For the 50th anniversary of its swimsuit issue, Sports Illustrated brought together a number of cover models from years past for a Legends photo shoot, and among them was, of course, Bridgehampton’s Christie Brinkley, who was the cover model for three consecutive years.

Brinkley also attended the Barbie Celebrates The 50th Anniversary Of Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue party Monday in New York City, wearing a stunning orange dress. Check out the photos she shared on Instagram:

And check out the behind-the-the-scenes video, including an interview with Brinkley, from the Legends photo shoot at swimsuit.si.com. Brinkley graced the cover in 1979, 1980 and 1981.
