Thousands of 20-year-old bikini models are looking into alternate career options this week after 63-year-old Christie Brinkley proved she still has the body to steal their jobs.
Christie announced on Instagram that she was asked to pose in the upcoming 2017 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue. Christie has appeared on the cover three times and posed inside countless times, but this time she’s being joined by her daughters, 31-year-old Alexa Ray Joel and 18-year-old Sailor Brinkley Cook. Sadly, it looks like neither Alexa or Sailor inherited their mom’s water-walking abilities!
Yes! I am excited to announce that I am back in @si_swimsuit ..I figured with my gorgeous daughters @alexarayjoel and @sailorbrinkleycook by my side whose going to be looking at me! Oh and My kids think I walk on water, so let's not mention the apple box concealed just under the surface. For a preview check out @people.com ..and thank you Sports Illustrated for sending the powerful message that good things come in packages of every size and we do not come with an expiration date! 🌸🌴psI can’t wait to see everyone at VIBES on Feb 17th and 18th in Houston! #proudmomhere!
Maybe she is holding back some loose neck skin with the hand that’s behind her back!
Seriously though, anybody able to look that smoking hot at 63 has got to be hiding some kind of water-walking magic secret. I know! I bet Christie Brinkley took THE POTION…
Christie tells People that when she turned 30, she figured she’d be hanging up her bikinis and retiring from swimsuit modelling. But, she decided to do it again for Sports Illustrated at 63 because her daughters wanted her to. She also says she decided to pose for the swimsuit issue to combat ageism.
We should all hope to look like a 63-year-old Christie Brinkley at any age!
