Paulina Porizkova didn’t need photoshop to land on the cover of Vogue Czechoslovakia
She likewise thanked the “brave folks at Vogue CZ for daring to do” the cover.
The image ran with no filters or image modifying.
“As soon as it came out, Twitter was like, ‘Well, fine, retouch [the photos] and then sure, they’ll look fine,'” she stated, including, “It’s like, no, no, no … it was Marie [Tomonova’s] photography! Obviously, you know, you could take a much worse picture than that of me, but you wouldn’t want to see that on the cover, right?”
She likewise states she didn’t understand the image was going to arrive on the cover.
“I just thought we were screwing around, quite frankly,” she stated. “You know, we were all just hanging out, speaking Czech, having a good time taking some pictures … I figured we’d have a page or two in the back of Vogue.”
The cover, she likes to stress, comes “exactly four decades” after her very first German Style cover.
“My very first Vogue cover was in May 1981, and it was an extreme close-up on my face,” she informed the publication.
