It was an interesting revelation about a profession that seems like it would be full of confident women. So Ali invited her friend Paulina Porizkova, who rose to fame as an international supermodel in the eighties, to give an insider’s perspective on the modeling industry today.
Paulina, who is just as gorgeous as ever, told Ali that the times she felt the ugliest was when she was modeling. “You don’t hear, oh you’re so beautiful, your hair is so splendid, your eyes are so pretty,” she says. “It’s ‘oh, well your nose is a millimeter too wide or too long or too short and your knees are a little flabby.”
That still happens now, she says, but one of the biggest changes is airbrushing. “Thanks to Adobe photoshop….my grandmother could model. Now, she could look 25. And I think models have sort of taken a backseat, too. They’re reverting back to being clothes hangers more than stars or personalities. “
