Even on the driest continent on earth, Australia, Paulina Porizkova is making us sweat. Surrounded by the West Australia Pinnacles, Porizkova, makes this majestic landscape even more intriguing in a blue lace Bikini. This iconic 1985 cover of Sports Illustrated, photographed by Brian Lanker, catapulted Porizkova’s career.
After appearing on the cover of Sports Illustrated the previous year, Paulina posed for a spread in Playboy. In the early 90’s she signed a multi-million dollar contract with Estee Lauder. In the campaign’s iconic black and white television and print ad, Porizkova went from being a well-known swimsuit model, to European sophistication. Recently, Paulina has appeared on Cycle 10 of America’s Next Top Model as one of the judges with supermodel Tyra Banks.
