Christie Brinkley has won the sea leg.
The veteran Sports Illustrated Swimsuit model took to Instagram on Wednesday and uploaded a photo of herself posing on a boat in the Turks and Caicos Islands. The star is seen beaming as it soaks up the sun while proudly displaying its long, lean stalks. The cover girl wore a bright pink swimsuit, a paisley-print cover-up and a colorful straw hat to shield her skin from the fierce rays of the sun.
“Happy New Year from Turks & Caicos!” the mother-of-three captioned the series of sizzling snaps. “May 2023 be full of happy days from sunrise to sunset!”
Brinkley also encouraged his 816K followers to tune in to QVC for his next appearance to plug in Bellissima, his brand of prosecco made with organic grapes.

The blonde bombshell is known for escaping the winter months by heading to her beachfront residence in the Caribbean. She also owns a home in the Hamptons, New York.
Brinkley appeared in SI Swimsuit eight times between 1975 and 2004. She made three consecutive covers in 1979, 1980 and 1981. Then in 2017, she appeared in the magazine at age 63 alongside her daughters Sailor Brinkley-Cook and Alexa Ray Joel. The women posed on the beaches of Turks and Caicos.
In 2019, Brinkley spoke to Fox News Digital about the key to feeling good in a bikini — no matter what age.
“I think I feel more confident when I know I’m good with myself,” she said at the time. “When I know I’m eating well and exercising. It just makes me feel good. I think it’s a real value to take care of yourself. We all know we do more when a good hair day. We just do it! And I think it’s the same with taking care of your skin, your diet, your exercise.”

“When you feel better, you look better, but you also feel more energized and confident,” Brinkley explained. “It’s really the results that keep me going. I want that good energy. I want to be able to do things when they come up. If friends call and say, ‘We want to go skiing this weekend, you want come ?’ I want to be able to say yes. And I don’t want to be the one sitting by the fire. I want to be the one on the mountain. That’s the advantage of always taking good care of yourself.
Brinkley also described how essential it is to always keep moving.

“I’ve always loved sports and doing things outside,” Brinkley said. “Whether it’s running around the tennis court, stand-up paddleboarding, skiing, kayaking, biking, mountain trails, I love being active and doing things. It’s so important to keep moving every day, especially at my age now. My enemy is It’s a big mistake for people to think they have to sit. It’s the worst thing you can do. You you have to go to a physical therapist, figure out what’s causing this pain, strengthen your muscles and keep going.”
