Christie Brinkley just received a backhanded compliment on one of her Instagram photos. The 64-year-old supermodel posted a recent photo of her striking a glamorous pose in only a yellow suit coat and heels, captioning it, "Yes I wear the pants... but only when I feel like it."
Most of the comments were very positive, calling her "beautiful" or "vibrant." One even went so far as to applaud "all the clean living and wise choices [she's] made to eat well and stay healthy." However one user decided to leave a comment that didn't sit too well with the star, saying, “She looks old now but still pretty!"
Brinkley wasn't about to let the comment slide. She responded: “Hey looking old is a compliment in ‘wine speak’ so thanks!”
This isn't the first time Brinkley has spoken out about ageism. In an interview with People earlier this year, the supermodel stated that “I have to constantly be reminding people that my age group matters, that we are relevant, and that we want to be represented.”
