It's hard to believe it was more than 28 years ago that model Christie Brinkley appeared on the cover of Shape. Today, with her eternally bright smile, age-defying blond locks, and still-fit physique, the 58-year-old doesn't look a day over fabulous.
Fresh off her run on Broadway playing Roxie Hart in "Chicago," Christie reveals how she stays on her toes when it comes to maintaining her super-toned dancer's body.
Sneak It In
"Some days I don't have time for a full workout, but I do have to dry my hair, right? So rather than just stand there blow-drying, I do several kinds of leg squats at the same time. I believe in multitasking."
"I just launched my own anti-aging skincare line, called Christie Brinkley Skin Care. Everything is vegan, cruelty-free, and as organic as possible."
Dress the Part
When I heard I got the part in "Chicago," I went out and bought a bunch of Danskin pieces to work out in. I wanted to look and feel like a pro when I'm doing my routines."
Pump It Up
"I've gotten into the habit of cranking out a set of push-ups before each show to get my blood pumping and find my focus. I worked my way up from eight to 30. That was a real accomplishment."
"At Thanksgiving, I always start at the top of my list and say I'm grateful for friends, family, and good health. Then I get more superficial … like being thankful for my Louboutins!"
Grow a Garden
"I have an organic garden and love being able to say, 'I'm going to see what I can pick to throw in my salad.' This year I have a bumper crop of red, yellow, and green peppers. I slice them, drizzle on a little olive oil and balsamic vinegar, and broil them. Delicious!"
