Christie Brinkley Defies Age, Looks Better Than Ever (PHOTOS)

Talk about winning the genetic lottery: Supermodel Christie Brinkley looked better than ever over the weekend at the Bridgehampton Polo Club. Wearing a poppy tangerine dress and sun hat, the 59-year-old mother of three -- yes, that makes her one year shy of 60 -- continued to blow our minds with her youthful appearance.

Brinkley's famous genes also run in her family: 15-year-old daughter Sailor Brinkley Cook recently made her modeling debut in Bella magazine and Teen Vogue.

On her daughter's similar choice of career, Brinkley told the New York Post: "Modeling is so much fun, you get to see the world. It opens the door for so many opportunities and, yes there are the pitfalls, but with a strong foundation and — my daughter is very smart. I just don’t think she is going to get sucked into the pitfalls. She’s got a good head on her shoulders . . . I’ll be like a bragging mom.”
