Chicago producer Barry Weissler says, “We are thrilled to welcome Christie and her incredible dedication, focus, and determination that she exhibits. I’m excited to share with audiences the stellar performance that she delivers.”


Throughout her phenomenal career as one of the country’s most successful and recognizable supermodels, Christie Brinkley has appeared on more than 500 magazine covers worldwide. But more than that, she also excels as an artist, writer, photographer, designer, actress, philanthropist, environmentalist, and political activist. Brinkley recently launched a line of natural skin care products as part of her new company, Christie Brinkley Beauty. Combining her modeling experience with her artistic talents and diverse interests, Brinkley’s career over the years has been interesting and dynamic.


A Ford model for over 30 years, Brinkley was discovered by a photographer in Paris at the age of eighteen. Since then, she has become the first model to ever appear on the cover of Sports Illustrated for three consecutive years, and appeared in the publication’s annual swimsuit issues and television specials for years to follow.


In 1976, CoverGirl gave Brinkley her first “big break” in modeling with a contract, which launched the start of a 20-year partnership that marks the longest-running cosmetics contract of any model in history.


Brinkley is known for her commitment to health and fitness. She wrote and illustrated a health and beauty book, Christie Brinkley’s Outdoor Beauty and Fitness Guide, which topped the New York Times bestseller list.


On the big screen, she made her acting debut in 1983 opposite Chevy Chase in the hit feature film National Lampoon’s Vacation and its 1997 sequel, Vegas Vacation. She has also famously appeared in Billy Joel’s classic music videos Uptown Girl, Keeping the Faith, and All About Soul, as well as Mick Jones’ music video Just Wanna Hold.

On television, Brinkley has appeared on NBC’s Mad About You and hosted Lifetime Television’s InStyle Celebrity Weddings, which became the highest rated special in Lifetime’s history. She has also been featured in Vh1’s Pop Culture Icons series. Brinkley has been the subject of many documentaries including the HBO program Beautiful Baby, Beautiful, Lifetime’s Intimate Portrait, and Barbara Walters’ Oscar Night Special.


Brinkley is an active member and dedicated supporter/activist for many organizations including UNICEF’s Art and Entertainment Support Committee, Handgun Control, Ovarian Cancer, Susan G. Komen Foundation, the Cousteau Society, Southern Poverty Law, The Wilderness Society, and stopglobalwarming.org.


She currently lives in New York with two of her three children, Sailor Lee and Jack Paris. Her daughter, actress/singer Alexa Ray Joel, lives in New York City.
