After posing nude on the cover of New YorkMagazine, Maye Musk is once again shaking up the codes. She is the first septuagenarian to pose for a swimsuit edition of the famous magazine.

Maye Musk is in his golden age. The iconic American magazine Sports Illustrated unveiled this Monday, May 16, the front pages of its special “Swimsuit 2022” issue, devoted to swimsuits. Alongside Kim Kardashian, Ciara or the model Yumi Nu, the model and mother of Elon Musk was chosen as the face of one of the covers of this edition. We see her in better shape than ever, posing for Yu Tsai’s lens wearing a one-piece swimsuit that reveals her toned arms. Maye Musk also sports golden earrings in the shape of palm trees that recall the idyllic setting playing out behind her.

“I’m so happy to be in one of Sports Illustrated at the age of 74. It was time !” she enthuses with humor in the caption of her Instagram post. The mother of the founder of SpaceX, in fact, is the first model of her age to pose for the swimsuit edition of the famous magazine. Its 587,000 subscribers also did not fail to react to this landmark news. “We should be proud of our age, and not hide it! Wisdom comes with age and it’s magnificent” enthuses a surfer.

A second birth

“I want to show women that you can be very beautiful at any age.” This is the mantra that pushed Maye Musk to start a modeling career again at 59 years old by leaving her hair natural. Two years after this decision, she appears in the simplest unit on the front page of the New YorkMagazine and his career is definitely revived. Highlight of this rise: Maye Musk appears at the Met Gala 2022, one of the most important fashion events of the year, alongside his son. With this new front page, Maye Musk is getting closer to the heights.
