The iconic Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue turns 50 this year and to mark the occasion, SI is rumored to have done photo shoots with a few of its most popular past cover starlets, including Bridgehampton’s Christie Brinkley.
Brinkley famously appeared on three consecutive covers, from 1979 to 1981. At 59 years old, she continues to model today and her 15-year-old daughter, Sailor Brinkley Cook, recently signed a modeling contract of her own.
Brinkley, a frequent user of the photo sharing mobile app Instagram, recently caught some attention with pictures she shared of her family vacation in Turks and Caicos. The bikini-clad supermodel looked a woman half her age.
