Famous for her modeling, and having signed the largest contract in cosmetics history with CoverGirl, according to Brinkley herself, Brinkley also eventually gained fame for her series of marriages. She began with French artist Jean-Francois Allaux in 1973, who she divorced after eight years. Next came Billy Joel in 1985, with whom she had one child, with the marriage ending in 1994.
Real estate developer Richard Taubman came next in the same year, with Taubman proposing to Brinkley while she was still married to Joel. They divorced a year later. Finally came architect Peter Halsey Cook, who she married in 1996. They had one child, and divorced in 2008. UPI/Monika Graff.
