Legend to legend: Christie Brinkley interviews Walter Iooss for Whalebone magazine

Christie Brinkley was the perfect choice to interview Walter Iooss for a recent issue of Whalebone magazine. Both Brinkley and Iooss are legends in their respective fields, and their paths have crossed professionally too: Walter shot Brinkley’s first-ever Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue appearance when the budding supermodel was all of 21.

“We were at the president of Mexico’s private home in Cancun,” Brinkley recalls in the interview. “I was bright pink from a sunburn with a Parisienne permanent—remember that? Since then, we’ve done dozens of shoots together. What was your favorite shoot and why?”

“I remember our first shot like it was yesterday,” Walter responds. “You had a head full of curls, but my favorite was in the Seychelles. I remember us looking at a globe, realizing that we were halfway around the world. Our trip to Bird Island, the beach huts we stayed at in Praslin, that almost flooded the first night from the high tide.”

Brinkley goes on to ask Walter which Instagram accounts he follows (@garyhershorn is one), who he’d love to photograph (actress Margot Robbie), and what he would choose if he could trade in his life to be a superstar in any other profession. Read the interview here.
