Combining her modeling experience with her artistic talents and diverse interests, Brinkley's legendary career has been extraordinary and well-respected.

As a successful businesswoman, Brinkley has an exclusive line of organic Prosecco called "Bellissima", from Treviso, Italy, which is quickly becoming one of the fastest-rising brands of Prosecco across the country.
