A raucous preview for the much-anticipated Vacation was released today and there were many allusions to its predecessors including model Christie Brinkley’s unforgettable cameo as the “girl in the red Ferrari.”
The red-band trailer features National Lampoon’s Vacation stars Chevy Chase and Beverly D’Angelo but a question many folks have been asking is, “Who’s the woman driving the red Ferrari?” It turns out that the answer can be found, like the original R.F.G. Christie Brinkley, on the cover of Sports Illustrated’s Swimsuit Edition!
Yep, the beautiful woman who gets a grown Rusty’s attention is 2015 cover girl/model Hannah Davis.
In a random bit of bathing suit synergy, Brinkley and Davis appeared together before in this promo for Air New Zealand.
In addition to her ability to look amazing in a bikini, Hannah is also known for being retired baseball great Derek Jeter’s current girlfriend. She recently stepped out with “The Captain” at the Met Gala.
You can check out the trailer and discover Hannah’s cinema fate here (in true Vacation style, it’s a little too ribald to embed).
Wave bye-bye Hannah (you can click on any of the images in this post for a zoom-in view of Hannah Davis in HD).
