Unexpected model a hit at NYFW!
NYFW 2018 saw the runway debut of Kaia Gerber and welcomed back veterans Gigi Hadid, Kendall Jenner, and Bella Hadid. But who was one of the most watched models this year? None other than 69 year-old Maye Musk! And she also just happens to be the mother of Tesla billionaire Elon Musk!
That’s right, sophisticated Maye walked the Zero + Maria Cornejo Spring/Summer 2018 runway show on Monday! You might not know this, but Maye has been a model for the past 50 years so, of course she looked right at home as she walked the show with ease.
The veteran model wore a striped satin top and bottom with leather slide shoes. She even took a moment after the show to pose with American Idol judge, Paula Abdul! And seeing her gracefully glide down the runway, who would ever imagine that Maye is a grandmother of ten grandchildren.
Proving that life is full of endless possibilities, Maye never believed she would still be modeling at her age. She said, “That would’ve been considered very silly in 1960. 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.”
After the show, she took to her Instagram account and said, “Closing @zeromcornejo runway show. A great way to end #nyfw #model #justgettingstarted.” And as she was getting ready to return home to Los Angeles, she said to her fans, “’Goodbye New York City. Thank you for the memories #NYFW #ss18.”
She also walked in the Concept Korea and Project Runway shows earlier in the week.
Congratulations to Maye Musk who continued to prove that she was just as in demand as models half her age!
