As she approaches 70, supermodel and timeless beauty Christie Brinkley continues to captivate the world with her radiant presence and youthful spirit.

While many may wonder what sorcery or elixir she possesses to defy the passage of time, Brinkley herself is ready to unveil the extraordinary secret behind her ageless visage.

During a candid interview, the age-defying icon opened up about the mindset that to this day has her feeling the same as she did when she was “approaching 30”.

“I feel strong,” she told People.

“I pretty much feel, as I’m approaching 70, the same way that I felt when I was approaching 30. I feel good.

“I feel like the number doesn’t match my spirit, so I may as well just keep spiriting on.”

Although Brinkley is surprised that she doesn’t feel her age, she believes that focusing on one’s age won’t help you “feel any better about it”.

“I’ve been shocked by not feeling the way I thought I was supposed to be feeling at that age,” she explained.

“I don’t believe that focusing on age is going to make you feel any better about it.”

Brinkley also revealed the simple yet profound principles that have kept her feeling forever young.

“I think curiosity in the world around you and just wanting to do something with each day, that is what keeps you young and going,” she said.

Not only does Brinkley continue to age gracefully, but she has also recently embraced her beautiful grey hair, much to the delight of her adoring fans.

Taking to social media recently, the 69-year-old shared a cozy photo of herself at the beach with her greying roots emerging through her iconic blonde hair.

“Grey sky! Gray hair! The second you see gray hair it raises the question, just like when you cut bangs keep or not to keep?” Brinkley captioned the photo.

“Thank goodness both are just a personal preference or a fun change of pace.

“My son thinks it looks cool, but I think I may want to wait till it’s more like the silver whitecaps than the grey wave itself!”

Fans were quick to share their adoration for Brinkley’s new look, many commending her for fearlessly embracing the ageing process.

“I mean if you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say it at all. She’s a beautiful woman even if she chooses to grow her hair out – beauty standards are really awful and unsustainable – aging is a gift. She is gorgeous,” one fan wrote.

“Go natural to encourage more women to embrace the beauty of aging gracefully. Nothing wrong with silver/gray/white hair. It’s all about how you own the beauty of it,” commented another.

“Let your Silver come thru. I just started this journey. I’ve started following so many Silver Sisters on Instagram and it’s so supportive and wonderful. It’s actually turned into so much more for me!”

Brinkley proves that age is no barrier to feeling great and getting the best out of life, her advice proving that having a youthful spirit lies in maintaining a vibrant spirit and zest for life.
