Where do you go when you're in Miami? "Yesterday, my son [Jack Brinkley-Cook] was in town staying at the SoHo House and he was like, 'Mom, come over here and have some lunch with us, it's really gorgeous.' I went over there and had lunch. It was great. I love that. I really want to go to Little Havana and get some Cubano food," she laughs. "I'm really loving the whole vibe down here. The hotels have a real laid-back hangout quality to them —they do a nice job kinda making it very comfortable and socialable. We keep bumping into people we know. It's fun." Today, the Hamptons, New York-resident is a passionate entrepreneur helming several successful businesses. Christie worked with leading dermatologists to develop her age- perfecting skincare line, Christie Brinkley Authentic Skincare, which revitalizes skin and addresses the top 5 signs of aging, ranging from fine wrinkles, sagginess, discoloration, age spots, and crepiness. Recently, they added color cosmetics to the mix. "It's really great quality, great prices, and everything does double-duty. Your foundation also has anti-aging active ingredients and moisturizing ingredients. Our lipstick has built-in moisturizer, so it never gets dry. Your makeup lasts all day," she beams. She also has her Hair2wear Christie Brinkley Collection hair extensions; her 24-year-old eyewear, Christie Brinkley Eyewear; and Bellissima, her vegan, organic, 100% natural Prosecco, available in a Brut DOC, a sparkling rosé, and zero-sugar. "Our zero-sugar is becoming our most popular because who doesn't want to have a glass of Prosecco without the carbs, without the guilt?" And there's Bella Sprizz, Christie's brand-new aperitifs: citrus Italiano and elderflower. I am told that the liqueurs taste great mixed in with her zero-sugar prosecco on ice with a sprig of mint and twist of lime. Honestly, that sounds like my kind of cock tail. "Bellissima means most beautiful, and it's for your most beautiful moments in life, to really celebrate them. You can't allow these moments to just be lost. People are so busy rushing around, it's really important to stop. Friends come over, don't just be like, Oh, hey," she says listlessly. "Yay! You came over! Pop a cork." Bellissima Prosecco is also available in small bottles. Just add the topper to the "bambinos" and you're good to go. "Say you're on a boat or walking around at a game…it's portable." Supermodel, author, actress, artist, entrepreneur – Christie has done it all. Which project do you receive the most recognition for? When people approach you, what do you normally hear from them? "A lot of people now are like, 'Bellissimmmaaaa! Christie! Bellissima.' And a lot of women come up to me and say, 'I love the Charm lipstick.' I still, to this day, get people singing to me either, 'Uptown Girl' [the hit song by Christie's second husband, Billy Joel] or 'Holiday Road.' All the time. In New York, I'll hear, 'Yo! Uptown Girl' as they're driving by or I'll hear, 'Holiday Rooooaddd….' from the movie, [National Lampoon's] Vacation."
