Consider our minds blown and apologies if we’re way late to the party, but we had absolutely no idea that Martha Stewart used to be a model. It took Racked’s coverage of Andre Leon Talley’s appearance on her show this morning to open our eyes.
From their conversation:
MS: How’s everything going?
ALT: Well, the most extraordinary thing was that Karl Lagerfeld was in town and he said to me that you were once a Chanel model, which I did not know. That’s fascinating!
MS: Way before Karl…
ALT: That doesn’t matter! And I tweeted—I said, ‘Did you know that Martha Stewart was once a Chanel model in the days of Coco?’ And people were fascinated.
MS: It was only one summer.
Naturally, we did some digging (read: google searching) and found these amazing images of a very svelte and very young Stewart. We’re in love.
