Mogul Mom: Christie Brinkley Covers July’s Social Life


Social Life July 21 2017 Cover

Christie Brinkley looks amazing in the July issue of Social Life magazine! She recently hosted the 6th Annual St. Barth Hamptons Gala, presented by Social Life and St. Barth Tourism, on Saturday July 22nd, benefiting the Bridgehampton Historical Museum.

Brinkley, 63, has three children from her previous marriages: Alexa Ray Joel and Jack and Sailor Cook. Read excerpts from her interview with Lizabeth Zindel.

On her bucket list:

“I want to drive across America and sail around Greece and Sicily. I want to see the Aurora Borealis and the icebergs before they disappear. I want to speak fluent Italian and learn to dance hip hop,”

On what makes her laugh:

“My kids and friends, my puppies, music, trying to dance, SNL, Stephen Colbert, and trying to yodel always cracks me up.”

On her love for animals and her work with “Hands Off Our Elephant”

“We were looking for elephants to be in the background of our Sports Illustrated Swimsuit pictures when we suddenly broke through some bushes, and I found myself eye to eye with a surprised and angry mother protecting her baby. She raised her trunk and trumpeted a warning! If I had large ears, I would have flapped them back at her [but] we clapped our car doors to show that we meant business too! We were two moms willing to die to protect our babies. I knew from that day forward I would always love and try to do my part to protect this matriarchal society of loving, intelligent, majestic animals.”

She makes the 60’s something to look forward to. What an inspiration!
