Christie Brinkley is just weeks away from turning 68 years old, but she's not about to hang up her string bikinis just yet.

On Sunday, the 67-year-old supermodel shared a selfie that shares her beating back the January blues in a black bikini worn underneath a cream crocheted cover-up. Checking out her reflection in a full-length mirror while applying lip gloss, the mom of three — who appears to be vacationing in the Caribbean — posed with a straw beach hat covering her long blond locks.

The stunning selfie soon caught the attention of Brinkley's social media followers, who rushed to lavish praise on the "eternally gorgeous" star.

"You are goals for life well-lived!" read one comment.

"Damn girl do you ever age?" asked another commenter.

Indeed, it's been more than 40 years since Brinkley pulled off her Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue hat trick, starring on three consecutive covers in 1979, 1980 and 1981. And according to another recent Instagram post shared during her vacation, she's all about the "beach life."

Despite the attention she's received with her swimsuit shots, Brinkley welcomed the fashion industry's move to celebrate more diverse body types in a November interview with Westlake Malibu Lifestyle magazine.

"Young women used to pick up fashion magazines and feel horrible because all the models were reed thin and they looked nothing like the girls who were reading the pages," she noted.

She also shared how she's trying to lead by example in her own home.

"It’s important that we stop comparing ourselves to other women,” Brinkley said. “Everyone is unique. It’s also important that as a society, we stop judging people and that we stop using words that are soaked in negativity. For instance, when I refer to certain foods as fattening, my daughter Sailor will say to me, ‘Mom, please don’t use that word. A more positive way of wording it is to say, ‘That food is not healthy for me’ or ‘It’s not going to provide me with the fuel that I need.’”
