Work it! On Thursday, February 7, supermodel Christie Brinkley and her youngest daughter, Sailor Brinkley Cook, walked the runway together at New York Fashion Week for the first time! And when they passed each other on the catwalk, fans nearly lost their minds when the mother-daughter duo gave each other a cute high-five during Elie Tahari’s show.
Although Christie, 65, looked beyond stunning in an emerald green pantsuit at the special event, it was hard for the audience to take their eyes off of Sailor, 30, because she looked equally as beautiful in a short, embellished party dress with knee-high boots. Check out a video of Christie and Sailor walking the runway together below!
“The Elie Tahari brand has always been for every woman, and that is why I’m so excited about having Christie and Sailor walk in our show because Christie is timeless, and Sailor represents the cool, on-the-go woman who also wears our clothes,” the high-fashion designer said before the show, according to Page Six. “It is important for me to make clothes for women of all types, inclusive of any age.”
The Tahari fashion show was definitely a special event for both Christie and Sailor, especially since the young model has spoken out in the past about following in her famous mom’s footsteps. Just a few days ago on Saturday, February 2, Sailor took to Instagram to thank her mother for being such an inspiration to her on Christie’s 65th birthday.
“You taught me to never be bored by life, to always find the appreciation for every little thing. From the clouds in the sky to the bright colors of the flowers I pass by,” she wrote. “You live your life with the perfect balance between unstoppable strength and a gentle flow through this world. You are so extraordinary, mama. Thank you for passing on your appreciation and interest in life and what it holds. Thank you for reminding me to stand strong.”
In a past interview, Sailor revealed the best advice her mom has given her is to always keep smiling. “She always said to just keep smiling,” she shared. “Even if you’re feeling bad, and you’ll start feeling good.”
