Christie Brinkley & Lookalike Teen Daughter Sailor Pose Together For The First Time For Bella NYC

Christie Brinkley is one proud mama. The 59-year-old former Sports Illustrated model—who holds the distinct honor of nabbing the cover of three Swimsuit Editions from 1979 through 1981—is proudly passing on the modeling torch to her teen daughter Sailor Brinkley Cook. The 15-year-old recently made her modeling debut inside the August issue of Teen Vogue and now the rising star is gracing the cover of Bella NYC‘s July issue back-to-back with her legendary mom. Safe to say, the girl is a natural.

“Sailor, Chester and me on our first cover together since Sailor started modeling!” Christie gushed in regards to her daughter and her adorable white poodle on her Facebook page.

On the cover, the Brinkley blonde beauties wore matching knit sweaters and sported the same twinkle in their blue eyes. “It seems like yesterday that I was holding her in my arms,” Brinkley told the magazine. “And now she’s standing next to me, this radiant beauty.”

And while Christie always knew her daughter was a stunner, Sailor had her doubts that she could live up to the Brinkley name. “It was only recently that I wanted to get into modeling. I said, ‘Mom, should I diet?’ and she was like, ‘No! You dont need to be skinny, you just need to be happy with yourself and confident and fit.’ All of her photos really show that,” Sailor told Teen Vogue. “She was like a goddess.”

Check out Sailor and Christie keeping it all in the family below. Do you think Sailor has a future in modeling?
