Martha Stewart, 82, Feels Free to Show Off Her Legs and No Criticism Can Stop Her

6 months ago

At the age of 82, Martha Stewart continues to be a prominent figure known for her expertise in home decor, cooking, and entertaining. Known for her timeless fashion choices, she often opts for classic silhouettes, tailored pieces, and a subdued color palette. Stewart embraces a refined and elegant aesthetic that reflects her keen eye for detail. Although some people have something to say about her preferences.

She’s always in trendy clothes.

Martha Stewart, the queen of hosting and cooking, is pulling off an unexpected stunt in the world of social media. She’s becoming famous for her “Instagram thirst traps” — those sultry, attention-grabbing pics people post to get likes and comments. What’s really crazy is that Martha did this at the ripe age of 82, shattering the image of what you might expect from someone her age.

But that’s not all — in May, she did something that turned even more heads. Martha Stewart graced the cover of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue, making her the oldest person to ever cover the iconic magazine.

Martha’s Instagram adventures and her Sports Illustrated feat have made people rethink what’s considered attractive or sexy. It’s a reminder that you’re never too old to be yourself, break the mold, and show off your confidence.

Martha’s showing everyone that your age doesn’t define your style — you can be attractive and daring no matter how many candles are on your cake. But there might be some people who don’t agree with her fashion choices and have been picking on a few of her pictures to express their disagreement.

Martha isn’t shy about wearing midi outfits.

Martha posted some photos from an event, giving a total Breakfast at Tiffany’s vibe. She rocked an all-black mid-length dress with long leather gloves, big sunglasses, and super fancy bling.

The woman looked really stylish and way younger than her years, showing off her bare legs. But not everyone on Instagram was on board with that — some people praised her looks and charm, while others weren’t too happy she went for the leg show instead of covering up with pants or a different kind of dress.

People had a problem with her baring her legs.

Someone wrote: “With all the makeup on the face, never leave the legs spotty and bare. Perhaps stockings would complete the look.” Others wrote: “Martha, you look beautiful. But I still love sheer hosiery for a finish look. No naked legs for me dressed.”

However on the other hand, the post has been flown with a lot of praising of those who considers her a timeless beauty, and she should wear whatever she desires, donning everything with grace: “Martha, you are blossoming and seem to be enjoying your life now more than ever!! Also, you look fantastic!! Keep it up,” a user wrote.

She always has fun in dressing.

​In one of her recent Instagram posts, where she showed not only her knees, but more her legs, Martha openly shared: “Fun to dress up every now and then.”

And immediately received a condemnation: “Is this a late mid-life crisis? What is with all the put-on glitz and glamor lately? I like who you used to be—a cook, gardener, crafter, teacher, etc. Your expression here is that of an angry model. Enough, please!”

But, of course, she also got a lot of support: ’Martha still out here slaying! You are gorgeous! The epitome of style and grace mixed with fire and sass!"

In one of the interviews, when the outlet asked her about “dressing for one’s age,” Stewart responded with a chuckle, saying, “Dressing for whose age?” She went on to say, “I’ve been dressing the same way since I was 17. If you look at my pictures on my Instagram, I pretty much look the same.”

Stewart added, “Age doesn’t really cross my mind. I believe people are becoming more and more fabulous as they grow older, and I wholeheartedly support all of them.”

Stewart not only redefines fashion norms but also encourages a broader discussion on the evolving perceptions of aging, where people are empowered to define their own paths and continue to shine brilliantly as they advance through life’s chapters. Her words resonate as a celebration of the ongoing, ever-evolving journey of self-discovery and personal expression, regardless of age.

Frequently seen in well-tailored blouses, skirts, and trousers, Martha Stewart exudes a sense of effortless chic. While she appreciates traditional styles, Stewart isn’t afraid to incorporate modern elements, demonstrating a versatility that complements her ageless sense of fashion. So do many other women, who believe that age does not dictate the rules of style.
