christie brinkley sailor cook model 15 skinny weight

Sailor Brinkley Cook, daughter of Christie Brinkley, might be the offspring of a supermodel, but she is NOT down with what a lot of supermodels are doing with their bodies! Learning from her own weight loss, she does NOT support the super skinny look!

At 15, Sailor has her mind right! In the August 2013 issue of Teen Vogue, she takes some shots at super skinny models as being “unwomanly." That's a little far, but we'd definitely say 'unheatlhy' wouldn't be far off base!!

Here's what she said, 99% of which is SPOT ON:

“It was only recently that I wanted to get into modeling. I said, ‘Mom, should I diet?’ and she was like, ‘No! You don’t need to be skinny, you just need to be happy with yourself and confident and fit.’ All of her photos really show that. She was like a goddess.

“I feel like models today have turned into sticks, and it’s so unwomanly, I am for models who are healthy and have a personality. You shouldn’t just be a piece of cardboard. When I started out, models were the proverbial clothes hangers. You were just to be quiet, put the clothes on and do as you were told.”

She's 15!! Such insight and wisdom for someone so young… and such a healthy outlook!

We'll always be proponents of people being healthy, and that includes having a healthy body image for themselves. Your own happiness is sooooo important!

Keep it up, kid!

    Those models are pressured to be as thin as possible because of the fashion industry that does not care about their health but only that they look a certain way on the runway and in ads. It's not the models' fault, and it's ignorant to blame it on the models, when the industry is doing everything in its power to make these girls feel like they will never be good enough.

    If she really wants to make a difference, she should try to change the way the industry works, especially since she has a powerful mother who can lend a lot of support to the cause through her connections. Models like Sara Ziff and Coco Rocha are already working to make that models in the industry aren't mistreated or forced to lose weight to fit those ridiculous sample sizes.

    And just because a model is either naturally thin or has felt immense pressure to become thin so she can get work, doesn't mean she's "unwomanly." Women come in all shapes and sizes.
