An #11 FCAL we haven’t featured on the blog for quite sometime now is Christie Brinkley. In a recent article, she discussed something that many (or nearly all) #11 females struggle with, and that is the desire to be perfect. I think I was 35, and aware of a little pooch on my stomach. We’re so hard on ourselves! I think the way you look is tied into how you feel. The kind of true beauty I hope my readers are looking for is a combination of healthy living and good deeds. The book she’s referring to is her latest, and is titled, “Timeless Beauty: Over 100 Tips, Secrets & Shortcuts to Looking & Feeling Great.

From Bo Derek to Cindy Crawford to Brook Shields to Annette Funicello to Faith Hill, some #11 females are just so strikingly similar in looks and behavior it’s almost scary (though not surprising since they share the same motor and cognitive brain regions). Brinkley, in her quest for beauty, has had liposuction, which she admits is “kinda scary.”  She’s also had laser treatments, fillers, and one case of a “disastrous” bout of Botox a few years ago. It made me look like I was punched in the eye, she says. I couldn’t move my forehead. I had to wear hats! She adds, “Botox worked wonders with smoothing out the wrinkles on her neck.”

In typical FCAL “principled” fashion, Christie became a vegetarian at the age of 14 after reading about slaughterhouses, though she admits that she still has lapses here and there (also typical #11 to be lax at times). She grew up admiring Grace Kelly’s simple, classic look, who also happened to be another #11 FCAL.

Imperfections are ok, and growing older is ok. This is something all of us, and yes, #11 females in particular, need to remember. As #11 Audrey Hepburn once said, “The beauty of a woman is not in a facial mole, but true beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It is the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she knows.
