ON THE BRINK: IMG Models has signed Christie Brinkley and her daughter, Sailor Brinkley-Cook, for exclusive global representation in modeling, marketing and commercial endorsements. Brinkley, who has appeared on more than 500 magazine covers, has been teaching her teenager the ropes. Her blonde-haired 15-year-old high schooler appeared in Claire’s Accessories’ “Back to School” campaign featuring the band One Direction.
The mother-daughter team traveled to South Africa and Kenya last month, in support of the First Lady of Kenya’s “Hands Off Our Elephants” campaign and antipoaching campaigns of the U.S. and South Africa.

IMG Models’ Ivan Bart said, “Christie’s appeal is timeless; she is a legend in the business and continues to successfully expand her fashion presence and impact as a humanitarian, health and fitness advocate. Sailor is also a classic beauty, who I’m confident will have many opportunities to explore in the world of modeling and beyond.”
