At an event in NYC Christie Brinkley was on top of the world — literally!
Wearing a cream-colored dress that showed off her shapely legs, she promoted her favorite charity, Smile Train, at the Empire State Building on Dec. 1, looking far younger than her 61 years and flashing her famous megawatt smile.
There’s a reason she’s smiling even more than usual these days: The former supermodel has found love and romance again with musician John Mellencamp, 64. “I think it’s a very, very exciting time,” Christie tells Closer exclusively.

Since they began dating in September, the happy pair have become inseparable: canoodling over romantic dinners in Manhattan, holding hands at an art gallery and kissing a passionate goodbye on Daufuskie Island, near Hilton Head, S.C., where John keeps a posh private estate.
Even as the weather cools, this couple only seem to be getting hotter! “I am happy,” confides Christie. “It’s very exciting to find that you are open to something.”
