69-year-old model Maye Musk becoming the latest CoverGirl face
Some things are simply timeless, real beauty being one of them. Maye Musk, a 69-year-old Canadian-born model – and mother of three, including Elon Musk, the Tesla and SpaceX entrepreneur – proves that a successful modelling career can span decades. Recently, she has added the badge of becoming a brand ambassador for CoverGirl to the long list of her accomplishments.
“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,” said Ukonwa Ojo, Senior Vice President, CoverGirl, in the company’s press release.
In addition to being a successful model, Maye is a registered dietician-nutritionist with two master’s degrees
Maye Musk was born in Saskatchewan and has been modelling since her mid-teens, starting in South Africa. In addition to being a successful model, Maye is a registered dietician-nutritionist with two master’s degrees (she has studied nutritional sciences at the University of Toronto). In fact, she has run her own nutrition business for over 45 years and currently focuses on wellness presentations to obtain and maintain good health. Maye is passionate about helping children eat better through vegetable gardens in underserved schools with The Kitchen Community (https://thekitchencommunity.org/), a non-profit organization connecting kids to real food, run by her son, Kimbal Musk.
Maye has been chosen by CoverGirl because she embodies the values of this brand, “owning your identity and proudly sharing with the world all the facets that make you, you,” said Ojo. “Maye is an affirmation of the power and importance of diversity and inclusivity in the world of Beauty. She is unstoppable and, together, we’re just getting started!”
