Christie and her 20-year-old daughter were selected to bring the curtain down at the end of the show personally by Tahari. Chatting to “Page Six Colum” which is part of the New York Post newspaper,
Elie said: “The Elie Tahari brand has always been for every woman, and that is why I’m so excited about having Christie and Sailor walk in our show because Christie is timeless, and Sailor represents the cool, on-the-go woman who also wears our clothes. It is important for me to make clothes for women of all types, inclusive of any age.”
Christie who had daughter Sailor with her fourth ex-husband Peter Cook, is also mother to 33 year old Alexa whose father is singer / songwriter, Billy Joel. Her son, Jack, now 23, was born while married to her second husband Richard Taubman.
The beauty model also admitted that she has had to turn to hair extensions to provide cover for her thinning hair. She said: “A lot of women my age complain about hair thinning, and I get that because my hair is thinner than it used to be as well. I’m big on extensions. “They’re so easy to put in – clip in, one two three, just a piece of cake. And I can use one of my extensions to make a ponytail.”
