Well-known American TV host and author Martha Stewart, who is 81 years old, has appeared in the new issue of Sports Illustrated magazine. Thus, she became the oldest model who has ever appeared on the cover of the sports magazine. Megan Fox, Brooks Nader and Kim Petras were also chosen as heroines for the issue.
“Martha is 81, has 99 Lifestyle books and an audience of 100 million viewers. She doesn’t often think about age, but she admits that the opportunity to star in a swimming costume on the cover at 81 is actually historic,” Sports Illustrated said in a statement.
Editor-in-chief MJ Day noted that all the heroines in the new issue are “constantly evolving”. The journalist believes that Stewart has always “changed with the times and found herself one step ahead.” For the cover, Martha tried on a white swimming costume with a deep cleavage. The image was completed with an orange cape and a ring with a large yellow stone. The shooting took place in the Dominican Republic. The photographer was Reuven Athanadore.
Martha Stewart became famous for her cookbooks. They became bestsellers in the early 1980s. She was later appointed editor-in-chief of her magazine Martha Stewart Living. Her author show soon began to air. Stewart subsequently created Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia, a media holding company in which she combined all of her businesses.
