Christie Brinkley on Botox! Who would think that the beauty who is all about going natural would inject the poison into her face? In her recent book, Timeless Beauty: Over 100 Tips, Secrets, and Shortcuts to Looking Great, Brinkley reveals that she did succumb to having fillers done. The proud woman adds to her book's title with an asterisk, "who happens to be 61 years old," comes clean about her healthy living style as well as her own Botox disaster.

"It made me look like I was punched in the eye, I couldn't move my forehead. I had to wear hats!"

Gracing the cover of People in a swimsuit at 60-years-old, Christie Brinkley looked ageless, exclaiming "I feel on top of my game," revealing how excited she was at the time about turning 60.

"She had the most radiant smile in the world, and a makeup bag the size of a pencil case!"

Christie Brinkley on Botox is a non-issue. Although she admits to using Botox and other fillers to help her get through the aging process, it is healthy living that is most important to Christie when it comes to looking and feeling great. In her new book, the model allows readers inside to her world of secrets for looking beautiful. She guides one on how to eat healthy, professional make-up application, and fashion tips. Brinkley also reveals the best skincare products to keep skin looking younger, as well as easy exercises.

Good hair days are very important to Ms. Brinkley. She does own up to supplementing her golden mane with hair extensions, noting that a good hair day makes it easier for one to go out to concentrate on what really matters in the world. While others may believe that smiling will lead to wrinkles, Christie prefers to showcase a gleaming smile. An inspiration, her attitude and approach to life makes it evident why Brinkley on Botox and unnatural fillers is not a necessity for Christie in maintaining her timeless beauty.
