At the start of the year, Brinkley room to her Instagram to share a sultry mirror selfie of her in a black swimsuit. While her banging body should have been the topic of discussion, Christie chose to make her hair color take center stage.

In the caption, the 65-year-old explained that she was scheduled for a coloring appointment before she left New York three weeks ago. However, she seduces she wouldn’t do it and “go easy on my hair.”

Fortunately, Brinkley’s decision to postpone her appointment brought out her actual hair color as she recalled:

“As a result, I have gone back to my roots ...and boy was I was ever surprised to see my “nature’s highlights” are more silver than gold!”

A fan persuaded:

“Embrace the silver. Your real beauty is inside, and it’s always been and continues to be reflected outwardly.”

Others opted for Christie’s iconic gold hair. Some other users didn’t care about what hair color Christie chose as they believed she was stunning regardless.

Christie’s hair fiasco came days after she supported the positive body image movement with a throwback photo. As revealed by Daily Mail, Christie shared a throwback bikini photo from a 1977 Cosmopolitan cover shoot. 

In the caption, she praised the modeling industry for being more inclusive and appreciating all “shapes and sizes.”

In 1977 this bathing suit caused a stir! At the time all the bikinis were low slung on the hip.This high leg cut made the hip a new erogenous zone. I couldn’t figure out how to put it on as just one string holds it all together! Francesco Scavullo shot all the covers for #cosmopolitan back then . He had a big umbrella with a string that ran from the middle of the umbrella which contained a light to the tip of your nose . You were in perfect light at the end of that string. They did not have retouching back then so they really perfected the make up and every strand of hair. I remember I was worried that I looked fat. I’m so glad that today our industry appreciates all shapes and sizes so we can just focus on being healthy. Not cookie cutter. Still there is something in some young girls that often makes them feel they just don’t measure up . I was one of them. I look back at these and think that worry was such a waste of time. If only the perspective we gain with age that alleviates the worries, could be passed on and absorbed by the younger generation ...but I do think shifting the focus to feeling great is a giant step in the right direction. Just thinking out loud as I sift thru a few photos . Wishing everyone a great day ( and decade! ) #1977 #kamali #swimsuit #cover #christiebrinkley #cosmo #confidence #bodyimage

Christie showed off why she is indeed an amazing model in a high-cut purple bikini that had a string tied on her belly button. 

Aside from being a youthful-looking supermodel, Christie uses her brains to get the bag as she is an entrepreneur and owner of the Bellisima wince collection, all of which amount to her $100 million net worth as noted by CheatSheet.

Away from being a celebrity, CloserWeekly mentions that Christie is a doting mother to her three children, Alexa Ray, Jack Paris, and Sailor Lee.
