“I post these pictures because I hear women my age all the time say, ‘Thank you for changing the way people think about numbers,'” she explained at the time. “Back then numbers meant something. I remember people thinking that after 30 you should never wear your hair past your shoulders or your hem needed to hover your kneecaps.”
“I’ve always found those rules so restrictive,” Brinkley continued. “Everyone is different, everyone is unique. But that’s like telling a gymnast that she can’t somersault past a certain age. It doesn’t make sense. If you have great legs , show them. If there’s something about you that you really loved, celebrate. Don’t let those numbers control you.
When asked if she sees herself appearing in SI Swimsuit again, Brinkley replied, “Hmm, I doubt it.”
“I feel like I was there, I did that,” she said. “I think when I put my swimsuit back on, I also want to get a snorkel and dive, see the fish.”
