Setting the Bar: Christie Brinkley in Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue 2017!
Seriously, who knew 63 could look so hot?
Supermodel Christie Brinkley got her start way back in the 1970’s by landing the cover of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue three years in a row. Now, several decades later, she’s appearing again in the magazine that made her a household name!
This time, proud mom Christie is posing alongside her two daughters, Alexa Ray Joel, 31 and Sailor Brinkley Cook, 18. They pose together in stunning black bathing suits in the Turks and Caicos islands! But what might really amaze you is Christie is now 63 years old! If you think being in your 60’s means looking like a grandma, think again! Christie Brinkley is definitely setting the bar for women of a certain age. In fact, we dare say that she looks better than many women decades younger!
Perhaps Brinkley maintains her youthful appearance by maintaining a vegan diet. In a previous interview she said, “I made the decision (to go vegan) because I loved animals and didn’t want to be a part of the slaughter industry. And I’ve been reaping the benefits of that karma ever since.” Also, she believes in maintaining a positive outlook on life. She said, “I really believe that being flexible and grateful contributes a lot to your happiness, which contributes to your health, and contributes to your looks. When you feel good, you look good.” These are wise words well said as she still looks every bit the supermodel she was in her heyday.
Christie also thanked Sports Illustrated for “sending a powerful message that good things come in packages of every size and we do not come with an expiration date!” JSYK, we definitely don’t see an expiration date, Christie!
In addition, both daughters posed for solo photos with Alexa showing her beautiful curves and Sailor showing her lithe, athletic figure.
Christie shared the experience on Instagram saying, “I am excited to announce that I am back in @si_swimsuit…I figured with my gorgeous daughters @alexarayjoel and @sailorbrinkleycook by my side who’s going to be looking at me!”
FYI, we are all looking, Christie, and we are all inspired and motivated by you!
