Paulina Porizkova showed her figure in a 12-year-old string bikini cleaning up her pool, which happens to be filled with green water.
For her latest # wedwearwearables photo, the 55-year-old model took it up Instagram to share a snapshot of herself with a small animal print bikini top, a towel around her waist and rubber gloves.
“Back to how I REALLY look, guys. My bikini is about twelve years old – it should be a translucent color, but so far it still gives me brown lines, ”she captioned the image. “The towel comes out of the A @ P supermarket about eight years ago.”
Just a normal day! Paulina Porizkova, 55, shared a photo of herself in a 12-year-old string bikini to clean her green pool on Wednesday with a slotted spoon
Same Look: A little over a week ago, she shared a snapshot of herself sunbathing topless wearing the matching animal print bottoms
Paulina’s hair is pulled up in a messy bun and she’s holding up a slotted spoon that she used as an improvised pool skimmer.
“I’m holding a skimmer to clean the skimmers in the pool, which have been given a nice green tint because the filter isn’t working and I can’t have it replaced this year,” she explained.
“But I have a swimming pool. A beautiful, great pool that has enjoyed so much joy in recent years – all the children in our family who have lived in it practically all summer, ”she added. ‘This summer is lonely, so what if the pool is more like a pond. (And yes, we tried to fix the Aquabot, but gave up and it has been there for two weeks now.)
“I swim in it, even though it’s green. Hopefully build up immunity. ‘
Just over a week ago, she shared a snapshot of herself sunbathing topless wearing the matching animal print bottoms.
She used her iPad – which had the cover of the book she was reading – to hide her chest.
Excited: On Tuesday, Paulina celebrates the divide by bringing back her favorite pink dress, which she’s been wearing for 20 years
Pandemi Hair: Earlier this week, she shared a close-up view of her hair, which is now a mix of blond, brown and gray after going months without dyeing
While the image was certainly light-hearted and fun, Paulina delved into more serious topics in the caption and opened up on aspects of Jennifer Pastiloff’s book On Being Human, which she most identified with.
“This book just hit the bookshelves like 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 that she can’t find it. (Sounds familiar). And how this girl can go further – by forgiving herself first. (I’m still working on that). ‘
The day before posting her latest bikini photo, she shared a photo of herself modeling a bright pink summer dress, revealing that the chasm had brought back her go-to dress, which she’s been wearing for the past two decades.
“I’ve been wanting to share this with you for months!” she wrote. “But the world suddenly became a different place; much was learned and many suffered. Hardly reason for a party. But I must admit that this gave me a wonderful moment of joy. Often, amid world-shattering events, we take our little happiness with us wherever we can.
“Now that I have admitted it, may I PLEASE enjoy this moment with you? My GAP dress! They went back to the archives and brought it back to life! If you’re one of my Insta friends, you know exactly what I’m talking about.
“My dress. The dress that has been my regular friend for twenty years. It has been on vacation with me, it has witnessed all my joy and sorrow. And it still held up – more or less. There are endless posts of mine in my dress, in fact most of my friends started referring to it as the ‘Paulina’. ‘

Stunning: Paulina has also shared some throwback photos from her pre-pandemic vacation in Costa Rica and Nicaragua
The Sports Illustrated Swimsuit star has shared countless posts about her beloved dress over the years. A Czech journalist even wrote a blog post about all the times she had worn the dress, and when she feared it might fall apart, a friend on Instagram found him on eBay and bought it for her.
“And now, holy cow of all cows, everyone including me can buy one! Needless to say, @gap, I think, gave me a lifetime supply, ”she said excitedly.
“Thanks to them, you will see me in the same damn dress as long as you choose to visit my Insta house. And most importantly, THANK YOU, my INSTAFRIENDS, who made this possible !!!!! YOU ARE POWERFUL AND AMAZING. I am so very grateful to you. ‘
In recent months, Paulina posted a mix of sultry bikini photos, throwback photos, and snapshots of herself with messy hair and comfy clothes while she was quarantined at her New York state home.
Earlier this week, she shared a close-up view of her hair, which is now a mix of blond, brown and gray – to her surprise.
“Here’s my tricolor hair in its full glory,” she wrote, explaining how many of her fans said she should “go gray.”
Reminder: Paulina was the morning of the death of her estranged husband Ric Ocasek, who died on September 15 at the age of 75
Memories: Paulina met the frontman of The Cars while the band filmed a music video in 1984 and became his third wife in 1989. They had two sons together, Jonathan, 26, and Oliver, 22.
“The point is, that’s why I turned blonde! So that I could switch! she noted. “Just to find out that all my hair is brown except for a strip on the front. So what now?
“I should also mention that tanning all over is probably my least favorite option because it looks like a helmet AND it’s a little too dark for the rest of my face now.”
These have been difficult years for Paulina, who had to mourn the end of her marriage as well as the death of her estranged husband Ric Ocasek.
She announced in May 2018 that they had quietly split up the previous year after 28 years of marriage. Although they got divorced, they continued to share a New York mansion, where Paulina found the famous rock star dead.
A medical researcher found that the musician died on September 15 at the age of 75 from hypertensive and atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease, in which pulmonary emphysema was a contributing factor.
Since his death, Paulina has been incredibly open about her struggles to process her emotions about his death.
Paulina met The Cars frontman while the band filmed the music video for Drive in 1984 and became his third wife five years later. They had two sons together, Jonathan, 26, and Oliver, 22.
