Elon Musk’s mom has become the newest face of CoverGirl cosmetics at the age of 69.
The beautiful and youthful Maye Musk joins fellow CoverGirl models Sofia Vergara, Katy Perry and Zendaya.
An icon in the beauty industry, Maye has worked for decades in the modeling industry and also holds two master’s degrees in nutrition and dietetics – now we know where son Elon gets his brains from!
CoverGirl released a statement saying, “Maye Musk is not only a timeless beauty, but a visionary who has always followed her own path, creating new opportunities and paving the way for so many others who might not meet the industry standard of ‘model’ but are truly beautiful in every regard. This is exactly what CoverGirl is all about: Owning your identity and proudly sharing with the world all the facets that make you, you. She is an affirmation of the power and importance of diversity and inclusivity in the world of beauty.”
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!
