The seemingly ageless beauty also rocked red lipstick while completing her look with a pair of pristine white pumps. 

Brinkley was at the event that unveiled four Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue cover models – Kate Upton, Chrissy Teigen, Hunter McGrady and Gayle King, making her SI Swimsuit Issue debut at 69.

Brinkley, of course, is no stranger to the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, making history for her three consecutive covers in 1979, 1980 and 1981, which had never happened before. 

The legendary model took to Instagram in mid-March to reveal she was diagnosed with skin cancer.

‘The good news for me is we caught the basal cell Carcinoma early,’ she began in her Instagram post. 

‘And I had great Doctors that removed the cancer and stitched me up to perfection like an haute couture Dior,’ she added.

She then addressed her 900K=plus followers, revealing they can avoid her fate with a simple fix.

‘The good news for you is that all of this can be avoided by being diligent with your sun protection!’ she said.

‘I got serious a bit late so now for this ole mermaid/gardener, I’ll be slathering on my SPF 30, reapplying as needed, wearing long sleeves and a wide brim hat,’ she said.

‘The Doctor was looking at each freckle with a magnifying glass… it wasn’t my appointment so I wasn’t going to say anything but at the VERY end I asked if he could just look at a little tiny dot I could feel as I applied my foundation,’ she said. 

‘He took a look and knew immediately it needed a biopsy! He did it then and there!’ she exclaimed. 

‘So make your own good luck by making that check up appointment today. And slather up my friends!’ Brinkleysaid.
