / If you smile through your fear and sorrow,’ she croons, close to tears.

All smiles: The model has been showing off her gray hair while quarantined in her home in upstate New York
‘Sorry to impose my self-taught ( a year ago?) ukulele and voice on you guys, but I just learned this song, and this is exactly how I feel right now,’ she wrote in the caption.
‘(Did you know this song was written by Charlie Chaplin? Originally a movie score, words were added in the fifties). It’s for you @tracyrapp @sarah_rapp and also Teadora Roma.’

‘Oh, for F$&@‘s sake, what am I supposed to do with THIS?!’ she asked.
The model has been sharing a mix of sultry bikini pictures, throwback photos, and snapshots of herself sporting messy hair and comfy clothes while quarantined in her New York home over the past four months.

Just a normal day! Paulina recentl shared a photo of herself wearing a 12-year-old string bikini to clean out her green pool with a slotted spoon
Earlier this month, she showed off her figure in a 12-year-old string bikini while cleaning out her pool, which happened to be filled with green water.
In the snapshot that she shared, she is wearing a tiny animal-print bikini top, a towel around her waist, and rubber gloves.
‘Back to what I REALLY look like, guys. My bikini is about twelve years old — it’s supposed to be a tan-thru but so far it still gives me tan lines,’ she captioned the image. ‘The towel is from the A@P supermarket about eight years ago.’
Paulina’s hair is pulled up in a messy bun and she is holding up a slotted spoon that she was using as a makeshift pool skimmer.
‘I’m holding a slotted spoon to clean the skimmers in the pool, which has gone a lovely shade of green because the filter doesn’t work and I can’t get it replaced this year,’ she explained.

Stunning: Paulina has also been sharing a number of throwback photos from her pre-pandemic vacation in Costa Rica and Nicaragua
‘But I have a pool. A lovely, amazing pool which has seen so much joy in years past — all the kids in our family practically living in it all summer,’ she added. ‘This summer is a lonely one, so, so what if the pool is more of a pond. (And yes, we tried to fix the Aquabot, but gave up and it been sitting there for two weeks now.)
‘I swim in it even though it’s green. Hopefully building immunity.’
A little over a week before, she shared a snapshot of herself sunbathing topless while wearing the matching animal print bottoms.
She used her iPad — which showed the cover of the book she was reading — to conceal her chest.
While the image was certainly light-hearted and fun, Paulina delved into more serious topics in the caption, opening up about aspects of the book, On Being Human by Jennifer Pastiloff, that she identified with most.
‘This book has just hit the bookshelves as a paper back,’ she captioned the cheeky snapshot. ‘And let me tell you, Jen knows all about being human. About being a girl who needs love and is so full of self doubt and insecurities she can’t find it. (Sounds familiar). And how this girl can go on — by first forgiving herself. (Still working on that).’
Memory: The mother of two has been morning the death of her estranged husband Ric Ocasek, who passed away on September 15 at the age of 75
Memories: Paulina met The Cars frontman while the band was filming a music video in 1984 and became his third wife in 1989. They had two sons together, Jonathan, 26, and Oliver, 22
It’s been a difficult few years for Paulina, who has had to mourn both the end of her marriage and the death of her estranged husband Ric Ocasek.
She had announced in May 2018 that they had split quietly the previous year after 28 years of marriage. Though they were divorcing, they continued to share a New York townhouse and that is where Paulina found the famed rock star dead.
A medical examiner determined that the musician died on September 15 at the age of 75 from hypertensive and atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease with pulmonary emphysema being a contributing factor.
Since his passing, Paulina has been incredibly open about her struggle to process her emotions about his death.
Paulina met The Cars frontman while the band was filming the music video for Drive in 1984 and became his third wife in five years later. They had two sons together, Jonathan, 26, and Oliver, 22.
