Christie Brinkley Looks Totally Gorgeous! Good Skin Care or Plastic Surgery?

Who would have thought that after 45 years since Christie Brinkley was first discovered by a professional photographer in Paris, she would still look so unbelievably gorgeous today!

This classic American model just don’t age for “some” reasons…

Sure, we all know that she’s got her own skin care cosmetics brand with moisturizer cream, serum, makeups, and everything. But when you’re over 60 years of age, these beauty products just seem like child’s play in terms of anti-aging effectiveness, right? (Yes, it might slow down…but let’s be honest!)

That’s why so many people believe that Christie’s face and body had help from cosmetic surgery, otherwise the only other possible explanation that we could come up with is that…she’s simply not human!

Okay, we’ll take that back but we’re definitely not stopping until we find out the truth.

So is it good skin care or plastic surgery?

Let’s dive in!

Before and After Photos

Year 1975

After being discovered by Eileen Ford Modeling Agency, Christie was immediately booked for three national advertising campaigns. At 22 years of age, she was living the American dream, all thanks to her beautiful face, slender body, broad shoulders and silky tan skin that was perfect for beach photoshoots.

Year 1979

Christie was the first international model who’s appeared on the front cover of Sports Illustrated magazine for three consecutive years in a roll, featuring in 1979, 1980 and 1981 issues. You can see that her upper body was quite flat back then. In other words, she didn’t have much boobs.

Year 1983

Christie appeared in her very first film, National Lampoon’s Vacation, back in 1983 as the hot girl driving in a red Ferrari. One of her most distinctive features has to be her face shape and wide jawbones. While most girls these days would want a jaw reduction surgery to contour their jawline, but for Christie, it was her ticket to success.

She also has the perfect pointy chin to compliment those wide jaws and let’s not forget her beautiful smile too. Christie was born with a straight set of white teeth so she definitely didn’t need any cosmetic dentistry.

Year 1992

Throughout the 80s and 90s, Christie Brinkley literally dominated the front covers for numerous large publications and magazines. She was also one of the few top models to have signed a record 25 years long modeling contract with world known cosmetics brand, CoverGirl.

Year 1997

Okay, people, this is the first money shot here! Just take a look at her increased bust size and if that isn’t enough to convince you that Christie’s had breast implants, we honestly don’t know what will…

Year 2000

At 46 years of age, Christie is looking truly amazing with radiant skin starting from her face down to her neck and arms. Her cheeks also look very plump here so you have to wonder whether she’s used some types of fillers here.

Year 2002

We’d really like to know which plastic surgeon performed Christie’s breast augmentation procedure because while we could tell that it’s fake due to her past photos, the way her cleavage and breasts are shown here appears very natural. Remember, we are talking about surgical skills done in the 1990s….so boob job well done!

Year 2004

Supermodel Christie Brinkley arrives at the 2004 Sports Illustrated swimsuit magazine, celebrating the 40th-anniversary issue in New York City. Now does this look like a woman who’s 50 years old? Seriously, whatever she’s been doing with that body…whether it’s liposuction, tummy tuck or simply a good diet plan, please keep it going!



Year 2008

Although Christie has been married 4 times, including the famous six times Grammy Award winner, Billy Joel. Her much publicized 2008 divorce case with architect Peter Cook took the most out of her. The stress was clearly showing on her face and if you look at those wrinkles around her forehead, it’s very likely that she’ll get a brow lift to correct that area.

Apart from that, the rest of her face is basically wrinkle-free! The most notable area is her eyes so either she’s been using some really good eye cream or serum, otherwise, an eye lift procedure would be the only possibility.

Year 2009

After finalizing her divorce, Christie is looking visibly tired trying to adapt to her new life. Her hair looks dull and dry, but you can almost tell that she’s using Botox injections to help her around the cheekbones and mouth area.

Year 2012

Wouldn’t you be “extremely” happy if you could look like this at 58 years old? You can literally say from the bottom of your heart that this matured woman is seriously hot! The red lipstick, the wavy blonde, and when you add those lavish eyelashes to match those sparkling blue eyes, there’s just no way you can fault this combination.

But then…it all came down to her splendid skin. Yes, it’s obvious that she’s gone through a very professionally done facelift and neck lift procedure. Just look how smooth and tight her skin is…it’s almost like baby skin! So the big question here is…who did Christie Brinkley’s face lift? (We really want to know!!)

Year 2014

Here she is looking as glamorous as ever at the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit 50th Anniversary Pink Carpet celebration in New York. Despite her flawless and wrinkleless skin, you have to ask yourself…how does she stay fit? What is her fitness plan and what’s her exercise routine for all these years?

Year 2015

Christie Brinkley launched her very own Authentic Skincare line in 2015 and she claimed that she has worked closely with a dermatologist, Dr. Doris Day, to develop the unique formulas that largely contributed to her unlined skin.

Given that the former beach model was in constant sun exposure while modeling around the world, so we have good reasons to believe that with her past experience and knowledge, her beauty products does work to a certain degree. Or let’s just say you don’t like this at 61 without some sort of secret beauty tips.

Year 2016

Up until now, we have yet to find any evidence suggesting that Christie has had a nose job. There have been no changes spotted on the shape of her nose, the bridge or the tip. However, her chin appears to be fuller and rounder here, but instead of a chin reshaping procedure, we think it might just be the type of botulinum toxin that she’s been injecting to achieve that augmented effect.

Year 2017

Here is Christie in 2017 looking as alluring as any 63-year-old woman could ever possibly be. It seems like she may have gotten herself some lip injections here as both her upper and lower lip appears to be plumper than before. Thanks to her eye makeup and dazzling hairstyle, her complete look is very easy on the eyes.

What Does Christie Have To Say About Cosmetic Surgery?

Back in 2015, Brinkley shared an article to the Dailymail explaining how difficult it was for her to look good at 61. She’s also admitted to undergoing anti-aging procedures including Botox, fillers, laser and other skin tightening treatments.

She shared her experience with having neuromodulators such as Xeomin or Dysport injected into her forehead and neck.

Having Botox injected into my forehead was a disaster. Looking back, I don’t even know why I bothered. Instead of making me look serene and relaxed, Botox took the arch out of my eyebrows and made me look sad. My face lacked expression and I couldn’t wait for the effects to wear off. I never tried it again in my forehead.

After spotting vertical bands in her neck, she enquired about what could be done and her doctor recommended injecting small amounts of Botox into the strings around her neck.

It worked wonders to relax those muscles and it also tightened my double chin area and jawline. The best part is that you don’t have to worry about any expression being lost or changed.

She then gave a few tips on using dermal fillers, stimulating collagen production using radiofrequency such as Tripollar and how to choose the right doctors.

Christie Brinkley Before and AfterChristie Brinkley Before and After

In a new interview exclusively with People, Christine explained how these cosmetic procedures has been helping her look as good as she feels.

But I’m almost 64. At a certain point, you might need a little something extra. When I look in the mirror, I want to feel like I look as good as I feel. And if you can have something done to feel more confident and better about yourself, then you feel like your face matches your spirit—and my spirit is enthusiastic and energetic.

She then bragged about one of her favorite Ultherapy treatment which uses ultrasound to stimulate new collage and elastic tissue. Although she did feel bad talking about using this non-invasive and non-surgical assistance.

I wondered if people would think I’m phony and fake, but it’s better to be honest and say, ‘Yeah, this is what I do.’

 



Conclusion

Well..looks like Christie have come out of the woodwork and admitted that even though she runs a skin care company, she still needed additional help to sustain her youthful appearance. Perhaps it was a combination of both.

The funny thing was, she’s never actually admitted to having any surgical enhancement procedures done. Sure, there wasn’t much we could find in terms of her bone structure, her arms, legs or her butt. However, we certainly found sufficient evidence suggesting that her perky breasts didn’t come naturally…unless of course, they just expanded out of the moon like how Sofia Vergara’s Breasts did. Very unlikely!

And then there were rumours claiming that Christie and her daughter, Alexa, both visited a cosmetic surgeon together at the Lenox Hill Hospital as reported by Huffpost. The younger one was believed to have gotten herself a rhinoplasty while the mother got a face-lift.

How much of that story is real and has Christie Brinkley ever had plastic surgeries?

As usual, we’ll leave that for you to decide…
