5. Christie Brinkley

Born February 2, 1954

Why She Sizzles: Brinkley is a goddess. Not only is the radiant mother of three a photographer’s dream, she’s also a fervent supporter of animal rights and the Democratic Party. Again: Goddess.

When We First Fell in Love:  Christie was an illustrator in Paris before she caught the eye of a photographer in 1973. Soon afterwards, her face could be seen everywhere endorsing Cover Girl cosmetics.

Career Highs:

Career Lows:  Brinkley’s career has never hit the skids—but her personal life definitely has.   She’s been in the press a lot lately because her ex-husband Peter Cook is a total sleaze.

“Work”:  Nope. Christie said in a recent interview that she was too “chicken” to try plastic surgery, having seen a facelift performed on TV.
