Christie Brinkley has put all our summer bods to shame!
The Sports Illustrated Swimsuit stunner took to Instagram on Monday to share several photos of herself enjoying a tropical vacation on the island of Parrot Cay, which is part of the Turks and Caicos Islands. In the series of snaps, a smiling Brinkley is seen rocking a black string bikini — which shows off her incredible beach bod — while she lies in the sand and soaks up the sun. "Early Morning Swim ..Fish we’re jumping Pelicans swooping by and warm Rays of Sunshine ...just soaking it all in ! #luckyhousepc," the 65-year-old captioned the set of photos. Also joining in on the fun in the sun were her daughters Alexa Ray Joel and Sailor Brinkley-Cook.
Last month, the supermodel revealed her personal secrets for ageing gracefully. “I hear actresses constantly talking about how you hit a certain age and offers don’t come in anymore,” explained Brinkley. “We’re changing that a lot, and that is because, frankly, we’re healthier today. We’re a generation that has been exercising, has been eating right, and so we feel good. But so many women despite that still get influenced. There are so many things that influence us to feel we should be thinking about slipping away and winding things down."
Earlier in the year, she appeared in the 'Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue' alongside her two daughters. It marked the ninth time she'd been featured in the magazine. In her book 'Timeless Beauty', Brinkley credited a number of factors for her ageless appearance, including eating a "rainbow diet" of fruits and vegetables high in antioxidants, drinking lots of water, keeping active and staying optimistic.
The 65-year-old who rose to fame in the ‘70s as a Sports Illustrated Swimsuit pinup and has gone on to grace more than 500 magazine covers speaks about staying young, “[Keeping young] is to be able to be out there active, doing things, learning new things,” continued Brinkley. “Being curious about the world, taking on challenges, and constantly growing and learning, that’s the fountain of youth… Those things are the things that keep invigorated.”
In 2018, she discussed with TODAY Style how women in her age group deserve to be represented in the media. "I have to constantly be reminding people that my age group matters, that we are relevant, that we want to be represented. I hear women say to me all the time, I don’t know what I’m supposed to be wearing at my age because I don’t see anybody my age in a magazine. And I always say you should wear whatever you want," she shared.
In April of this year, Playbill revealed Brinkley was returning to the Tony-winning revival of Broadway’s ‘Chicago’. The star, who made her Broadway debut in the musical in 2010 and played a return engagement in 2012, once again stepped into the role of Roxie Hart on May 12 at New York City’s Ambassador Theatre.
