This 69-Year-Old is CoverGirl’s Newest Model!

CoverGirl’s newest model was announced this week!

Beauty brand, CoverGirl, has been known to help launch the careers of several models that have gone on to supermodel status such as Christie Brinkley, Niki Taylor, and Kelly Emberg among others.  This week, the iconic cosmetic company announced its latest model who will be representing the brand. So, who is it?  Billionaire Tesla CEO Elon Musk’s mom, Maye Musk!

Not only is Maye the mom of Elon Musk, she’s also 69 years young!  And you might have seen her in the news recently as she walked in three shows at New York Fashion Week 2017 this month! Then, she went to Milan to attend several shows and events there, too.  She’s one busy model who is proving that beauty is for all women no matter what age they are!

Maye is officially CoverGirl’s oldest model ever. She posted on her Instagram account that she was so happy to share the news with her fans and thanked CoverGirl for “including me in your tribe of diversity.” She went on to say, “I’m so excited to say that I’m now officially a CoverGirl! Who knew, after many years of admiring the gorgeous CoverGirl models, that I would be one at 69 years of age? It just show, never give up. Beauty is truly for women of all ages, and I can’t wait to take you all along this amazing journey with me!”

Indeed, Maye is not new to the world of modeling. In fact, she began her modeling career at the tender age of 15 in South Africa!  Now, she is with mega agency, IMG, which is one of the most famous modeling agencies in the world. When asked about the longevity of her career, she said, “When I started modeling at 15, I was told it would all be over by 18. So, this is a complete surprise, a happy surprise at 69.” And when asked how long she will continue to model, she replied, “Forever — until they stop calling!”

Good for her! Congratulations to CoverGirl and their newest supermodel, Maye Musk!
