Christie Brinkley ''always'' wears a bikini when she is gardening.
The 63-year-old model and actress has revealed she will happily strip down to her skimpy swimwear when she is pruning the bushes or pottering around her house so she can get a ''little colour'' to her skin without getting any tan lines.
Speaking about her everyday attire, the blonde-haired beauty - who graced the cover of Sports Illustrated Swimsuit magazine three times - told PEOPLE: ''I always put a bikini on and say, 'Oh, it is just to wear around the house. I am not going to go anywhere in it. I just want to get a little colour while I am gardening'.
''I run around trimming my begonias to even everything out so I don't have any tan lines.
''When you're naked, you want those parts tanned.''
Christie - who has daughters Alexa, 31, Sailor, 18, and 22-year-old son Jack - believes if a woman of any age and size if ''brave enough'' to don a skimpy bikini, they should continue to do so regardless of any critical comments they receive.
She said: ''You know what? You can't really critique a person over 50 -- it is just like, if they are brave enough to put on a bikini then you let them be.''
And the star makes sure she protects her skin when she is in the sun and will layer on the sun cream.
She added: ''I don't care how much sunblock you put on, when you're outdoors as much as I am, you're going to get some colour.
''Where I live there is a side of the island that is the hotel area, and I end up paddle boarding down when I don't intend to be there.''
These albums are not nearly as appreciated as they should be.
Listen to her new song 'Callous Copper'.
They might sound like they're from the 70s, but they way they roll is very 2020.
'U Kin B the Sun' is an album rich in texture and depth and one that quite obviously, and unapologetically, plays to Frazey Ford's strengths.
Listen to their new single 'Small Change'.
Lissy Taylor's 'Mayday' might be born out of distress, despair and some despondency but it rails against the negativity of bad relationships.
