Trailblazer Award Presented to Paulina Porizkova

Inside The Brand

SRQ MEDIA will present the 2023 Trailblazer Award to Paulina Porizkova, model and author of  No Filter: The Good, the Bad, and the Beautiful, and an advocate for celebrating women of every age. Born in Cold War Czechoslovakia, Porizkova was the first central European woman to appear on the cover of the Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue in 1984.  In 1989, she became one of the highest-paid models in the world as the face of Estée Lauder, and when she was nineteen, she fell in love with The Cars frontman Ric Ocasek. The decades to come would bring marriage, motherhood, a budding writing career; and later sadness, loneliness, and eventually divorce. Following her ex-husband’s death—and the revelation of a deep betrayal—Paulina stunned fans with her fierce vulnerability and disarming honesty as she let the whole world share in her experience of being a woman who must start over. Now, she has discovered her voice – and it is astute, wise, and vulnerable.  After a lifetime of being looked at, Paulina is ready to be heard.
