Christie Brinkley is 59 and FABULOUS.
The former model slipped into a bathing suit for the first time in 30 years for a spread in Social Life magazine and good lord, this woman looks as good as women half - or even a third - her age!
Christie posed in the black two-piece in the Hamptons and has a body that's just as lovely as when she posed for the cover of Sports Illustrated's 1979, 1980, and 1981 issues.
In the issue, she says:
"I find when I walk with a camera in my hand, I am extra alert and attuned to all the extraordinary beauty that abounds, from the smallest detail of a powdery pistil in a flower to the texture of the sky. Taking pictures intensifies my appreciation and awe."
Well, now she has even MORE reasons to Instagram! Hello bikini selfies!
Check out the rest of the spread as well as her old swimsuit covers (below)!
