“1975 I made my first appearance in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue,” Brinkley wrote on Instagram. “Yes! That’s actually me under that crazy Parisian perm done for a shoot in France. I almost didn’t go to the casting call for Sports Illustrated because I didn’t know how to deal with that mop, and I didn’t think I was thin enough. But ironically, They are both the reasons I got hired!” (RELATED: Christie Brinkley Sets The Record Straight On John Mellencamp)
She then reminisced about her first cover shoot in 1979 in a black sequins swimsuit that was partly sheer.
“My First Sports Illustrated Cover in 1979! It was shot in one of the most magical places in the world … a place where every island in the chain has its own distinct personality,” she wrote.
The following year she made the cover again, sporting a white bikini.
Her third cover came the next year in 1981. In the shot, she wore a tiny pink and purple bikini.
In 1988, she was back on the cover when the magazine issued multiple covers. In the shot, she has her back to the camera in a hot pink one-piece suit.
Last week the model shared a photo for the upcoming 2017 issue posing alongside her daughters Alexa Ray and Sailor, becoming the oldest model to appear in the coveted issue. She looked absolutely incredible.
