Christie Brinkley’s Look-A-Like Daughter Sailor Brinkley Cook Makes Modeling Debut In Teen Vogue
Just call Sailor Brinkley Cook a super daughter.
The 15-year-old offspring of ’80s supermodel Christie Brinkley is following in her mother’s footsteps with a beachy fashion spread in the August issue of Teen Vogue. But despite being a dead ringer for her famous mama, Sailor wasn’t sure if her performance would be picture perfect.
“I was so scared!” she told Teen Vogue of the shoot. “I usually just make a funny face or clench up, so I was like, ‘Oh my God! Mom, how am I supposed to do this?’”
Thankfully, Sailor inherited her mother’s skills in front of the camera and Christie gushed with pride on her Facebook page. “I am sooooooooooooo EXCITED for my daughter Sailor!” the 59-year-old wrote. “Her first fashion spread ever came out today! In #teenvogue !!!!! I am regramming this post from her Instagram page as my buttons burst with pride! #newgirlintown #fashion #model #goodluck!”
Raw modeling talent isn’t the only thing Christie has passed on to her spawn. “She has the best scarves, which I wear with everything,” Sailor said. “When I was young, my best friend and I would try on her clothes and make little videos with her high heels. Little did we know how sacred those Christian Louboutins are!”
Christie also hooked her daughter up with another one-of-a-kind treat when she set up a meeting with Sailor’s celebrity crush, High School Musical‘s Zac Efron. “I pulled myself together and was like, ‘Mom, we need to act like I’m not a fan at all. We’re just peers. We are good.” she said. “He was picture-perfect, of course. I saw him again a couple days later on New Year’s Eve and he goes, ‘Hey, Sailor, do you want to dance?’ I went back to my room afterward and video-chatted every single one of my friends. It was my profile picture on Facebook for, like, the rest of the year.”
Check out Sailor in the August issue of Teen Vogue, which hits newsstands on July 2. Do you think her modeling career will be smooth sailing?
