American beauty Christie Brinkley
American beauty Christie Brinkley looks phenomenal if you accept the fact that she is 60 years old. Christie Brinkley is the emboidiment of eternal beauty, proving that women are not aging anymore. Even if she had botox, and some other enhancement done to her face, she wouldn't have this youthful appearance without good genes given to her by nature. In addition to good genes Christie Brinkley lives a healthy lifestyle, she is a long time vegetarian and activist for animal rights and the environment. Christie Brinkley believes its time we change our reaction to the numbers as we age. There are 30-year olds that are a lot older than many 60 year olds. "I dont think we should judge our age by the number of wrinkles we have, or how many grey hairs ....but by our spirit".
