Can You Guess It?


Almost every American knows this face.  During her 20-year career as a Cover Girl model, Christie Brinkley’s timeless (and apparently ageless) beauty has made her a household name and an American icon.

What’s the key to Brinkley’s success?

That’s right… it’s her smile.

Brinkley calls her smile her “best beauty secret” and credits it with much of her modeling success.

In an interview with the magazine Dear Doctor – Dentistry & Oral Health, she said, “I think my smile was really my passport to success in the modeling industry.”

Although she’s well known for winning the cover of Sports Illustrated Swimsuit edition three times in a row, Brinkley is perhaps even more famous for her wholesome, healthy, girl-next-door loveliness.  And we never see her without her smile!

We have become so used to the expressionless and reserved “pout” worn by so many models in the industry, Brinkley’s radiant smile is like a breath of fresh air.  In her interview, Brinkley says smiling instantly has an uplifting effect on the face and the spirit.

Luckily for her, Brinkley’s gorgeous smile is completely natural, with the help of regular dentist appointments and good oral hygiene practices, of course.

“I lucked out and got my mom’s beautiful straight teeth,” she said. And while she never needed braces, as a teen Brinkley wanted to fit in with the “cool kids,” actually resorting to bending a paper clip to wear as a retainer!

Your smile can light up a room.

While Brinkley was blessed with good genes, not all of us are so lucky (actually, most of us aren’t!). But that doesn’t mean that this ubermodel’s best beauty secret isn’t attainable for all of us.

A smile is “the greatest gift we give each other.”

Christie Brinkley’s smile was the catalyst for her life’s work. As a speaker and advocate for the non-profit relief organization, Smile Train, and a spokesperson for ACT® oral rinse and mouthwash products, it’s safe to say her smile led her to some amazing places.

“I think a smile makes EVERYONE beautiful,” says Brinkley. “It’s the greatest gift we give each other… and today my theory has been scientifically proven, that a smile actually releases chemicals into our brain that makes us feel immediately happier. So go out and SMILE!”
