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."
