READ: No Filter: The Good the Bad, and the BeautifuL
The 1980s, the decade known for neon, oversized blazers, and preppy ensembles were all highly coveted runway moments, worn by the emerging supermodels who paved the way. In addition to Brooke Shields and Cindy Crawford, Paulina Porizkova was one of the highest paid models of her time, gaining magazine covers, a space on the runway, and bookings with notable designers. Porizkova’s memoir, No Filter: The Good the Bad, and the Beautiful Porizkova is unveiling the the dark side of the fashion world and its effects on her personal life. A supermodel lifestyle full of glitz, glamor, and a full face of makeup was seemingly all that and more. In the present day, Porizkova’s presence remains contradictory: open, mature, unfiltered, and ready to show her authentic self to the public on inked pages.
