Christie Brinkley has finally revealed the secrets to her impossibly youthful skin - at least one of them.

At 62, the iconic supermodel is as much a topic of conversation now as she was during her Sports Illustrated swimsuit heyday and these days everyone is more concerned with how she hasn't aged a day in the last 30 years.

Brinkley admitted to getting fillers "occasionally" but still avoids botox and any other cosmetic surgery, saying she only relies on fillers and laser treatments to keep her skin in check.

“I’m a model. I want my skin to look its best," she told People. "Some women on my Instagram will say, 'Oh, she’s so fake. It’s not her skincare, she gets filler.’

"And it’s like okay - if I only did filler and I didn’t use my Recapture 360, I wouldn’t have the moisturizing, I wouldn’t have that bounce back. It’s the whole thing. You have to take care of the texture of your skin."

The mother-of-three said she's conscious of what she puts into her body and has an "aspiring vegan" diet, meaning she leans as close to vegan as she can.

"You’ve gotta take care of yourself and share what you do so others can take care of themselves as well. I try to be as vegan as I can be … I try to keep it mainly to the mozzarella now.

"It comes from Italy and I like to imagine it’s just this little cow roaming on a hill and somebody milks it gently."
