Martha Stewart’s usual Instagram posts consist of tropical fruit salad on painted blue Marbleware, updates on her award-winning chow chows, and snapshots of her travels. The businesswoman and jack-of-pretty-much-every trade practically invented having an #aesthetic, and does not post throwbacks to her feed often — which is why her followers were delighted when Martha Stewart posted a glamorous throwback photo from what looks like the ’80s.
In the stunning snapshot, Stewart is perched on the shoulder of a teal armchair surrounded by floral arrangements. She’s donning a low-cut LBD with a heart-shaped neckline, sheer black tights, and heels. Her blonde hair falls in a lob just past her shoulders, and she’s sporting oversized black stud earrings and natural makeup.
In short, she looks *amazing.*
“Gorgeous.” “Va va voom!” “Glam,” her fans hurried to comment.
Stewart purchased the Westport, Connecticut farmhouse in 1971 when she was 30 years old and kept it for decades. In a blog post she called it a “dream place for my family and me for many years,” adding: “It taught us, it nurtured us, it fed us, and it occupied us in so many wonderful and instructive ways. I would not be who I am today without the vast knowledge I gained there, on that small bit of paradise.”
All we can say is, may we all have such photogenic evidence of our pasts to show our grandchildren someday.
