Covergirl Names 69-Yr-Old As Their Newest Model & Her Photos Are Stunning.

Dozens of successful models and celebrities have donned the cover of CoverGirl magazine, most of them young women. But last year, CoverGirl made a change.

Last fall, CoverGirl unveiled its first cover boy, followed by the first CoverGirl to wear a hijab. This year, the diversifying continues as they reveal the latest model: 69-year-old Maye Musk.

The announcement was made on Wednesday, and we could not be more excited. Musk is not only stunning, but she’s a fabulous example of beauty and poise at any age.

“Aging has been good for me,” Musk told the New York Times. “You develop confidence, you’re able to handle the knocks a little easier. I model for my age. I’m not trying to hide it and say I’m 50. I’m so proud that I’m going be 70.â€


So proud, in fact, that she stopped dying her brown locks once she turned 60. “I don’t dye my hair. It’s so fabulous.”And what happened when she let her gray show? “Suddenly I have all these editorials and bookings, and everybody is loving it.â€


But Musk is more than just a pretty face. She has 2 MS degrees, is a dietitian and a nutritionist, and has been modeling since age 15– that’s over 5 decades.

“I always modeled part time, thinking it would end. And it hasn’t, of course. ‘Just getting started’ is my hashtag.â€

Musk is also mom to three kids– and her family’s resumes are stacked.

There’s the entrepreneurs, Elon, billionaire founder of both PayPal and Tesla, and Kimbal, co-founder of The Kitchen Community and Square Roots, which are urban farming nonprofits. And her daughter Tosca, is a successful producer and director.

As far as Musks’ career goes, she has no plans on “disappearing” anytime soon: “People are living longer and enjoying their lives more and know they don’t have to disappear at 65 when they retire. I will never retire. My mom never retired. I’ll work until no one wants me anymore, and then I’ll find something else.â€
