Christie Brinkley, 57, is currently appearing in the musical “Chicago on Broadway and she’s been great for business, packing the house every night. Whoopi Goldberg, 55, is younger and still busy on “The View,” but appears more resigned to being a grandmother by the looks of her outfit.

    Cristie looks lovely as she always does, but lets face it Whoopie knows she has never fit into the “glam girl” model of female. I thought she was a charming doll tho in Color Purple when she was still young.

    Half of the “problem” if it even IS a problem, (and I have nothing to speak about being 59 myself) but I’d DEARLY love to see Whoopie get a wonderful real makeover. Her clothes, tho comfortable, look horrible and give her body an overall “blob” effect. I know there’s more to that woman underneath there than that, but her “fancy dress up” outfits always dissappoint and make her look like a clown. I don’t really think that’s her intention, but if it is, congratulations Whoopie, you’ve succeeded!

    There are different types of women, so a comparison is useless. Christie was born in 1954, while Whoopi an year later, whats the big deal? Christie has some Botox and surgery done and looks plastic like crap, still not worse than others, while Whoopi has always been natural. In this case, thanks, but I vote for Whoopi.

    Christie Brinkley seemingly looks good in the picture, but she doesn’t even look like herself anymore. Not sure why Whoopi is wearing glasses since she always seems to be looking over them.

    Christie is forever young, even though that loped sided pose with the over exposed left breast and the too-much tummy look in a dress that by all indications is too tight can still give her something to smile about. As far as multi-award winning Ms. Goldberg, forget fashion.Regardless of her enormous wealth, Whoopie will always have that Salvation Army look that she has learned to master. I think I would have a coronary if I actually saw Whoopie Goldberg looking glamourous!!

    Christie must not have looked into a mirror to see how ill-fitting this dress is. One boob pushed up, lopsided bow and a little belly on her. She has had so many nips/tucks I hardly recognized her. Plus, it seems she is on the prowl now for a man. She’s had a lot of bad luck with men, as we all know.

    RE Whoopi, I think when Baba Wawa hired her on the VIEW, that Whoopi made it clear that she is dressing the way she wants to and she will not wear glam clothes and high heels.

    Whoopi looks like an extra in a Harry Potter movie. Still, I’d rather look like her, than Christie. She is a lot more interesting and more of an Individual for all her eccentric ways. Christie is just another surgically/Botox enhanced typical aging celebrity

    Whoopie is deeply steeped into being an arrogant critical harpy.. Let me teach ya all to hate what I hate, scorn what I scorn, be what I am.. perfect, then take off.. and don’t bother me, don’t look at me.. don’t notice me.

    Oh yeah, Whoopie has bow legs and is self-conscious of showing them.

    I love Whoppie, she can’t be bothered with fashion, just wants to be comfortable.
    I say good for her.
    Christie looks great.

    Christie should be ashamed of herself parading around like that, what a pathetic mess of a woman. Poor Alexa!

    I guess beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Do you think a woman who is a supermodel, who IS very beautiful but who’s daughter recently tried to commit suicide, allegedly because she thought she was unattractive compared to her mother, is more beautiful than a woman who totally owns and accepts herself for who she is then I guess Christie is the BIG winner here!!

    Seems to me that being that beautiful would be a full time job. But I guess. Christie has the time and obviously the money, to work full time on herself. Seems a little bit narcissistic considering she is not gaining anything by doing it, except of course for her own who’s sake. She is still 57, you can’t falsify a birth certificate, not exactly a spring chicken. The fact is, Christie & Billy split because there wasn ‘t enough room in their bed for both of them and her EGO.

    Whoopi stated on the View that she knows she does not fit the stereotypical celebrity image, but she is fine with that. She dresses to please herself. I say good on ya, Whoop!!

    What Muffin Top! said.

    Are you sure that’s Christie Janet? It looks nothing like her.

    No way!!! on Whoppi Goldberg outfit! A crack head would have to be the only one interested crawling up that outfit, her looks, just total NO! I am still bugging that Frank Langella went out with her or any white man went out with her. Sorry Whoppi that cooch would not be enticing with your looks but some how you pulled it off and god bless you. Looking frumpy on tv is not cute. Christie, has any man stayed with this woman? Even her kid are trying to get away from her and she probably still doesnt get it.

    Whoopi looks like Helena Bonham Carter, who’s another hot mess! And Christie just looks absurd…and oh, so desperate.

    Hey, it’s not easy to look or FEEL like you look good while being comfortable at this age, and I am a few years older than these girls. I think they BOTH look great and got there in their own ways. I don’t hate Christie for trying to uphold her looks, it IS how she makes her living after all. She could look a hell of a lot worse and there are examples all over Hollywood of THAT (Meg Ryan, anyone?).

    I wouldn’t change Whoopies FACE for anything. But, I’d LOVE to see the dreads go after her whole showbiz life, I’d just like to see her get a real nice makeover. Not make-up, but a wonderful new hairstyle that would be easy to keep up as the dreads are. And clothes that are still comfortable but prettier and flattering. She always seems to go for the oversized tent look, like this one. And if she’s going to go for a hat, how about on that actually pretty and flattering to her face and not just a circus distraction.
    If she didn’t hold her head down at that angle, and/or took the glasses off she wouldn’t make her neck look like it has three rolls, which it doesn’t, it’s just back to pose like that.
    Whoopie’s shoes fascinate me tho. They have an interesting shiny surface and color that reminds me of a dragonfly’s wings.

    Christie needs a tummy tuck if she’s going to keep wearing dresses like that. And it looks like she may have resorted to a boob job (sadly). I always liked her for her naturalness, but age catches up eventually and you either go with it gracefully, or give in to the knife.

    I did see a (what I thought was sad) video of Christie on the red carpet in front of mics and her daughter Alaxa Ray Joel hanging back many feet behind her and to her left. Christie was naming her daughter and signaling to her to come over and Alexa looked mortified and was still hanging back and standing awkardly, trying to turn her face partially away from her mother. It gave me a tiny picture of the mother-daughter dynamic that is obviously so uncomfortable for Alexa, but her mother is still so oblivious to her daughter’s feelings. Everybody watching could tell Alexa didn’t want to be coaxed over there by her mother’s loud proddings. I actually felt horrible for both of them. It’s so obvious they need mother-daughter counseling desperately. They just are NOT on the same page and Cristie has NO idea!
    By the way, I think Alexa is a beautiful and talented singer/songwriter and I’d love to see her again. I saw her before on SNL and she was fantastic! Time to make the rounds again girl!

    Well said Muffin Top!!!!

    Plus, if you do a full close up of both of them, you would see that Whoopi has aged much better (and no plastic surgery to boot!).

    Brinkley is beautiful no doubt but it would be more fair to compare her to someone else that is prissy like maybe Kim Cattral?

    Also, some of the clothes that Whoopi wears are actually quite pretty. Most women would rather buy Whoopi’s style of clothes than Brinkleys.

    Jesus the woman is pushing 60 and some of you people are advocating lipo? She looks fine. Some meat in an older woman is good than look like a scraggly thin teenager.

    Amazingly, the Whoopster has rarely been without a man and at the present time she is living with someone in her sprawling mansion (very few know who this person is). Christie seems unable to find a good man, or a man of any kind that will stick with her.

    Whoopie is very much overrated and has managed to live very well on very little talent and no looks. She was a black oddity w/ an unusual name. Had she been a different race and named Selma Goldberg she would have been an unknown.

    Actually, it just hit me that Whoopi’s outfit would’ve been PERFECT for Miss Celie in “The Color Purple”. LOL!!!!

    Love him or hate him, this guy is a loudmouth who doesn’t hesitate to tell it like he sees it- but there’s one thing he NEVER talks about: his prostate problem. Long story short: he LEAKS! He likes to project an image of macho virility, but under his custom made suits are custom made “diapers.” He’s VERY self-conscious and has absorbent but undetectable “panty liners” sewn into all his underwear, to avoid wet spots. Thanks to his arrogant behavior, he has more than a few enemies and he’s terrified his secret will be exposed and he’ll be forever ridiculed!
