One look at still-beautiful former supermodel Paulina Porizkova and it’s easy to make assumptions about plastic surgery. However, a recent rant on modelinia.com reveals her disapproving attitude towards cosmetic enhancement.
“Kate Hudson has gotten implants. Allegedly,” she writes, crestfallen over the new cleavage the once flat-chested star now seems to sport. “My issue here isn’t with Kate. If big boobs make her happier, then more power to her. The issue here, this fixing something perfect to something else perfect, is so much a sign of our times, and one that truly saddens me. The availability and ease of transforming our bodies is completely losing our identities and uniqueness. No one ages anymore, no one has imperfections of any kind anymore, all smiles are flawless and no one past 35 can express displeasure.”
Paulina then switches her focus to a recent NewBeauty cover girl: “Madonna no longer looks like Madonna: what started as a sexy, well shaped, and somewhat hairy Italian girl has ended as a cool Nordic blonde. It’s not that she doesn’t look great, she does. But she is starting to sort of melt away into the stew of the famous women over-fifty high-cheek-boned blondes who cannot frown.”
If it’s hard hear a supermodel tell you to leave your looks alone, she assures readers that she’s not as perfect as people may think.
“For your information, I have saddlebags and cellulite, and no matter how hard I work out, that is my body shape and I’m stuck with it… But, for the body type of a saddlebag/cellulite, I think I look really great,” she states confidently. “If I went and lipo-ed my thighs to the size of Gisele’s, I still wouldn’t look anything like her, and instead, I’d start looking like everyone else. I would be a poor example of a woman with skinny thighs.”
It’s not that she’s against self-improvement: “By all means, pluck your mono-brow, dye your mouse-brown hair and work out to firm your body,” she urges. It’s cosmetic-surgery-for-conformity that upsets her.
“Please, before permanently removing or adding a part to you to fit societal graphs of pulchritude, consider that that change will be permanent. If, a hundred years ago, you were unhappy with your nose-tough luck. You could hide your flaws, accentuate your strengths, and sometimes, more often than not, realize your flaws were your strengths and were precisely what made you unique and beautiful.”
