Christie Brinkley Breaking Stereotypes at Age 63

This year, Christie Brinkley became the oldest swimsuit model to be featured in Sports Illustrated's swimsuit edition. At the age of 63, she is breaking the model stereotype, that with age they become less desirable and increasingly irrelevant.

Christie, appeared in the magazine 8 times between 1975-2004, with 3 consecutive covers in 1979, 1980, and 1981. This is her first appearance in over a decade, and an especially memorable photo shoot with her daughters Sailor Brinkley Cook (age 18) and Alexa Ray Joel (31) along for the ride.

"I couldn't even believe my ears when I got the call that MJ wanted to shoot my daughters and me. I was thrilled."
Sports Illustrated is making a big statement with the diversity of it's models, by featuring Ashley Graham in 2016 on the cover, followed by the elder stateswomen Christie Brinkley in 2017.

We are interested to see where Sports Illustrated will go next.
