The lifestyle businesswoman, 81, is the oldest swimsuit model the magazine has featured, calling the fact “historic.”

Martha Stewart rocks a plunging white one-piece on the cover of the 2023 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue.

“I like that picture,” Stewart said of her cover shot as revealed it on Monday's ''Today'2 show. 

Stewart posed in the Dominican Republic for the shoot and appears in a total of ten looks.

“When I heard that I was going to be on the cover of Sport Illustrated Swimsuit , I thought, ‘Oh, that’s pretty good, I’m going to be the oldest person I think ever on a cover of Sports Illustrated,’” Stewart said, adding, “And I don’t think about age very much, but I thought that this is kind of historic.”

In a tweet, Sports Illustrated called the cover “epic.”

“When we said this year was going to be epic, we meant it,” SI tweeted.

Stewart’s career began as a model at age 15, before she worked as a Wall Street stockbroker and later started a catering business, which grew into a lifestyle media company.

Stewart’s more recent modeling with social media selfies have gained praise, particularly an image she shared of herself in a pool in 2020.
