Martha Stewart in The Gentlewoman

The Gentlewoman No 8 Martha Stewart MAIN

The Autumn/Winter 2013 Issue of The Gentlewoman (a biannual UK magazine celebrating modern women of style and purpose) features The Hostess with The Mostest (and then some) Martha Stewart. Martha Stewart – a phenomenal business woman and an entrepreneur with ups and downs – is one of my idols. She has built her business empire from scratch and at 72 years manages to look ever so stylish and classy.

Photographed by Andreas Larsson in Cannes Martha is channeling her inner Brigitte Bardot. Can’t you just hear Edith Piaf singing ‘Non, Je ne regrette rien‘ on the background… All that’s missing is a dashing French gentleman, but Martha has even that covered as she earlier this year put her profile on Match.com.
