Christie Brinkley, 65, flaunts still legendary swimsuit body as she rings in 4th of July with patriotic one-piece
She rose to fame as a Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue cover girl.
And Christie Brinkley proved she still has a knockout summer body as she celebrated the 4th of July this Thursday.
The platinum blonde 65-year-old posted a sizzling Instagram snap where she modeled a Solid And Striped one-piece with an Old Glory motif.

Christie, who once told People she uses the neurotoxin Xeomin to smooth out her frown lines, accessorized with a red and white striped wrap.
Christie has a daughter called Sailor, 21, by her fourth ex-husband Peter Cook – not to be confused with the late English comedian of the same name.
In fact, the only famous husband Christie had was her second, Billy Joel, who is the father of her 33-year-old firstborn child Alexa.
Billy’s 1983 classic Uptown Girl was inspired by Christie – and during a 2014 concert at Madison Square Garden, 20 years after their marriage fell apart, he sang it live for her as she beamed in the audience.

She also has a 24-year-old son called Jack who was sired by her third ex-husband Richard Taubman but legally adopted by Peter.
Christie and Peter’s marriage stretched from 1996 to a rancorous divorce in 2008 after he copped to adultery with a woman he hired as an assistant when she was 18.
Post-Christie, Peter married a woman called Suzanne Shaw, who sniped in 2012 that she had jetted off to Indonesia because of his ‘vengeful’ previous wife.

Suzanne wrote to the New York Post: ‘The black cloud of Christie Brinkley’s hate [that] has hung over our lives for the five years I have been with Peter, and has taken an unhappy toll on me and my daughter’s life – on all our lives. I needed a break.’
Jack sprang to Christie’s defense, calling the claims ‘lies’ and telling the MailOnline: ‘I rarely ever hear my mother or father discuss one another mean while there have been many instances where I have heard my fathers wife mention my mother.’
In 2014, Suzanne left her husband, told Page Six that ‘I fell under Peter’s spell’ and publicly apologized ‘for my part in causing Christie any unnecessary pain.’
