Paulina Porizkova (born Pavlína Pořízková, Czech: [ˈpavliːna ˈpor̝iːskovaː]; 9 April 1965) is a model, actress and author. Born in Czechoslovakia, she now holds dual American and Swedish citizenship.

In 1984, at 18 years old, she became the first woman from Central Europe to be on the cover of the Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue.[3] In 1988, Porizkova earned what was then the highest-paying modeling contract ever: a $6,000,000 contract with Estée Lauder. She was part of the judging panel of America's Next Top Model in Cycles 10–12.
