Christie Brinkley is feeling sixty-fine!

The supermodel, who has graced the covers of magazines for decades and is still turning heads with sultry bikini pics on Instagram, is opening up about how she feels on the eve of her milestone 70th birthday.

“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 strong,” she told People.

Brinkley continued, sharing that she feels “like the number doesn't match my spirit, so I may as well just keep spiriting on.”

She noted that age isn’t her main focus because she doesn’t think it will “make you feel any better about it. 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.”

Earlier this year, Brinkley made headlines when she embraced her gray roots, sharing that “the second you see gray hair it raises the question, just like when you cut bangs .. to keep or not to keep? Thank goodness both are just a personal preference or a fun change of pace.”

She has since gone back to her signature blonde locks, noting that ultimately “the important thing is to do what works best for you. People will put pressure on you in every direction.”

“If you don't go gray, some people really make a big deal about it, like ‘Oh, that's so disappointing. She's not owning it. She's trying to do something other than who she is.’ And it's like, no. I believe firmly that if there's something bothering you, take care of it,” she continued.
