We’re pretty sure no human being should rightly look this good past the age of 60, but Brinkley seems to have effortlessly managed to dodge the whole, you know, aging process. I mean, sure, let’s give airbrushing and Photoshop their dues, but nobody can look that good and simultaneously be a member of AARP, right?
Along with the photo set, Brinkley and her daughters took part in a simultaneously released interview with People magazine, where they talked about everything from starting their respective modeling careers to diversity and body-shaming. No, the irony of three swimsuit models talking about body-shaming doesn’t escape us; but it does help to remember that Brinkley is more than just a pretty face—she’s given tons of money to charity and done work for every organization from the USO to Make-a-Wish.
And yet, while acts of charity are all well and good, there’s something slightly more striking in seeing the three Brinkley women posing in the pages of SI.
