Martha Stewart, 81, smiles and waves to fans as she steps out in NYC...after slamming work-from-home

By Ashleigh Gray For Dailymail.Com,


Martha Stewart appeared to be in good spirits as she stepped out in New York City on Wednesday.

The 81-year-old Sports Illustrated swimsuit model looked as if she has been spending some time in the sun.

She had a very deep tan and her hair was blonder than ever.

The mogul donned a chambray shirt with light brown pants. The New Jersey-born star slipped her feet into a pair of tan, strappy sandals with a modest platform.

Martha smiled and waved to fans on the street as she walked through the Big Apple.

The Manhattan outing comes after Martha spoke out about working from home.

In an interview with Footwear News she argued that people cannot 'possibly get everything done working three days a week in the office and two days remotely.'

The multihyphenate detailed her tight work schedule and revealed that she 'continued to work five days a week' during the coronavirus pandemic.

Stewart is worth an estimated $400million through her Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia empire, which deals in publishing, broadcasting, and product lines.

Her comments come at a time when an increasing number of companies are offering their staff a hybrid work model.

Some businesses ask their employees to come in just two-and-a-half days a week.

She noted that many French companies allow their employees to take a long period off work during the summer, with many receiving 30 days a year of paid vacation.

'Look at the success of France with their stupid… you know, off for August, blah blah blah,' Stewart said.

'That's not a very thriving country. Should America go down the drain because people don't want to go back to work?' she asked.

The Martha Stewart Living founder told the publication that she was on a 'rampage' to get people back into the office.

Last month the octogenarian covered Sports Illustrated 2023 Swimsuit issue - making her the oldest woman ever to appear on the front of the magazine.

The publication's other cover stars were Megan Fox, Kim Petras, and Brooks Nader.

The businesswoman - who called posing for the magazine at her age 'historic' - showed off her figure in 10 different swimsuits.

One image showed her standing in red one-piece with a plunging neckline, while another featured her smiling at the camera in a white bathing suit and orange shawl.

She was photographed by Ruven Afanador in the Punta Cana area of the Dominican Republic.

While reflecting on the experience, Martha explained that she 'doesn't think about age very much,' but admitted that being a part of the magazine at 81 was definitely a big deal to her.

'When I heard that I was going to be on the cover of Sports Illustrated Swimsuit, I thought, "Oh, that’s pretty good, I’m going to be the oldest person I think ever on a cover of Sports Illustrated,"' she said.

'And I don’t think about age very much, but I thought that this is kind of historic.'

'Age is not the determining factor in terms of friendship or in terms of success, but what people do, how people think, how people act, that’s what’s important and not your age,' she added.
