When she posed for Sports Illustrated's annual swimsuit issue at the age of 81, Martha Stewart set a record for the magazine's oldest cover model.
One of four cover models for this year's issue, which honors strong women who "live in a world where they feel no limitations, internally or externally," is the television personality and cook.
"When I found out that Sports Illustrated Swimsuit would feature me on the cover, I thought, 'Oh, well that's pretty good.'
In an interview about the cover, Stewart said, "I'm gonna be the oldest person ever on the Sports Illustrated cover.
And although I don't often consider my age, I did consider that I should look excellent because this is potentially historic.
With Stewart's cover photo, she has surpassed Elon Musk's mother, model Maye Musk, who posed for Sports Illustrated's swimsuit issue in 2022 at the age of 74.
