Christie Brinkley is still rocking swimsuits for glossies, but the 59-year-old legend is about to get some serious model competition... from her daughter, Sailor Brinkley Cook. The 15-year-old Instagram aficionado is going pro -- and she's the spitting image of her mother.

Sailor makes her professional modeling debut in Teen Vogue's August 2013 issue. The blonde beauty is interviewed in the mag and even wears a t-shirt with her mom's face on it in one image.

"I was so scared!" Sailor told Teen Vogue of her first professional venture. "I usually just make a funny face or clench up, so I was like, 'Oh my God! Mom, how am I supposed to do this?'"

By the looks of the final product, Christie gave Sailor great advice. Mom later showed her support on Facebook, writing:

I am sooooooooooooo EXCITED for my daughter Sailor! Her first fashion spread ever came out today! In #teenvogue !!!!! I am regramming this post from her Instagram page as my buttons burst with pride! #newgirlintown #fashion #model #goodluck!

Read the rest of her interview over at Teen Vogue. Do you think Sailor has a future as a cover girl?
