Christie Brinkley…63 years old and gracing the cover of Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition- and with her daughters! For adorning the cover first in 1979, and for a few years in between, she didn’t think that she would still be qualified 38 years later.
She told PEOPLE,
“My first thought was, ‘At my age? No way! When I turned 30, I was like, ‘This is the last time I’m posing in a bathing suit!’ When this issue comes out, I’ll be 63. I thought, ‘Those days are over.’ But to get to do it with my girls, I thought, ‘One last go!’”
“In a country that’s very ageist, people love to put you in little boxes. Women feel very limited by their numbers. On a personal level, I thought, if I can pull this off, I think it will help redefine those numbers and remove some of the fear of aging.”
Also featured are her two daughters, Sailor and Alexa, pictured below.
