Brinkley: Women 'don't come with expiration date'
Christie Brinkley has returned to the pages of the Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue at age 63 – and this time she’s appearing with her two daughters.
Brinkley first appeared on the cover of the swimsuit issue in 1979.
In an Instagram post, she thanked 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.”
On the issue coming out this month, the former model, in a black bathing suit, is appearing with 31-year-old Alexa Ray Joel, her daughter with singer Billy Joel, and 18-year-old Sailor Brinkley Cook.
Brinkley, who appears to walk on water in the shoot, joked in her Instagram post: “Oh and My kids think I walk on water, so let’s not mention the apple box concealed just under the surface.”
She told People magazine she had thought her days of posing in a bathing suit were over when she turned 30, but getting to pose with her daughters convinced her to do it again.
Sports Illustrated said Brinkley is “out to prove that age is nothing more than a number”.
