1965: Model and actress Paulina Porizkova is born in Prost?jov, Czechoslovakia. In 1984, she became the first woman from Central Europe to be on the cover of the Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue. The following year she became the second woman, after Christie Brinkley, to be featured on the swimsuit issue's cover consecutive times. In 1988, Porizkova won what was then the highest-paying modeling contract, a $6 million contract with Estée Lauder cosmetics, staying the face of the company until 1995.
