Musk is one of the models featured on the cover of Sports Illustrated, which includes a roster of models and icons like Kim Kardashian, Yumi Nu, and more. Musk is the oldest swimsuit cover model in the magazine, something she’s proud of and hopes can be an inspiration to others. “With this cover, I want women to be able to walk on the beach in a swimsuit and not be embarrassed about their bodies,” said Musk to CBS Mornings.

When discussing the offer to People, she said she was shocked when she asked to be involved. “My first reaction was, I could never dream up something like that because why would anyone have a 74-year-old on their cover, especially in a swimsuit,” she said. “I do think it’s going to make women feel more comfortable in their seventies when they swim, as well as women in their twenties and thirties.”

This year, Musk attended the Met Gala alongside her son. The two posed for photographs and had fun together through the evening. She has two other children, Tusca and Kimbal.
