Alexa Ray Joel on Mom Christie Brinkley: 'She's Really the Most Stylish Woman I Know'

When your mom is one of the most gorgeous women in the world, you tend to pick up a tip or two about beauty. And in Alexa Ray Joel's case, you pick up a few designer hand-me-downs, as well.

"I've learned pretty much everything from mom," Alexa told us before a recent gig at NYC's Cafe Carlyle. "She's taught me a lot about just taking care of yourself — skin care, great makeup tricks. She's very good at putting together that very effortless-style look."

Another benefit of being Brinkey's kid? The amazing ensembles she's inherited from her mom's closet.

"She's got the best style," gushed the singer. "She's really the most stylish woman I know. I'm just trying to keep up!"
