Christie Brinkley & Daughter Sailor Brinkley-Cook Share The Runway At New York Fashion Week
The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.
The supermodel mom, who just turned 65 on Feb. 2, and her 20-year-old daughter (with ex-husband Peter Cook) hit the runway side-by-side at the fall/winter 2019 Elie Tahari show on Thursday in New York City.
Brinkley was beaming in a forest green velvet pantsuit and matching scarf, while her mini-me daughter turned heads in a short, navy blue velvet party dress with embellished sleeves and over-the-knee boots.
The genetically blessed duo celebrated the moment with a high-five as they passed each other on the catwalk.

“Thank you @elietahari for the honor of my daughter @sailorbrinkleycook and me walking with you on your 45th anniversary of making women feel stylish confident and beautiful,” Brinkley wrote alongside a clip from the show on Instagram. “I never anticipated such a warm welcome and it really touched me! Thank you!”
She then addressed her daughter directly, adding, “Sailor May this be the start of an amazing adventure in this crazy wonderful industry for you… it was a joy to share the runway with you!”
In a post of her own, Brinkley-Cook called it “an honor” to step out with her mother at the show.
“Thank you @elietahari for having me and my mama walk your runway today,” she shared on her own Instagram. “Such a fun time !!”
Not only was it a milestone for the model-filled family, the runway show also marked a major milestone for the designer, who celebrated his 45th anniversary with his show.
Of course, this isn’t the first time Brinkley and Cook have participated in New York Fashion Week together.
Last season, the mother-daughter duo attended Zimmermann and Cushnie, as well as the Harper’s Bazaar ICONS party at the Plaza Hotel, in September 2018.
While this marks the first time the iconic pair has walked the runway together, they have modeled together in the past.
