Christie Brinkley Praises Jessica Simpson’s National Lampoon’s Vacation Costume

Kim Kardashian may have dressed as herself for Halloween, but for Jessica Simpson, it was a fellow blonde bombshell that she turned to for inspiration. This past weekend, the former Dukes of Hazzard star once again showcased her toned legs in a look-at-me ensemble that drew thousands of likes on Instagram. But it wasn’t a pair of shorts that caught everyone’s eye. The singer and clothing designer dressed as none other than Christie Brinkley, who’s known for her portrayal of the blonde in the red Ferrari in National Lampoon’s Vacation. Just as Brinkley did in the 1983 classic, Simpson slipped into an oversized white shirt that doubles as a dress and paired it with spot-on, sky-high pumps, a geometric belt, and an over-the-top ‘do. Meanwhile, her beau, Eric Johnson, nailed Chevy Chase’s character in the film with a pair of white leather loafers, blue jeans, a pink polo, a beige jacket, and goofy glasses.

So how did Brinkley react to the couple’s take? The 61-year-old star took to Twitter to congratulate the two for their looks. “How cute is this? Our National Lampoon was lampooned to perfection! You guys look hot and hilarious!” she wrote alongside a re-gram of Simpson’s image.
