Christie Brinkley has decided to ditch her blonde hair colour and embrace her natural greys.

The supermodel recently asked her fans and followers on Instagram for help as she shared a selfie showing her in a bikini on vacation with her greying hair scraped back into a low ponytail.

"I was scheduled for colour before I left NYC three weeks ago but decided I would go easy on my hair and just do it when I got home... as a result, I have gone back to my roots... and boy was I was ever surprised to see my 'nature's highlights' are more silver than gold!

"Sooo what do you think? Embrace the silver? or go for the gold?" she asked.

Christie's daughter Sailor Brinkley-Cook, who replaced her on Dancing with the Stars after the 65-year-old suffered a broken arm, quickly applauded her mother for embracing her age.

"Yas silver FOX," she sweetly wrote.

Model Nina Agdal, who is dating Christie's 24-year-old son Jack Brinkley-Cook, commented: "Hells yeahhh."

Journalist and TV presenter Katie Couric also weighed in with a message of solidarity, telling the former Sports Illustrated beauty: "If you do it, I'll do it!"

However, the final word came from celebrity hairstylist Garren, who worked with Christie in the 1970s.

"Yes, let it grow out and only add a few baby blonde highlights. Love the contrast," he wrote. "It's cooler."

"That's what I was thinking but hearing it from (the) hair Guru authority seals the deal!!!" Christie replied. "Thanks Garren!"
