Why Does Christie Brinkley Have to be on the Right Side of Feminists?

I'm not understanding the fuss here.

Christie Brinkley is 63 years old. She appeared in Sports Illustrated numerous times. She's appearing in it again.

When did she ever say that you have to be just like her and if you're not, you're doing it wrong? She's celebrating being alive and with her daughters. She's just doing what she's been doing most of her life--modeling. Here you have a person who's just happy to find work as a model. Isn't that enough?

When did we start thinking that there was something else that had to go with modeling? Are we mad that she isn't telling everyone what to think and what to do because she looks great for her age? And no, she doesn't have to look great for her age to have value. She has value because she's a person who is basically able to do what she used to do. When I think of Christie Brinkley, I think of a model. 

I don't worry about the other stuff, and neither should you.

Cover Your Shame


I don't have the heart to show you the shot that everyone is mad about. I thought about it, but there was just too much Kardashian butt crack for that to work for me.

I will say this--whoever put her in these clothes should have warned her that she would look bad. A celebrity image industry run by Kim Kardashian that makes this kind of a mistake is one that is going off the rails.

This is the state of modern celebrity. No one believes that Kanye is really with her because he loves her. And no one believes that Kim Kardashian can wear see-through grey without underwear without realizing what she's showing to the world. Everything is fake, everything is a fraud, and I don't need to see that level of detail any time of the day.
