Let's be clear. Although Christie Brinkley is "technically" 63 years old, she is basically an ageless human.

And she *definitely* doesn't need any Photoshop whatsoever.

But when she decided to make her impressive return to the Sports Illustrated swimsuit edition, the magazine went ahead and tried to edit the icon's bod anyway.

Brinkley's daughters, Alexa Ray Joel and Sailor Brinkley Cook, joined her for the shoot. 

Naturally, it was a bad editing job — but the fail is actually hilarious.

Can you spot the Photoshop fail in a sea of perfection?

The magazine accidentally turned Brinkley into Jesus Christ:

Er, "Christ-y Brinkley" ...?

That's right. Look closer at Brinkley's feet. The model is literally standing on water.

When the Sports Illustrated team selected this photo of Brinkley posing in her black mesh swimsuit, they didn't take into consideration that her daughters are clearly in knee-deep water.

Brinkley is standing right next to the girls, but the ocean water barely reaches the top of her foot. 

As much as we'd all like to believe that Brinkley has supernatural abilities, it turns out the model was simply standing on an apple crate.

But I have to say, seeing the iconic Christie Brinkley back in Sports Illustrated at the age of 63 is still pretty much a religious experience.
