Christie: I’m 65 but my spirit age is younger

Daily Express - - News - By Mark Reynolds

SHE was the “Up­town Girl” and one of the most fa­mous pin-ups of the 1980s.

But former su­per­model Christie Brink­ley proved she is still in ter­rific shape as she cel­e­brated her “50th birth­day for the 15th time” yes­ter­day.

At 65, the former wife of pop su­per­star Billy Joel em­braced her years with a “Milestones of Me” party in New York.

Christie, who was launch­ing a non-sur­gi­cal facelift, looked sen­sa­tional in a gold and sil­ver se­quinned mini dress with match­ing chrome pumps.

The mum of three blew out can­dles be­fore telling guests: “I might be turn­ing 65 bi­o­log­i­cally, but my spirit num­ber is like much younger.

“Women have lived their lives be­ing in­flu­enced by the num­bers, with so many rules about those num­bers.

“But now we ig­nore those num­bers be­cause we’re the gen­er­a­tion that did know how to eat right, that did ex­er­cise.

“I en­cour­age you to get in touch with your spirit num­ber.”

Joel wrote Up­town Girl for Christie and she starred in the video. It topped the UK charts for five weeks in 1983.
