Paulina was born April 9, 1965, in Prostejov, Czechoslovakia. Paulina and her younger brother were left in the care of their grandmother, after their parents fled from their country. The Porizkova family was reunited after 7 years, albeit not for long, as Paulina's parents got divorced. Since Paulina's mother was busy supporting her children and funding her own medical school education, a 10-year-old Paulina was forced to tend to herself and her brother.

While living in Sweden, she was offered a modelling career - this was popular as she could then support herself.  Besides her 6-million/year contract for Estée Lauder (as Elizabeth Hurley's predecessor), Paulina has appeared in advertisements for Alma, Anne Klein Footwear, Capezio Bags, Episode, Escada, Giorgio Beverly Hills Red fragrance, Macy's, Maybelline, and Mikimoto.

In 1995 Paulina turned down the part of the Bond Girl in 'Golden Eye'.

Paulina has also written a children's book., and hopes to someday, write a book about her modelling career.
