Golden age

When it comes to Maye Musk, age is just a number

At 70, you would imagine yourself retired and enjoying a work-free life with your children and grandchildren. But for Maye Musk, it's quite the opposite. The white-haired beauty is a septuagenarian model and still working it. Apart from being a mother of three (tech magnate Elon Musk is her oldest son) and a grandmother of 10, Maye is also a model, and has been one for the past 50 years. While she has appeared in numerous advertisements and magazine covers over the five decades, it wasn't until recent years, however, that her modelling career reached a new high. After signing with IMG Models in 2015, in the past year, she has starred in Swarovski Mother's Day campaign, walked in the Dolce & Gabbana Alta Moda show, and was announced as the new (and the oldest) CoverGirl's spokesmodel. If you think she's going to slow down anytime soon, think again.

 

 

 

With a Master's degree in dietetics and another in nutritional sciences, Maye Musk's key to ageing gracefully may be from her holistic health practices, but when it comes to style, she's got it down pat. A style star in her own right, from the FROW at Jonathan Simkhai's Autumn/Winter 2018 show to the amfAR Gala red carpet, you can spot her striking ensembles and perfectly coiffed hair from afar. Not one to shy away from prints and colours, count on Maye to rock the boldest of looks, and look good in it. Scroll through for some of her best looks below:
