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)?

WOW She looks amazing! You go Christie! Your soon to be ex husband certainly doesn’t deserve you! Christie looks soooo radiant and fresh, and better than ever!


i’m so jealous i’ve been trying to find 1 wrinkle but i can’t!

she is so gorgeous!;)

Carly on

OMG, that woman is stunning! Can you believe she is in her 50’s! If she has had any work done, then it is subtle and she has pulled it off without looking contrived.

Rebecca on

Wow! Christie’s the hottest 52 year-old I’ve ever seen! I hope I look that good when I hit 50. Peter Cook is completely daft for cheating and losing such a classy lady.


she looks amazing!

Donald G. on

Those eyes, that smile, her skin, her face, picture paints a thousand words, but she is the poem of beauty. Her picture says it all.

This will be Paris Hilton is thirty years.

Kim K on

You’ve got to be kidding . . . Paris Hilton will look like a nag in 30 years . . . possibly less.

tina on

for who ever said they cant find a wrinkle on her look at her nose and her eyes …..but then again she is in her 50’s she is average

Laura on

yeah she’s a pretty and young looking lady and all and good for her–bet he’s eating his heart out. but I still get the shivers when i see the oily glow of 5 layers of makeup on someone’s forehead. that stuff could make emperor palpatine look like paris hilton…oh wait that’s not so hard. at least personality wise, they’re a match, but the emperor would look better in a dress. anyways not a bad look, but i hate obviously dyed blonde hair with slight roots and too much gel. byebye

Mandy on

she rocks! she is so pretty!

Lisa M. on

This woman is such a classical beauty. When we found out that Peter cheated on her, my husband literally screamed, “YOU IDIOT! You’re married to Christie Brinkley!!!!!!” You go girl!! Keep in shining!!

Stacy on

Before reading this article I had no idea who Christie Brinkley was. When I looked at the picture I thought she was in her late 20s or very early 30s. I read all of the comments above and she’s 50. She looks so good. At first I did not understand why SWEET LILY was looking for a wrinkly. lol

She’s looks so young. I’m blown away

Lillian Gorham on

Everyone keeps saying “Oh she looks so great! Oh she looks so young!” Come on people. She looks like what she is. An attractive, in shape 53 year old. She doesn’t look a day younger.

Courtney on

She looks great!

Chloe on

She looks great!

Carmen on

Christie looks GREAT!!!!! You go girl. Who needs a sh!tty man anyway?

Carrie on

I’m guessing that the people who think she looks like an “average 50 year old” are teeenagers. I wish I could see them at 50. They are going to be shocked by their wrinkles. LOL. Most 50 year olds do not look as good as Christie does.

AnnieM on

She looks FAB as usual! Can’t wait to see her newest Cover Girl ads.

Jen Stone on

This just goes to show that no matter what lengths you go to in order to stay young looking and in shape, your man can still cheat on you w/ a 16 yr. old!

Ammbs on

Christy is truly an inspiration to women.

Erica on

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.

CR on

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

jenny on

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

Sarah on

Beautiful as ever!

Jen on

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

night on

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

wolfy on

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…

pardoo on

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.

Kellye on

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.
