Of all the supermodels of the ‘80s, she’s arguably the most famous (and the most ageless). Since her first jobs in the late ‘70s, she’s been an example of what one can do if they set their sights on a goal and refuse to give up. She’s also using her platform to help lift others up, as well as give new fans a look into the past.
Let’s take a minute to look at the legendary career of Christie Brinkley and the lessons we can learn and apply to our own lives. You’ll also see what people are looking for and where to find her online.
The Michigan-born 64-year-old started her career young after being discovered at just nineteen years old. She studied art as a teen, something that would pay off later on when she painted the cover for then-husband Billy Joel’s River of Dreams album. She’s also shown off a talent for photography (check her Instagram deets below) and acting. That versatility (as well as the passion she has for each) has been hugely important in her success, and something we can take to heart.
What People Wanna Know
A google search for Christie will lead to people asking about her marriage in the ‘80s to Billy Joel, as well as her other relationships. You may also be curious about her children, singer-songwriter Alexa Ray and fellow Model Sailor. All three have appeared in photo shoots together. The most famous shoot would have to be when the trio posed for the magazine that really propelled her into stardom: Sports Illustrated.
Her net worth is currently estimated to be around 250 million as of 2018. That’s not at all a surprise when you look at her career and all she has accomplished.
Christie has basically done it all her decades in the spotlight. From appearing (according to her official bio) in around 500 different magazine editorials/covers, to acting in movies like National Lampoon’s Vacation, and getting into writing by putting together a book where she talks holistic living.
She's illustrated the importance of taking risks and pushing one’s limits by taking on the role of Roxie Hart in Chicago, something that not only got her a ton of praise, but had show organizers asking her back more than once.
She’s the Boss
Christie took her dreams seriously; something else we can learn from her. Like several others these days, she formed a company that serves as an umbrella organization for a variety of brands. She’s gotten into skin care, hair extensions, fitness, and eye accessories. She’s also shown herself to be environmentally and health conscious by putting out a line of organic Bellisima Prosecco and Sparkling Wines — a great lesson in doing business the right way.
As the boss of her social, career, and brands, she’s also been in the position to do a lot of philanthropic work and help support others in the business. The lesson? Generosity goes a long way, and it’s just a good thing to spread positive, encouraging energy.
