Throwback Thursday

Christie Brinkley :: Walter Iooss Jr./SI Christie Brinkley :: Walter Iooss Jr./SI

Throwback Thursday is a time to look back at the models who made SI's annual swimsuit issue the iconic part of American culture that it is today. Few models had as much to do with its popularity than Christie Brinkley. The Michigan native appeared in seven Swimsuit Issues (1975-76, 1978-81, 1989, 2004) and was the first model to appear on three consecutive covers (1979, 1989, 1981). In addition to SI, Brinkley famously appeared in the movie National Lampoon's Vacation and has appeared on over 500 covers including Vogue, Rolling Stone, Esquire, Glamour, Newsweek and others. She's also the subject of Billy Joel's famous song Uptown Girl, which was written about the model before the duo got married. She most recently played Gayle, the wife of perennial loser Jerry on the NBC sitcom Parks and Recreation.
