After announcing hiring Issa Rae and Ayesha Curry, CoverGirl made another groundbreaking announcement: Maye Musk, at 69 years old, is their newest star.
Maye Musk is more than a stunningly beautiful face. Maye holds two Master’s degrees and has worked as a dietician and entrepreneur in addition to being a model since age 15.
Oh, and yes, she’s the mother to Tesla’s Elon Musk.
And can we add that she’s insanely humble as well? On Instagram, her official announcement was nothing less than inspirational.
I'm so excited to say that I'm now officially a COVERGIRL! My three kids, ten grandchildren and I have had the hardest time trying to keep it a secret until today's big announcement. Who knew, after many years of admiring the gorgeous COVERGIRL models, that I would be one at 69 years of age? It just shows, never give up. Thank you COVERGIRL, for including me in your tribe of diversity. Beauty truly is for women of all ages, and I can’t wait to take you all along this amazing journey with me!

And how adorable is it that hashtag #justgettingstarted? This is coming from a woman who just walked the catwalk at New York Fashion Week (#slay). But we’re convinced that she’s right- we’ll be seeing bigger and bigger moves from this silver haired muse!
We can’t wait to see the beautiful new advertisements coming from this new lineup of Ayesha, Issa, and Maye.
All three are modern contemporaries and staples of pop culture, and CoverGirl’s willingness to embrace inclusivity of all ages and races is a major win! 🙌
