Christie Brinkley first posed for Sports Illustrated's Swimsuit Issue in 1979. Almost four decades later, she's back for "one last go." The 63-year-old ex-supermodel is featured in the issue hitting newsstands on Feb. 15 in a red bikini and in a black one-piece next to daughters, Alexa Ray Joel, 31, and Sailor Brinkley Cook, 18, reports People. Brinkley says she needed some convincing to take part in the photo shoot but hopes she can "remove some of the fear of aging" and change how women are viewed in an "ageist" society. On Instagram she adds, "We do not come with an expiration date!" (Chrissy Teigen ended up naked at her post-baby Sports Illustrated shoot.)
