“I find when I walk with a camera in my hand, I am extra alert and attuned to all the extraordinary beauty that abounds, from the smallest detail of a powdery pistil in a flower to the texture of the sky,” she said.

“Taking pictures intensifies my appreciation and awe,” she added.

Christie Brinkley, who is worth more than $80 million and has been married four times, is lives full time in The Hamptons.

Her most recent marriage ended in a bitter acrimony after her husband Peter Cook cheated on her with a 17 year old girl

Christie Brinkley fought a protracted court battle with Peter Cook where he accused her of only being interested in her fame.

The couple had divorced in 2008 but continued to fight publicly over small amounts of money and accusations of sending rude emails and trading nasty swipes in the press.

The pair reached an out of court settlement last year with Christie Brinkley taking to her Facebook page to express her relief the dispute was settled.

Christie Brinkley wrote: “Once and for all, this is my last word on the subject. Let it be known, that I <<moved on>> from my marriage to Peter Cook the moment a police offer tapped me on the shoulder and informed me that <<my husband had been cheating on me in a two year affair with his 17 year-old-daughter>>. Since that moment, it has been an odyssey of frustration as I have navigated the court system with one goal to find peace and protection for my family from the various forms of abuse at the hands of a narcissist.”


Australian supermodel Miranda Kerr has been reportedly dropped as a Victoria’s Secret Angel because of her “difficult reputation”.

Miranda Kerr, 29, who is married to British actor Orlando Bloom with whom she shares 2-year-old son Flynn, has been let go as one of the main faces of Victoria’s Secrets after her $1 million, three year-contract “was not renewed”.

A source told Us Weekly that Miranda Kerr “has a difficult reputation” and suggested it was the main reason she will no longer walk the lingerie brand’s star-studded annual catwalk show wearing a prestigious pair of angel’s wings, an honor reserved for just a handful of the brand’s top faces.

Another source suggested Miranda Kerr is “not a big seller for VS”, compared to its other Angels like Alessandra Ambrosio, 31, Candice Swanepoel, 24, and Adriana Lima, 31.

She will reportedly still walk in the Victoria’s Secrets’ runway show later this year and will also appear in its catalogue.

The source said: “They can still use her for catalogue, where she will get a day rate, but she doesn’t have to be an Angel to do that.”

Another source told People magazine Miranda Kerr is known in the industry as a diva, adding: “She can be difficult at shoots and appearances. She’s not very timely. She’s standoffish with the rest of the girls.”

But one source added: “If Miranda and Victoria’s Secret part ways it’s not because of her behavior. It’s purely contractual. She’ll be coming back for the show but it’s unclear if she’ll be in future campaigns. But she is definitely one of the most popular models and in high demand.”

Executives from Victoria’s Secret did not deny that Miranda Kerr’s contract has not been renewed, but chief marketing officer Ed Razek insisted he has already invited her to walk in the 2013 runway show in New York in November.

Ed Razek said: “Miranda Kerr is one of the best models in the history of the business – and easily one of the most popular. She is also a consummate professional.”

“Any rumors to the contrary are simply untrue. While her international commitments have kept her away from us more than we’d like over the past few years, she will always be an Angel to me … In fact, I’ve already invited her to walk the runway in this year’s fashion show and, happily, she’s agreed.”

Other Victoria’s Secret Angels include Lily Aldridge, 27, Karlie Kloss, 20, Doutzen Kroes, 28, and Erin Heatherton 24.
