Generations of glamour! On Monday Sport Illustrated revealed shots of veteran model Christie Brinkley posing with her lovely daughters for this year's Swimsuit Issue
'My first thought was, "At my age? No way!" When I turned 30, I was like, "This is the last time I’m posing in a bathing suit!"
When this issue comes out, I’ll be 63. I thought, "Those days are over." But to get to do it with my girls, I thought, "One last go!"'
In the spread the exquisite trio shows off their model bodies in matching black suits from the gorgeous beaches of Turks and Caicos.

The three-time Sport Illustrated cover girl told interviewers she hoped that the shoot empowers women who feel insecure about aging.
'In a country that’s very ageist, people love to put you in little boxes. 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.'
