Christie Brinkley really can do it all. The repeat SI Swimsuit model is also a mom, an entrepreneur, and at one time, a Broadway star.

Brinkley made her Broadway debut in 2010 as Roxie Hart in Chicago, a role she then reprised two years later. Earlier this week, Brinkley shared a great throwback image of herself from her time on stage.

The 69-year-old mom of three wrote in her Instagram caption that she once attended the Academy Awards ceremony at Pantages Theatre in Los Angeles with her parents. Years later, she returned to perform Chicago on the very same stage.

“It was a night I never forgot!” Brinkley shared. “Many years later I was headlining the National Tour of @chicagomusical and I was excited to play my hometown of Los Angeles… and then I find out I would have the distinct honor of playing Roxie Hart on that very stage where I watched stars like Audrey Hepburn and Carey Grant!”

In the photo, which was captured at Chicago’s opening night at the theater, showed Brinkley in a white costume dress as she grinned for the camera with her arms thrown above her head.

Plenty of Brinkley’s 840,000 followers on the platform were quick to comment on both the historic venue and the mogul’s full-circle story.

“How fabulous!!! ❤️❤️❤️,” a fan gushed.

“Gorgeous pic, with a great backstory,” another follower added.

“A stunning picture too Christie. I wish I would have been able to see you perform. Take care XXX,” one person wrote.
