Happy 25th birthday to one of the best people I have the privilege to know, my son Jonathan. He makes me feel like a good mom, and I can’t think of anything more flattering. Here with his wonderful girlfriend, Erin, who took him out in the town to celebrate.🥂 . #25thbirthday #milestones #jonathanravenotcasek

“These pictures are beautiful! It’s funny, on one hand I look so much older than I imagine I am - but simultaneously, I think you made me look like who I am and it’s beautiful. So, there is some weird acceptance in this - the real me looks my age - but it’s not a bad thing!” —- Paulina to photographer Fabrizio Ferri. .

I have, in my younger years, said plenty of mean, bitchy comments about the way someone else looked. . Now that I’m older, I’m aware that the younger me was deeply insecure: my jealousy, my desire to prop myself up, even if it was on the broken parts of someone I had just torn apart, was not an opinion but a weakness. . In the cases of young girls fighting an inner dialogue with how pretty they are and how much prettier they need to be or want to be to have the life they hope for, my past behavior may be hardly acceptable but it’s certainly understandable. . Isn’t one of the major benefits of aging that we ought to know better? As women, not girls, haven’t we yet found out that we are stronger together? That the world is hard enough? That pushing others off a cliff makes *us* the villain? . When we see a woman with a happy smile why do we want to tell her she is too thin or fat or has hair that’s the wrong color? Why do we feel the necessity to criticize they way other women look? Does it make us feel prettier? Does it make us feel better? Or just superior? . I know how I felt when I was a mean girl. I didn’t believe I was any good, and if people called me pretty, they were just momentarily deceived. I knew the ‘real me’ wasn’t all that great. . To all of you who have to criticize the way another woman looks, I’m so sorry. Try, just TRY, a little generosity in your opinions of others. It’s amazing how much prettier the whole world becomes. . #BeautyIs #Wisdom #ThisIs50

I'm perfectly aware I’m lucky to be aging. It’s obvious what the alternative is. . Growing older means accumulating experiences and wisdom and having as much time as possible with those whom we love. This is unquestionably a privilege. . What I'm trying to express in this @newbeauty cover article is what it feels like (for me personally) to become invisible due to aging when my whole life I’ve been told that how I look is the most important thing about me. . Sure, more so because I was a model, but I believe every girl is told what her value is based on how pretty she is.  Maybe this is not told to her by her parents or family — her peers and society in general certainly tell her this. . A woman’s prettiness as her primary value in society is not a new construct; it goes back to the start of recorded history. . At my age now, I'm trying to balance the wonder of aging with the unfairness of being a woman in her prime who’s being dismissed as a has-been on the basis of her looks. No wonder we all rush to do something “little’ or “big” to stay looking younger. It’s not about death for us women, it’s about relevance, about being heard, about having a presence at the table of life without having to sit in a corner eating leftovers. . @newbeauty magazine on stands Tuesday.

Worth fighting for...👊 And those not pictured here: Olivia, Nicolaia, Liv and Erin. . I have two sons, no daughters. But I’m surrounded by step-granddaughters, nieces and goddaughters (real and honorary). There is little that compares to the privilege of being a part of the lives of so many beautiful girls and young women. And by beautiful, I mean complex and demanding and intricate and deep; and yet capable of the greatest vulnerability and gentleness. That’s womankind for you. All of us. We are all capable of owning the world. But not when we don’t get to make our own choices, not when we don’t get to participate in our own lives, not when we’re forcibly shoved back by men who behave like entitled frat boys. . This is NOT the world I ever envisioned creating for my kids and my family. Today, I’m devastated and ashamed of the mess these young women and girls will have to clean. Yes, they’ll fight their own battles.  And they are well-prepared, armed with kindness and understanding but also strength and conviction — not guns and hatred and ignorance. . But I - WE - are responsible and there is no time to rest. Today, I’ll mourn. Tomorrow, I’ll fight. . cc: @sporizkova @rubyrex @josieerussell @aaobkn @pineappleotc @oliviaotcasek @nrips @livsolomon @erinstagram . #stopkavanaugh #believesurvivors
