Christie Brinkley, famous model from the 70’s and 80’s, walks the catwalk on February 7 at NYFW for Elie Tahari. It’s official, ageism is on the decline at NYFW!!  It was so great to see Christie at the show, and everyone went wild when she came out!! Christie wore a gorgeous green velvet pant suit with a green satin tie around her neck with lustrous sparkled beads on the bottom.

Not only did Christie model, but her daughter, Sailor also modeled.  The apple does not fall far from the tree when it comes to Sailor and her mom.  Sailor is a beautiful young woman, and who knows?This may be the start of another Brinkley-Cook modeling career.

How great it was that Elie Tahari had the good sense to put a mother and daughter on the runway!  All in all, it was a homerun. A Mother/Daughter runway moment and Elie Tahari embracing a model who will turn 66 later this month, Christie Brinkley. Wow. And, the clothes were beautiful too.
