There's no denying that Billy Joel has a "type." That type being gazelle-like supermodels. After dating Elle 'The Body' Macpherson, the singer went on to marry three-time "Sports Illustrated" cover girl, Christie Brinkley, in 1985.

The unlikely couple almost spent a full decade together until they filed for an amicable divorce in 1994, with reasons for the split varying from Joel's infidelity, to where they wanted to live. Of course, the pair can still be seen, happily married, in the video for "Uptown Girl," despite Joel writing the song with Macpherson in mind.
