For this issue, Haute Living visited the Hamptons and sat down with modeling legend Christie Brinkley for an inside look into her life as a mother, daughter, activist, and Broadway star.
The gorgeous blonde was candid as she spoke about her early modeling days. "When I started out, models were the proverbial clothes hangers. You were just to be quiet, put the clothes on and do as you were told,” she recalls. “Over the years, models have become brands. There’s endless potential in this career now."
Christie is proud to talk about some of her iconic photographs, but what she says about them is surprising— “I came across an older picture of me that someone had posted on Facebook and I totally remember squirming and feeling very fat while I was shooting it,” she says with a laugh. “And I look at it now and think, I was actually really thin! How is it possible that I felt so uncomfortable in that body?”
Not only a model, Christie has also has many other careers: “I've also been a boxing photographer, I've written a book, I've opened a lot of different businesses, and I've also gotten political. I've become a delegate for the first congressional district of New York," she reveals.
Also in this issue the magazine chats with Wall Street's Wonder Woman, Alexandra Lebenthal, and goes behind the scenes with hip-hop mogul and devout yogi Russell Simmons. It also features a comprehensive roundup of the hautest bars, restaurants, beaches and shops in the Hamptons.
