Martha Stewart and Megan Fox heat up the SI swimsuit cover in 2023! Stewart, 81, made waves when she was announced as one of the four cover models for Sports Illustrated’s 2023 Swimsuit Issue, joining actress Megan Fox, Kim Petras, and Brooks Nader. The lifestyle guru has since been praised by supporters and critics alike for her bold decision to participate in the shoot. Her appearance has sparked conversations about ageism, body positivity, and breaking societal norms. Take an exclusive look!
The Lifestyle Guru Says She Loved Doing the Cover
Martha says she loved doing the shoot and thinks it’s important to be “real” in her images. She hopes the photos will help people stop focusing on aging and focus more on living well, which is something she’s always been very vocal about. She credits good health and a balanced diet for her smooth skin and toned figure. She also believes in the power of Pilates and yoga, saying, “It helps to keep you young.”
The Magazine’s Bold Move
It’s no secret that Sports Illustrated is a leader when it comes to breaking beauty standards. Their annual Swimsuit Issue has featured women of all shapes and sizes and has been praised for its commitment to inclusivity. However, Stewart’s inclusion as the oldest woman ever to grace a Swimsuit Issue cover is truly groundbreaking. Her presence sends a message of empowerment that beauty is not confined to youth and anyone can feel confident in their own skin at any age.
The Former Business Mogul’s Pose on the Beach
For the 2023 Swimsuit Issue, Stewart posed in several swimwear looks on the white sands of Cap Cana in the Dominican Republic. She wore various suits, including a plunging red halter and tan bikini set paired with oversized sunglasses and a huge straw hat. She also posed in a metallic black-and-silver zip-up suit, and was captured underwater in a tan one-piece.
She’s the Oldest Woman to Be on an SI Cover
Many are surprised that Stewart was selected for this year’s issue, given her age and past struggles with addiction. She’s since embraced her sobriety and is now a proud mother and grandmother. She says that she’s a better person now than she was in the past and hopes her cover will encourage others to live life on their terms.
Fox, a former Maxim model, first broke into the acting world with her role as April O’Neil in the 2007 blockbuster Transformers. She has gone on to star in movies like Jennifer’s Body and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles franchise, but she’s most proud of her three children. She says she’s excited for her debut on the Swimsuit Issue cover and hopes it inspires others not to give up on their passions.
