Paulina Porizkova is opening up about her career as a model.

On Wednesday, the 57-year-old supermodel took to Instagram to share a selfie paired with a message for her fans, explaining that her recent modelling work is hardly a full "comeback."

In the photo, Porizkova posed in front of a dressing room mirror with her hair pulled back, rocking a "'no-makeup' makeup" look and wearing a hot pink knit sweater. In the caption, she revealed she was about to wrap up her final photoshoot of the year.

"People often congratulate me on my 'comeback' to the world of modelling, and it makes me smile," she penned for her more than 949,000 followers. "When I was a model, I'd mostly work every day. So, at least a couple of hundred different jobs, anything from catalogs to fashion spreads and campaigns and stuff in between."

She explained that in 2022, there were "companies who have used me in their campaigns as a model, supporting the 'older' woman, and I'm super grateful to them!"

While Porizkova had seven modelling jobs this year, she called it "a far cry from a comeback."

"This is not to sound ungrateful! I've had an amazing year filled with career highlights. It's merely a statement of fact," she shared. "I'm hardly making a 'comeback as a model.' But I'm thrilled and grateful to all the people who have chosen to work with me this year."

In the comments, fans called Porizkova a "timeless" beauty and praised her for embracing a new chapter of her career.

"You look as beautiful as ever, so happy to see these companies are embracing aging," one Instagram user commented. "You are such an inspiration for so many of us. Thank you for being so real and honest about things."

"It's still a comeback and what you have done is very important," someone else weighed in.

One person shared: "You're timeless," alongside a heart emoji.

"It's your quality comeback!" another fan penned. "You are doing so many amazing things for women across this world."

"You have never been out of style," wrote another. "You have always been an inspiration to many."

In September, the anti-ageism advocate shared a note with her Instagram followers, admitting that, at times, she misses the attention she received for her beauty when she was a younger model. She added that no longer meeting societal beauty standards due to aging "is not easy to accept."

"I do miss the attention," Porizkova wrote before pointing out, however, that it was impossible to "measure up."

"It was probably when I felt the worst about myself," she added. "And now, when I finally appreciate what I had been given, it's in society's opinion I'm losing my beauty. God d—, I feel in my prime now!"
