Christie Brinkley Brings the Bling

Christie Brinkley 014There are about a million and two reasons why I love Christie Brinkley. Not only is she beautiful inside (really) and out, she’s also deeply committed to the environment and is passionate about helping others. She’s also a gem on the red carpet–she’s playful and fun, very, very generous with her time and never takes a bad picture. As a result, she’s my most favorite celebrity to shoot.
I got the opportunity to sit down with her last May for a one-on-one interview in her dressing room at the Ambassador Theatre when she was headlining “Chicago” on Broadway. I couldn’t believe how nice she was (and not press nice, that’s different) and how intelligently and passionately she spoke about matters close to her heart.
Last night, she saved the day at the 10th annual Live @ Club Starlight benefit for the Ross School. Cyndi Lauper, slated to give a performance at the fundraiser and THE big draw for the photographers there, decided not to walk the red carpet. Of course, we weren’t told that until we got there, natch. But Christie, who was the Gala Chair and the only other celebrity in attendance, made up for it by giving great photo, as always.
