How old do you think this model is? 25, 30, maybe 40? This is Christie Brinkley, she's 64. And while her peers are making out a pension certificate, she poses in a swimsuit for the covers of popular publications. The word "old age" for Brinkley is an empty sound.

Three years ago, on the eve of her 60th birthday, in an interview with People magazine, Christie said: "I'm thrilled that I'm about to turn 60, it's like I'm at the peak of my life." Everyone at her age would have so much energy and self-confidence.

1. In 1973, American photographer Errol Sawyer saw a beautiful girl in one of the post offices of Paris. It was Christie, who grew up in Errol's homeland in the USA, and came to France to finish her education. Sawyer made several staged shots, which interested the owner of the Elite modeling agency John Casablancas. Thus began Christie's dizzying career.

2. Over the years, Brinkley has appeared on the covers of more than 500 magazines, including such famous ones as Vogue, Glamour, Rolling Stones, Esquire. In the mid-1980s, Christie signed the longest contract in the history of fashion for a period of 20 years with the cosmetics company CoverGirl. In 2005, by the way, it was extended — so Brinkley fused with the brand.

3. Now Christie is not only a model, but also a writer, illustrator, photographer, fashion designer and singer. And also — a mother of three children, who, despite pregnancy and childbirth, always continued to keep herself in shape. Let's not dissemble: Brinkley is a frequent guest of cosmetologists, and she also carefully does makeup and uses false hair for her gorgeous hairstyles. But what's wrong with that if, despite all the procedures, you look natural?

Don't think about age

4. "Biological age has nothing to do with my inner sense of self,— Brinkley constantly repeats to reporters. — These are absolutely meaningless figures for me now. I feel that time cannot become a limitation of my spirit, my energy and me in general!"

If you really want to, then you can

Christie is a committed vegetarian. She has been eating only fruits, vegetables and dairy products since she was 13. This, according to fans, is the secret of her success. But this does not mean that Brinkley is denying himself goodies. She has repeatedly admitted that she is a big fan of Italian pasta and eats pasta even for dinner. And the model has nothing against seafood: "Life is too short not to afford oysters and champagne sometimes."

5. Christie once told in another interview that her weight fluctuates from time to time. No wonder, with such an exorbitant love for pasta and other goodies. In her wardrobe there are jeans from 40 to 44 sizes, but the star does not bother at all. There are no women without flaws. The main thing is to choose the right outfit that will hide them.

Sport is youth

6. But what Brinkley is fixated on is sports and physical activity. Classes help her feel young: "As soon as I make my joints work, I understand, I'm ready to do anything," the model once said. At one time, she was the face of the TotalGym simulator and still says in all interviews that she shakes her abs, legs and arms with it. In addition, Christie tries to do up to 100 push-ups every day, does yoga for at least half an hour and often goes for a morning jog.

Brinkley also loves extreme sports, which has repeatedly stood in her way: "During my life, I received many injuries from things that were beyond my control: runaway horses, falling helicopters, overturning boats," she once told reporters.

Dress according to status

Despite her beautiful figure, the beautiful Christie never allows herself anything too open and vulgar. And it's not at all that the model is dissatisfied with her body — it's just that the bikini is somehow out of status for her, after all, the mother of three adult children. "When we rest alone, I can wear a bikini, but on a public beach with children, I wear closed bathing suits, because they don't want to go with an old woman in a bikini," Christie says ironically.

Love your children

7. Despite a breakneck career and human rights work, Brinkley puts family first. "I am an adult mom, I am responsible to my children and to myself. I want to be always with them and do everything possible for this," she says.
