Model Paulina Porizkova blames Photoshop for image issues: "My grandmother could be a supermodel now even though she's dead!"

In honor of the release of the 50th edition of Sports Illustrated's iconic swimsuit issue, on Tuesday evening "Piers Morgan Live" welcomed Paulina Porizkova, who, in 1984 and 1985, became just the second model to grace the magazine's cover in back to back years.

But more than a quarter century since a fresh-faced, 18-year-old Porizkova garnered international fame, ideas about beauty, body image and the female ideal have drastically changed.

"We're starting to celebrate such a small amount of beauty. It's like the fabulous big noses of the past. Like if you think of [the Portrait of] Madame X, the painting with this gorgeous profile. Like that wouldn't be gorgeous anymore. Like our sense of what's beautiful has narrowed so much," lamented the 48-year-old Czech-born model. "And I guess I'm partly responsible since 20 years ago you were supposed to look like this."

But who's to blame? Morgan wondered if it is in fact Porizkova, and her curvaceous colleagues, who have driven the industry in an unreal direction.

To the contrary, the model points her finger not at the models, but rather, at the computers, or more specifically, the editors who use them:

"I don't think it's so much supermodel-driven, because there's not even really supermodels around anymore. Everything is taken over by actresses," she explained. "What has been taken over is Photoshop. Everybody can look good. My grandmother could be a supermodel now even though she's dead."

Watch the clip for more of Morgan's interview with Paulina Porizkova, and for the next edition of "Piers Morgan Live," watch CNN at 9p.

    supermodels of the 80s played a small role in it, but it started way before that. women and teens were wearing corsets for smaller waist lines long before models and even barbies! corsets, along with the glamorization of beauty in old newspaper ads helped shape how we view beauty today... technology and the media have only helped keep that alive. we keep it going ourselves with buying the products that claim to help us get the looks (diet pills, fake boobs, fake everything). role models (i use that term loosely) such as celebrities, actors, actresses, singers, etc, allow photoshop to be used for touch-ups which gives a false sense of perfection to society. people will never, ever be what we see in magazines and on tv, it isn't possible. people need to take a stand against it, starting with the celebrities. beauty is in everyone. just because you may not appreciate someone's body type or size, doesn't mean someone else doesn't. being different it what makes us unique and human. if we all looked perfect and the same, it would be boring.
