Sailor Brinkley Cook inherited great genes from her famous mom, Christie Brinkley, and she’s used that inheritance to follow in her mother’s footsteps! The budding model is now making a name for herself as an artist, and she’s trying to do it on her own — without Mom’s help.

The 19-year-old sat down with Entertainment Tonight to talk about the photo shoot she did for Sports Illustrated, shot by photographer Taylor Ballantyne for the magazine’s “In Her Own Words” project.

In it, the teen is just one of the models posing nude with empowering words painted on their bodies, such as “work in progress” and “artist.”

Sailor told ET that it was a great way and opportunity to describe who she is and what she can offer the world. But during the interview, she also admitted that she didn’t tell her mom about the nude photo shoot until the images were ready!

She said, “This was the type of shoot I didn’t want any comments on.”

But what happened once she sent Christie the photos? She says that her mom was totally thrilled for her and thought that the photos were beautiful and artistic!

We can’t wait to see Sailor in more of these powerful and intriguing spreads, and we’re so glad to see that Christie is so supportive of her daughter’s career.

Please SHARE if you think Sailor is absolutely gorgeous and the spitting image of her mom!
