It was a who’s-who of the modeling industry at this year’s 50th Anniversary party for the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue, as beauties such as Heidi Klum, Marrisa Miller, Chrissy Teigen and Kate Upton were all in attendance, leaving both onlookers and photographers in complete awe.

But probably the person who received the most attention is the legendary model Christie Brinkley, as she showed up on the red carpet in a short stylish black number, looking younger and more attractive then many of the other models half her age.

Amazingly, Brinkley turns 60 in a few weeks, although she could easily pass for someone in her 30s or perhaps younger. In fact, when you compare her photos on the red carpet to that of Ireland Baldwin– who’s 18-years-old and the daughter of Alec Baldwin and Kim Basinger–you might have to look twice to notice the significant age difference.

In a 2012 interview with the Examiner, Brinkley shared some of her beauty secrets and said if you want ageless skin you’ll have to avoid the sun as much as you can. “I’ve given up the sun now,” she said. “I’ve got all the effects now [of being in the sun when I was younger]. I occasionally get hydroxy peels at the doctor’s office to reverse sun damage.”

However, Brinkley still likes a nice tan, so instead of sitting on the beach all day, she’ll use a self-tanning product, but just one–L’Oreal’s Sublime Bronze. It has “no streaking, no stripes, it just applies so easily,” she said. “It’s really just a brilliant delivery system for this product.”

But it isn’t just about skin protection, says the the 5’9 model, it’s also about getting your daily nutrients, and the best way to do that is by choosing veggies with a variety of colors.

“For many, many, many years I’ve always said I go for as many colors as possible in a day,” she explained. “That’s my main concept for making sure my kids get all the nutrients, making sure they get the deep greens, yellows and reads and purples, all of that. That’s just an overarching concept to the way I like to eat, along with the whole idea of variety in exercise, variety in food with the colors. I like to vary what I have.”

  • Who are they kidding?

    She looks great for 60. But that is because of a lot of plastic surgery and she is rich. She has a lot of free time to work out, eat right, and really has no stress in her life. Stress it what kills people.

    She does look good though. I am not a big fan of Ireland Baldwin. She is clueless and I know strippers who look much better than she does.

    What is funny is that teenagers now all look so much older than they are. This woman is exactly opposite. I saw a picture of that Kylie Jenner when she was 15 in a black bikini. She looked 25. It is insane what is happening out there. The funny thing is if you even touched Jenner in my state, you would get a child molestation charge — I am not joking. It would be considered an attempt. However, when you see her get out of her Mercedes and look the way she does. You would swear she was in her 20s. Tough to be a guy in the year 2014. When Brinkley was really hot in the 80s. Young girls still looked like young girls.
