Martha Stewart is the face of the cover!
The lifestyle guru debuted for Sports Illustrated on the cover of the legendary Swimsuit Issue. The 2023 issue included three additional cover models, including Megan Fox, Kim Petras, and Brooks Nader.
Stewart, who is 81, is the oldest participant.
“When I heard that I was going to be on the cover of Sports Illustrated Swimsuit, I thought, Oh, that’s pretty good, I’m going to be the oldest person I think ever on a cover of Sports Illustrated,” she recalled. And although I don’t think much about my age, I felt that this was somehow historic.
For her photo session, the 81-year-old journeyed to the Dominican Republic.She stated it was a “challenge” for her, but she thought she “met the challenge” in an interview with Savannah Guthrie and Hoda Kotb from Today.
“For her cover shoot, she donned ten various outfits, but the magazine chose a picture of Stewart in a white bathing suit with a plunging neckline and an orange shawl slung over her shoulders.
Age is only a number.
Despite becoming the oldest model to ever appear on the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue cover, Stewart insisted that her age has little effect on how she lives her life.
Age is not a deciding factor in friendship or success; rather, it is what people do, how they think, and how they behave that matters, not your age.
In a recent interview with InStyle, Stewart talked about how people still perceive her as a “bona fide sex symbol” despite her advanced age.
“I’m an educator. I want to demonstrate to others that you can look fantastic. She argued that sharing her popular thirst traps on social media was pointless.
Martha Stewart looks amazing! Her outlook on growing older should be an inspiration to all of us.
