Christie Brinkley proves once again that age is just a number.
The 59-year-old supermodel looked gorgeous as she left the "Today Show" this morning (Oct. 21), rocking a low-cut white bandage dress and grey jacket. Brinkley was on the show to talk about the release of a new book, "Sports Illustrated Swimsuit: 50 Years of Beautiful."
The blonde bombshell started appearing in the iconic swimsuit issue in 1975 and posed for her first cover in 1979. She graced the cover three years in a row, which is a record that still stands -- although Kate Upton will follow in Brinkley's footsteps if she ends up being 2014's cover girl.
"When I did my first issue ... I did a picture sort of from the side in a thong and it was so racy at the time," Brinkley told Matt Lauer. "The magazine came out in America and everybody started calling me in Paris and going, 'Oh my gosh, everybody's talking about you. You're in a magazine, you're practically naked!'"
Well, there's no doubt Brinkley, who turns 60 on Feb. 2, would still turn heads if she slipped into a swimsuit for the 2014 issue ...
