“Porizkova is uniquely positioned to write about the beauty industry, the fetishization of youth, aging in the public eye, and yes, feminism. No Filter consists of a series of essays covering everything from an increasingly toxic marriage to honesty online.”

The discussion at these five events will have a focus on thriving at Midlife, the wisdom that comes with aging, and telling the truth about our mental health. Think about your questions for this important conversation we will have.



Born in Cold War Czechoslovakia, Paulina Porizkova rose to prominence as a model, appearing on her first Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue cover in 1984.  As the face of Estée Lauder in 1989, she was one of the highest-paid models in the world. When she was cast in the music video for the song “Drive” by The Cars, it was love at first sight for her and frontman Ric Ocasek. He was forty at the time, and Porizkova was nineteen. The decades to come would bring marriage, motherhood, a budding writing career; and later sadness, loneliness, isolation, and eventually divorce. Following her ex-husband’s death—and the revelation of a deep betrayal—Porizkova 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.
This is a wise and compelling exploration of heartbreak, grief, beauty, aging, relationships, re-invention and finding your purpose. In these essays, Porizkova bares her soul and shares the lessons she’s learned—often the hard way. After a lifetime of being looked at, she is ready to be heard.

Registration for all events is $150 per person and will be a Booksigning, Brunch or Dinner, and an interactive Q & A with Paulina. Each attendee will receive a copy of No Filter: The Good, The Bad, and The Beautiful and have it personally signed by Paulina, and be able to take a photo with her.


Select the date, time, and location you are interested in and email with that information in the subject line. You will be contacted on how to pay for your ticket.
