Where do you see yourself on the eave of your 70th birthday? Gracing the cover of a magazine? Most of us would say ‘no’ to that dream, but one woman is stepping up to show the world that beauty isn’t defined by age, elegance isn’t defined by a number, and experience can be just as stunning as youth.
Maye Musk, the mother of Elon Musk, has been modeling for 50 years, and after signing up with a modeling agency at the age of 68. She’s a business owner, a nutritionist, a grandmother, and a model all in one, and when she was offered the spot with CoverGirl, she couldn’t turn it down.
Musk isn’t ashamed of her age, either. She might look younger than her nearly-70 years, but she’s proud of it. She’s worked hard to get where she is, and she is excited to give younger women hope for the future.
Instead of making women feel like they need to look younger to be beautiful, Musk is proving that beauty isn’t a number. You don’t need to “reverse the clock” to be successful. Instead of focusing on missed opportunities, people are inspired to look for the next one.
What does she think of all of her success?
I’m just getting started,” she says.
This inspiring woman won’t let a few wrinkles get her down, and women everywhere are taking notes.
