What's the secret to maintaining supermodel status well into your 60s?

For 62-year-old Christie Brinkley, at least part of it is eating sweet potatoes as a snack. And apparently, she's been a convincing spokeswoman for the vegetarian movement long before she became one of the most successful supermodels in history. "I've been a vegetarian since I was about 12 years old," Brinkley, a Michigan native, told Shape magazine. When I became a vegetarian I got my mom and dad to become vegetarian, and my brother became a vegetarian."
