"Cover Those Knees:" 78-Year-Old Martha Stewart Sparks Mixed Reactions Due To Her Short Dress

Date February 11, 2020

Should Martha Stewart be considered inappropriate due to her recent look? People are on different sides of the argument at this point.

Life as a model

You may know her as a lifestyle guru and a television personality. But once upon a time, Martha Stewart was actually a model.

She once shared that she considered her experience as a model in Paris to be "really fun." She revealed that she and other girls were constantly busy with work but overall, she "had a great time."

Considering this past in the fashion world, it's safe to say Martha is no novice when it comes to style. However, some people think she did a little too much recently.

Cute or inappropriate?

Martha Stewart divided social media users when she was spotted at the 2020 Vanity Fair Oscars Party.

For the event, the 78-year-old chose a super short black dress with lace detailing that put her legs on display. She accessorized by wearing some gold pearls and topped things off with her signature blonde hairstyle.

There's a lot to love about this look but some internet users expressed that the length of the dress was a little too inappropriate for a woman her age.


Trying to be young and flirty but she should be showing how classy and sexy she can be at her own ageโ€”but, whatever floats her boat!


No, too old Martha. Longer dress.


Look like baby doll pajamas. Cover those knees.


Wrong decision, sorry.

It wasn't all negative reactions though. Some people actually loved that she showed off her legs in this outfit.


Wow her legs look awesome!


I love that sheโ€™s showing her amazing legs! A lot of times even as women age they still have amazing legs and I hate that society thinks older women should cover up! Go Martha and her stems.


Okay, legs.. I love it. Very age appropriate. You go, Martha. ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿฝ


Okay Martha got the knees out ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿฝ

Her beauty secrets

Whether or not you're a fan of this outfit, you have to admit that Martha does look great for her age.

Here are some of her beauty secrets.

  • She revealed to the NYTimes that she makes exercise a daily activity.
  • She also shared that she drinks green juice every morning too.
  • Speaking to Allure, Matha Stewart said that she puts a lot of focus on her skin. She moisturizes, exfoliates, and uses the right soaps.

It's not every day you see a woman in her 70s rocking a short dress. So we have to applaud Martha for being a little daring on this one. She has never been a person who worries too much about people's opinions and we bet she isn't too bothered by the naysayers this time around. Martha clearly feels beautiful and youthful in this outfit. Who are we to tell her otherwise?
