Christie Brinkley is smoking-hot at 59: Her yoga workout and vegetarian diet

Supermodel Christie Brinkley turns 60 next month, but looks decades younger, thanks to regular exercise and her longtime vegetarian diet.

"I like to do things and have fun," Brinkley told Us. "I really do use the Total Gym. That's not just advertising."

Christie and her fellow over-40 supermodels Kathy Ireland, Tyra Banks, and Heidi Klum all attended a party celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue in Hollywood Jan. 14.

Not surprisingly, each of the age-defying beauties has her own secrets for looking as youthful and fit as they do.

Brinkley skis, dances and rides her bike. The fit mom of three, who has followed a vegetarian diet since age 12, also does yoga, strength-trains and walks a lot. Christie tries to sneak in calisthenic exercises as soon as she wakes up in the morning.

"I try to get in 100 push-ups every day," said Brinkley. "It's really easy. I keep a rolled up yoga mat under my bed. I'll do 30 push-ups before I get in the shower. Then I do another 20 before I dry my hair, and now I've done 50. After I dry my hair, I'll come back and I'll do more."

Meanwhile, Kathy Ireland, 50, prefers outdoor workouts, while Tyra Banks, 40, does Pilates and cycles. Heidi Klum runs, strength-trains and avoids processed foods. As her four kids have gotten older, Heidi, 40, does sports with them to stay in shape.

"Having kids, I am trying to integrate their activity into my life," said Klum, who swims, jumps on the trampoline and walks her dogs with her kids.
