Christie Brinkley: Looking Good is the Best Revenge

10/21/2006 at 06:00 AM ET

In the wake of her marriage ending in scandal, Christie Brinkley has emerged looking absolutely fantastic. Her stylist Jessica Paster, who recently put Brinkley in a second-skin vintage Herve Leger dress (left), told PEOPLE of the 52-year-old: “She looks better than any 19-year-old that I’ve ever dressed.” We can definitely see why Cover Girl, who first signed Brinkley in 1976 for a twenty-year stint as the face of the brand, brought her back into the fold last year. Who wouldn’t want to look that good (at any age)?

The woman is beautiful. Always has been of my favorite models. I am 30, but I remember her being in ads when I was younger for Cover Girl. She’s just plain gorgeous. And seems so sweet also. Paris Hilton will NOT look like this at 50, cmon! Paris looks older than her right now!! Christie has a youthfulness that defies the calender.

She is radiant! I wish her the best of luck in her new life without her cheating husband :)

I hope I look half as good as Christie does when I’m 52! She has always been gorgeous.

Christie looks awesome for 52…I hope I look that good when I’m her age.

What a fool that man is! This is one great looking and inspirational woman. He will never find another woman who can hold a candle to the beauty and class this woman has displayed

I AM Christie’s age (actually, a couple years younger) and believe me, I don’t look half…no, one-quarter…no, one-BILLIONTH as good as that! Christie looks like she did when she was in her teens and early 20s. I looked good in my teens and early 20s, GREAT in my 30s and early 40s, but by mid-40s my health took a turn for the worst and BOOM! all to hell. But I never was a classic Clairol, Covergirl beauty like Christie. And the hair is real, folks, not dyed. She’s always been a blonde. Go and find Billy Joel’s old video of “Uptown Girl” and see what Christie looked like back in the day, and what she is like now. Nothing’s changed but her age. Guess money, good genes and clean living will do that for you…

Christie Brinkley is just as she has always been – Inspirational. What i am more amazed at is how she has taken the stress and negativity in her life and turned it around into something positive – transformational energy! Good for you for tossing the ball back that’s were the real beauty is anyways and no one can mess with that.

Christie looks amazing! I’ve always thought she was beautiful, but I just saw her newest commerical which displayed her age and my jaw fell open. I had pictures of her on my wall when I was 16, she looks just the same. I thought Tina Turner and Goldie Hawn defied their ages, but Christie has them beat. I’ve alwats admired her clean image and the fact she keeps her life relatively private. She’s not your typical Hollywood-type, she’s a real woman, beautiful inside and out and someone worth admiring. God Bless you and your family Christie!

Whoever commented on Paris Hilton looking like her at 50, better check their eyes. Paris looks trashy now and will no doubt look worse as time goes by. She can’t hold a candle to a real beauty like Christie.
