Christie Brinkley May Be 62, But These Photos Prove She's Benjamin Buttoning Through Life

02/02/2016 at 02:00 PM ET

It’s Christie Brinkley‘s 62nd birthday today. That’s not a typo. The model is SIXTY TWO, even though we think she’s completely ageless and is bathing in some magical fountain of supermodel youth. So it’s no surprise that the eternally youthful star is still landing major campaigns. Her latest? With NYDJ, which makes sense since she’s the OG of the denim-on-denim outfit. Please reference the amazing split photo below.

The pic on the left shows Brinkley in 1990, at the age of 36, looking like a teen in a fabulous chambray shirt, high-waisted jeans and a cowboy hat at the Scenery-Greenery cocktail party benefit in Montauk, New York. Fast forward to a few days ago and see Brinkley still rocking the Canadian tuxedo (at a NYDJ event in N.Y.C.), this time in her 60s. Same amazing smile. Same amazing hair. Same youthful glow.

Brinkley told PeopleStyle on set of her NYDJ shoot (which she stars in alongside Bridget Moynahan, Ashley Graham and Lana Ogilvie) that she’s still a jeans and a T-shirt kind of girl, which she proved recently wearing boyfriend John Mellencamp’s concert tee.

“I think concert tees either have to be extra small or extra big,” she advised. “Really small ones go great with flares, especially right now, and you can leave an inch above your belt and it’s very ’70s. Very big concert tees are the ’80s. We used to cut the top and bottom to have it go off the shoulder.”

As for the longevity of her career, Brinkley said she still follows the same rules she did when she started 40 years ago.

“Be professional, arrive on time, and never complain,” she shared of the advice she would give to young models. “Most importantly, always know how lucky you are and have a good time. We’re not doing brain surgery here! So, come with a good attitude, make it fun for everyone around you and then go home…and do brain surgery. ”

Can you believe Brinkley is 62? Are you a fan of her career? Sound off below.

I Love Christie on

Wow. What a beautiful woman. She is still sexy and fine at 62. And before someone screams plastic surgery other people get plastic surgery and they still don’t look as good as Christie. She has great genes and she also takes care of herself and she proves having fun doesn’t have to stop once you reach a certain age. Definitely my aging role model.

Lucy on

White don’t crack!

Ally on

I’m 44 and have more wrinkles than she does. There must be something in the champagne…

Mrs. B on

She looks awesome!

vivian on

Looks aren’t everything. She’s been married like what, 4 times? Beauty or not, that is sad.

Sharon on

Genetics play a big part as to how you age… Also eating healthy
at least 80% of the time and cardio/weight lifting is the fountain
of youth!

Vivian: Who are you to judge? Sounds like an interesting life to me! It beats staying married for 50 years and being miserable!
A lot of people stay married because they don’t want to be alone…
or they can’t afford a divorce… all kinds of reasons! When you get married really young, like she did, it changes your view on marriage, I think… She has 3 beautiful children, and they love her!
She is a great mother!

Erin on

Obviously she looks great! Not sure why she is dating LeatherFace Notorious Smoker Mellencamp? Polar Opposites :o)

Kate on

Gorgeous! Just shows you what clean eating and regular exercise can do. She also has a great work ethic, and a nice family balance. Lucky gal!!

grace on

Please! People ran a story a number of years ago that she had plastic surgery along with her daughter with Billy Joel. I know People has forgettable stories bur shouldn’t someone on staff remember …..
