The Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue features an ‘historic’ debut as cover girl by Martha Stewart, who is 81 years old.

At the age of 81, Martha Stewart defies expectations as she graces the cover of the renowned Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, marking her debut as a cover girl.

Alongside three other notable stars—Megan Fox, Kim Petras, and Brooks Nader—Stewart stands out as the oldest individual to be featured in the 2023 issue.

“When I found out that I would be gracing the cover of Sports Illustrated Swimsuit, I thought to myself, ‘Oh, that’s quite something. I might just be the oldest person ever to appear on a Sports Illustrated cover,'” Martha Stewart candidly shared. “Age isn’t something I dwell on, but I recognized the historic significance of this opportunity.”

The 81-year-old jetted off to the picturesque Dominican Republic for her exhilarating photoshoot.

During an interview with Today hosts Savannah Guthrie and Hoda Kotb, Stewart expressed that she saw this endeavor as a personal “challenge” and believed she had risen to the occasion.

For her moment in the spotlight, Stewart donned an impressive array of 10 different outfits. However, the final decision for the cover featured a striking image of Stewart wearing a white bathing suit, accentuated by a plunging neckline, and draped with an elegant orange shawl over her shoulders.

Age doesn’t matter

While the TV personality achieves a groundbreaking feat by becoming the oldest individual to grace the cover of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, Martha Stewart emphasizes that age holds little significance in her life.

“Age doesn’t determine friendships or success. It’s the actions, thoughts, and behaviors of individuals that truly matter, not their age,” Stewart expressed.

In a recent conversation with InStyle, Stewart discussed the recognition she receives as a “genuine sex symbol” at her age.

“I see myself as a teacher. I aim to inspire others by showing them that they can look and feel fantastic. There’s no reason to walk around with a slouched posture,” she shared, referring to her viral thirst traps on social media.

Martha Stewart’s remarkable appearance and her approach to aging serve as an inspiring example for all of us.
