Paulina Porizkova shared a hilarious new photo showing off her very relatable beauty routine ahead of a ‘date night.’

Paulina Porizkova, 55, is looking for love — and she’s not afraid to have a little laugh at herself along the way. The legendary model, who’s husband of 30 years, Ric Ocasek, died in 2019, is back on the singles scene. And, on April 21 she shared a hilarious glimpse into her pre-date ritual.

In the silly selfie, the model is rocking a blue hydrating sheet mask by Korean beauty brand Dr. Jart. Adding to her look are a pair of oversize reading glasses and a blue and white polka dot shower cap.

Her face is so covered up that she’s nearly unrecognizable but her signature humor is on full display in her caption. “Date night! Lucky the man that gets this full glory,” she quipped.

All jokes aside, whoever does get a date night with Paulina is truly one very lucky man. Not only is the OG supermodel still as stunning as ever, she’s also incredibly down to earth.

Paulina’s late husband was the frontman of 80’s rock band The Cars but don’t expect her to fall for another rockstar. In fact, during a recent appearance on the HollywoodLife podcast she revealed that she’s sworn off musicians completely. “No more of those, I know what I’m not looking for.”

“I definitely have a list of things, like need not apply if you have emotional unavailability, if you don’t love your mother,” she shared. “But, as for what I’m looking for, I’m pretty open and we’ll see. Like, woo me.”
Paulina also revealed during the interview that she’s meeting her potential suitors on-line. “I’ve gone out with some some pretty normal people that are invariably really sweet and charming and… will spend most of the time talking about themselves,” she dished. “It’s online dating baby!”

Paulina’s online dating profile includes pictures of the “real” her,” she explained. “Look, I’m 56, this is what I look like, I don’t post pictures of myself where I look better than the real me. So it’s like, no, you’re gonna get what you think you’re gonna get,” she said.

She added that she’s a “hopeless romantic” and admitted that once her “heart is healed” she would considered getting married again.

Paulina Porizkova Admits It Was Hard To Cope With ‘Rage & Grief’ After Being Cut From Ric Ocasek’s Will

Paulina Porizkova opened up about her roller coaster of emotions following the death of her husband Ric Ocasek & being cut from his will.

Paulina Porizkova[1], 55, was separated but living with her husband[2] of 30 years, Ric Ocasek[3], when she found him dead in their living room in September 2019. In the years that followed, Paulina learned that she had been shockingly cut out from The Cars frontman’s will, leaving her ‘without money for groceries’ and heartbroken. “I felt so betrayed. I felt like he lied. His last public words to me were a lie, and I felt that was really, really unfair,” the model explained[4] on the HollywoodLife Podcast[5]. “I was in this happy LaLa Land of thinking, ‘Oh, just because we’re no longer going to be married doesn’t mean that we’re not family forever… that we’re not going to be best friends.’ This man knows me better than any other human being in the world. Obviously, he didn’t feel the same way, and that was a blow.”

Paulina explained that Ric’s “last public words” was the publicizing of his will that seemingly “disinherited” her. “It was really kind of hard while I was also really missing him. Rage and sadness are not super compatible,” she admitted. “I was sort of waffling between this tenderness and sadness for having lost him. And then this rage of what he thought was a good idea.” Paulina made clear that she and Ric were heading for a divorce and she “never would have expected to just take over everything,” but “only thought that I should be allowed to get what one would get in a divorce — half of everything that we had made together.”

A year and a half after Ric’s passing, Paulina is “in a better place”[6] and living in an apartment that is right next to her first NYC place when she came to the city as a young model from Czechoslovakia. She revealed that turning to Instagram to write about her grief helped her heal and find forgiveness. “I felt like doing it publicly was a way of healing for me, because I got slapped with this, and also felt like I had to defend myself a little,” she said. “As I started sharing my feelings with others, I read all the replies and found that there’s a lot of women struggling with feeling invisible, a lot of women struggling with loss and grief, and all the same feelings.”

Paulina added, “It felt so good to not feel alone. They would tell me that they felt good to not feel alone. It became a community, like a healing space, with a couple of trolls[7] poking up once in a while to provide a little spice.”

Paulina Porizkova Laughs At Trolls & Dismisses Them As ‘Nasty’ Bullies For Dissing Her Looks

Paulina Porizkova believes online bullies should be held ‘responsible for what they say.’ So, the 55-year-old supermodel put their cruel comments on blast!

Paulina Porizkova[1] is turning the tables on her online bullies. Instead of letting them get the last laugh by dissing her appearance, the 55-year-old supermodel encouraged fans to “LAUGH at them.” So, she posted seven cruel comments from her haters to hold them “responsible,” which were all a mix of misogyny, sexism, ageism and body-shaming.

“You have the voice and skin of a smoker. A shame,” read a comment from one bully[2], while another person wrote, “You need a good amount of botox lmao,now you look like 75 years old grandma.” Another troll with too much time on their hands wrote, “I think ur just easy & wouldn’t blame anyone for not wanting something used up. I’m assuming u have no husband but do have cats?”

Those were just some of the cyberbullying messages[3]; you can read them all above, if your eyes can bare to. Paulina won’t let petty words hurt her, though. “Aaand – to start my week- some thoughtful readers’ comments,” she wrote under her screenshotted compilation of these messages. Paulina continued, “I know many of you believe that trolls and nasty people should just be deleted- but I beg to disagree. I believe in holding them responsible for what they say. Plus, I find them sort of hilarious. You know how you disarm the bullies in the schoolyard, right? You LAUGH at them.”

Paulina offered this tip on how to deal with Internet trolls after sharing a sultry photo of herself looking powerful in a black lace lingerie set[4]. The Czechoslovakia-native model — who was raised in Sweden — was presenting a debate for her over 331,000 Instagram followers: is “sex a social construct,” or “a biological inevitability” when it comes to men and women?

Paulina has been dealing with bullies long before social media. On March 18, the 1984 and 1985 cover star of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue[5] shared a selfie of herself after receiving a plasma pen treatment and opened up about her childhood tormentors.

“When I was 14, and terribly bullied in school, I thought it was because I was so ugly. That is what I was told. I was told I looked like a moose, a plucked chicken, a drunken giraffe, and a dirty communist (What does that even look like?),” Paulina wrote underneath the selfie[6], continuing, “All comments were made by girls. Had I had the access to plastic surgery, I would have gotten my lips plumped, my teeth capped, shave down my square jawbone, breast implants and liposuction on my thighs, and I would have given my soul to be a cute 5’5 or so.”
Paulina then revealed why it was important that she did not cave in to her bullies criticisms: “A year later, at fifteen, I became a model in Paris, a model of what other women were supposed to aspire to look like. I wanted desperately to fit it. But soon I was rewarded for exactly the parts of me I thought I hated. And that taught me an invaluable lesson. I hadn’t changed. People’s opinions had.” So, don’t mind the opinions that your bullies have of you today. It’s advice that Paulina still heeds to this day, as you can see in her powerful message above!
