CoverGirl is often celebrated for its diverse partnerships — from signing their first CoverBoy to their first CoverGirl in a hijab, it’s no wonder landing a deal with the beauty giant is such a huge deal.
Well, the cosmetic brand has done it again with their newest CoverGirl, 69-year-old Maye Musk. With the model’s impressive list of accomplishments and five decades in the modeling game, it only makes sense that she was chosen to join the ranks of amazing CoverGirls including Ellen DeGeneres and Ayesha Curry.
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!

In an interview with The New York Times, Musk said, “I just love that CoverGirl wants to do diversity. They haven’t had a model this old in their campaigns. I’m turning 70 in April of next year. I think that women will be really inspired to see that even at 69 you can get a beauty campaign.”
Yep, forget age before beauty…why not age is beauty? Let us know what you think of the big news in the comments below!
