Christie Brinkley, who first appeared on Sports Illustrated's Swimsuit Issue in 1979, looks like she hasn't aged in 3 decades since her back-to-back splash on the magazine in 1980 and 1981. This time, she poses in a mesh one-piece beside her two daughters, Alexa Ray Joel, 31, and Sailor Brinkley-Cook, 18, on Turks and Caicos Islands. Brinkley is 63.

Good genes certainly run in this family.

In case you're wondering why Alexa's and Sailor's legs are half-submerged while Christie appears to be walking on water, there's an apple box concealed just under the surface, according to the supermodel's Instagram post

As tradition goes in Sports Illustrated, the timeless belle poses solo in a number of skimpy two-pieces. Brinkley shows her flawless skin in this mind-blowing red bikini below.

Though we may find it hard to believe, Brinkley confesses that she has her own insecurities about appearing in Sports Illustrated at the age of 63. Still, she wishes that her return to the magazine will re-ignite the conversation on ageism in the modeling industry and encourage more women to accept their body image. “In a country that’s very ageist, people love to put you in little boxes,” she says. “Women feel very limited by their numbers. On a personal level, I thought, if I can pull this off, I think it will help redefine those numbers and remove some of the fear of aging.”
