Covers: Christie Brinkley for Social Life Magazine

The always beautiful, Christie Brinkley, covers the July 2017 issue of Social Life Magazine. The cover, along with the inside photos were shot by Gian Andrea di Stefano.

In her Social Life interview, being released this Saturday, Christie talks with Lizabeth Zindel about her bucket list, her love for animals, what makes her laugh, and more. Here are a few excerpts from the interview:

On her bucket list:

“I want to drive across America and sail around Greece and Sicily. I want to see the Aurora Borealis and the icebergs before they disappear. I want to speak fluent Italian and learn to dance hip hop,”

On what makes her laugh:

“My kids and friends, my puppies, music, trying to dance, SNL, Stephen Colbert, and trying to yodel always cracks me up.”

On her love for animals and her work with “Hands Off Our Elephant”

“We were looking for elephants to be in the background of our Sports Illustrated Swimsuit pictures when we suddenly broke through some bushes, and I found myself eye to eye with a surprised and angry mother protecting her baby. She raised her trunk and trumpeted a warning! If I had large ears, I would have flapped them back at her [but] we clapped our car doors to show that we meant business too! We were two moms willing to die to protect our babies. I knew from that day forward I would always love and try to do my part to protect this matriarchal society of loving, intelligent, majestic animals.”

Brinkley will host the 6th Annual St. Barth Hamptons Gala, presented by Social Life and St. Barth Tourism, on Saturday, July 22nd. The festive evening will feature tasty hors d’oeuvres and an exclusive champagne lounge and guests will dance the night away while DJ Lee Kalt spins the summer’s best hits.
