Christie Brinkley was born on February 2, 1954. During the 1970s, she was discovered by American photographer Errol Sawyer, leading to her modeling career. She ultimately graced the cover of Glamour and from there a successful career took off. She then signed a 25-year contract with CoverGirl. Brinkley became further known after appearing on the cover of Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue covers consecutively from 1979 to 1981. Since then, she’s made covers on such prominent magazines like Vogue, Newsweek, Rolling Stone, Esquire, Harper’s Bazaar, Cosmopolitan, and Glamour, to name a few.
Additionally, the model landed ad campaigns for popular brands, including Chanel, Coca Cola, Healthy Choice, Max Factor, Nissan, and Revlon. Throughout her modeling career, she’s been photographed in over 30 countries. Apart from her modeling career, she also pursued acting. She debuted in the 1983 film National Lampoon’s Vacation. She reprised her role in the sequel Vegas Vacation released in 1997. During this period, she also made a notable appearance in the NBC sitcom Mad About You. Later, she hosted the TV program Celebrity Weddings InStyle. In the 2000s, she played recurring role Gayle Gergich in NBC’s Parks and Recreation. She continued pursuing acting in the 2010s, this time on stage. She played Roxie Hart in the long-running musical Chicago.
Has Christie Brinkley had Plastic Surgery?
The model/actress admitted to having tried Botox, though she also said you don’t get to have the best results all the time. That’s why when choosing between Botox and fillers, Brinkley is more inclined to have the latter. According to the model, wanting to look vibrant can be achieved by Botox as long as it’s “[administered] with a light hand.” On the other hand, undergoing invasive procedures seems to be extreme for her since it’ll radically change one’s appearance. “Don’t change your face; maybe just change a wrinkle or two that’s bothering you,” said Brinkley.
