Last month, the model took to Instagram to post a photo of herself on the cover of Vogue Czechoslovakia, writing: “Exactly 40 years after my very first (German) Vogue cover at the age of sixteen years, here is a new one. nude, 56, on Vogue CZ. ”
She also thanked the “good people of Vogue CZ for daring to do” the cover.
The image worked without any filters or photo editing.
Porizkova tells Page Six: “It has not been retouched,” referring to the photo.
She also says she didn’t know the image was going to land on the cover.
“I just thought we were screwing, quite frankly,” she said. “You know, we were all just hanging out, talking Czech, having a good time taking pictures… I thought we’d have a page or two on the back of Vogue. “
The cover, she likes to point out, comes “exactly four decades” after her first German cover of Vogue.
“My very first Vogue cover was in May 1981, and it was an extreme close-up of my face,” she told the publication.
