71 and fabulous, Maye Musk is a dietitian, model and media’s darling. She has been in the modeling industry for 50 years, and is slaying on her Instagram page with fashion week pictures these days. If her name sounds familiar, it’s because it is – she’s Elon Musk’s mom.
With her hard-working attitude, positive outlook and a healthy lifestyle, Maye is paving the way for women who want to follow their passion and live life elegantly. In the world of celebrities who promote body image issues through teen plastic surgeries and fake-ish diet teas, she is the positive role model we need. We can all agree we want to be her like when we’re 70.
In fact, we want to look like her now. Forget age-appropriate dressing, Maye Musk’s wardrobe is the fantasy of every fashion-lover! She can’t seem to have a bad-fashion day, no matter what interview you spot her in. And interviews are aplenty on YouTube if you aren’t caught up yet – Forbes, CNBC, Business Insider, and many more.
Mama Musk recently walked the Philipp Plein FW20 runway in the most extra six-inch heels. In the past, she has also been the cover girl for magazines like Elle, Vogue and Grazia.
And people, including Karlie Kloss, can’t stop raving about her new self-help/motivational book ‘A Woman Makes a Plan’. We saw the two together in 2017 when they modeled for a Swarovski diamond campaign.
Now if only we could get that Keeping Up with the Musks show someone in the video’s comment section is talkin’ about, we’d all start loving reality TV again.
