Uptown Girl: Christie Brinkley

She’s been in this modeling game for so long, that it feels appropriate to describe her as an enduring beauty. Aside from being a mom to three children and a model, she’s also an artist, actress, author, philanthropist, environmentalist and entrepreneur.

Modeling Career

Christie got noticed while working as an aspiring artist living in Paris.

She is only the model to have had the longest running cosmetics contract with any beauty company.

Her contract with CoverGirl lasted for 25 years.

She was signed again in 2005 by CoverGirl to appear in magazines and TV ads for mature skin products.

Christie appeared on the cover of Sports Illustrated Swimsuit edition for three consecutive years in 1979, 1980 and 1981.

To celebrate Sports Illustrated’s 40th anniversary, she was featured in the magazine as the most respected figure in the magazine’s history.

She also worked as an editorial model and appeared on over 500 magazine covers such as US, Vogue, Newsweek, Rolling Stones and much more.

Brinkley also had contracts with Chanel No. 19, Prell, MasterCard and Breck, just to name a few.
