American model Christie Brinkley knows how to dress. While we never doubted her abilities, she has certainly made as much clear in the many years that she has been making red carpet appearances.

But before we dive into what we have deemed are her best looks, we must point out that her fashion has been on point for decades. While we would love to spend our whole day combing through her hundreds of high-fashion picks, we opted for to narrow down the range so that we could key in on a few of our favorites without overwhelming you (or ourselves). So without further ado, here are some of her best styles from the past five years.

Business chic with a sporty twist

We consider this starting off with a bang. In this look, Brinkley really combined all the best of current fashion: a glamorous business-inspired pantsuit with a pair of vibrant sneakers that speak to her impeccable streetwear taste.

This one pretty much speaks for itself. A simple, but still glamorous pick for an elevated outdoor event. While the dress is a home-run, we have to say, our favorite part is definitely the straw hat.

Blazer dress, but make it bedazzled

Another instant classic, Brinkley rocked this black blazer dress. But she didn’t just leave it at that. She added a bedazzled belt buckle and a pair of silver sparkly mid-calf boots for an added punch.

While it wasn’t what we might call “Wimbledon whites,” this vibrant pairing was perfect for a late summer trip to the US Open. Plus, it was solidly in the midst of the Barbie frenzy—and so on trend.

O.K., we know she’s not wearing pink, but not all Barbies do. We’re talking more about her general powerhouse vibes, and a red silk pantsuit screams “powerful.”

Summer florals and frills

There is perhaps nothing better than a good babydoll dress in the summer. Complete with a bright yellow floral print, a tiered design and puff sleeves, this number is simultaneously cute and glamorous.

Fun and flirty

Now this one is just fun. Its design is understated, but combined with its eye-catching polka dot pattern, it makes for a statement-maker on the red carpet.

Another pantsuit, but pinstripe

We love a good pinstripe, and perhaps especially when it’s not adorning an outfit in the office. This tailored pantsuit is made just that much better by its glamorous take on the black-and-white pinstripe print.

Fiery and fit for the red carpet

Another one that we think is pretty self-explanatory. Of course we found ourselves enamored with a bright red gown—it’s in vogue, after all.
