    What a good-looking family!

    Sailor Brinkley-Cook and Jack Brinkley-Cook join their exquisite mother, Christie Brinkley, on the holiday cover of Hamptons magazine.

    The gorgeous smiling trio look ready for the winter season, wearing stylish coats and sweaters while walking on a lawn in the cover shot.

    They appear ready for a formal affair, with Brinkley in a red-hot dress, in a photograph featured inside the mag.

    Brinkley's look-alike daughter is following in the footsteps of her iconic supermodel mother, and recently signed with the agency IMG Models. And of course, the former swimsuit icon is giving her teenager some important pointers when going out to various jobs.

    "With kids, you just shout little snippets here and there when you can, so it ranges from 'have fun with this job but always be professional' to 'show up on time and be respectful of everybody else's time,'" the 59-year-old stunner said. "Nowadays, you also have to be aware of the dark part of modeling that comes along with the shiny, light, bright, happy part."

    Brinkley also advises Sailor to buy the magazine if she appears in it, instead of looking at the photographs online.

    "Those comment threads are an invitation for the bitter and disenfranchised to hide behind a fake name and try to tear you down—and nobody needs that in life," Brinkley adds.

    The 15-year-old blue-eyed beauty acknowledges that her mother's name did help her break into this career path.

    "It got my foot in the modeling world, but otherwise it's pretty normal," Sailor admits. "As much as people say we're twins, I don't think I look like my mom that much, so I think I can make my own identity in the modeling industry."

    We might have to disagree with you, Sailor. You are a beautiful mini-me of your mother and it looks like she passed on her enviable qualities to you.

    Brinkley is also teaching her children the importance of animal activism, a cause that is very near and dear to her heart.

    "It makes me proud," Brinkley says. "I always say to them: To whom much is given, much is expected. I also let them know when bad things happen to you, which they always do, the best way to overcome them is to help someone who is in more need than you. That way you forget about your own worries quickly. The more you give, the more you get—it's a cliché, but it's really true.
