Christie Brinkley, 69, goes topless in stunning throwback photo

Christie Brinkley is simply ageless. The 69-year-old took to Instagram to share a topless throwback of herself on the beach.

The former model captioned the post: “To celebrate Baseball’s Opening Day Today, I’m throwing it back to the time I was hired as a photographer by Pinnacle Baseball Card Company to take the pictures of the two teams that made the World Series Final Game.”

Fans couldn’t help but notice that she has hardly aged since the picture was first shot back in 1996: “Those pics look like they were taken today,” wrote one.

“Your beauty is timeless, thanks for sharing,” commented another.

The post comes after Christie shared her decision to embrace her gray hairwhich she promptly switched back to blonde.

Christie showed up to support her fellow model, Paulina Porizkova, at the Long Island LitFest where she was showcasing her book, No Filter.

The star posed for photos with her friend and there wasn't a gray hair in sight. Christie's tresses looked newly dyed and she no longer let her all-natural roots show through.

Christie had shared her choice to go gray on Instagram with a post in which she was enjoying a blustery day on the beach.

Alongside several photos of herself, she wrote: "Grey sky! Gray hair! The second you see gray hair it raises the question, just like when you cut bangs keep or not to keep?

"Thank goodness both are just a personal preference or a fun change of pace. My son thinks it looks cool, but I think I may want to wait till it’s more like the silver whitecaps than the grey wave itself! The verdict is still out ! Happy Sunday!"

Fans commented: "Go natural to encourage more women to embrace the beauty of aging gracefully. Nothing wrong with silver/gray/white hair," and, "My vote is to embrace the natural beauty of your hair". Others said they preferred her as a blonde, and many said she should do whatever makes her happy.

Last year, Christie made a powerful statement against an article she was featured in with the headline "32 Celebrities Who Are Over 50 and Absolutely Prove That Yes, Being Older is Attractive".

She took to Instagram to share a lengthy statement about how the media tends to categorize women after they've reached a certain age.

While the article was written with positive intentions and said of the women: "not getting older, just getting better," stating that aging is not a bad thing, Christie insisted that common phrases such as aging gracefully "should not be about one's looks but about the attitude and energy one offers the world."
