Forget About Son Elon; Maye Musk Making Model’s Comeback With TV Ads

It would appear that most people have heard of Elon Musk and his enormous wealth through ventures like becoming the CEO of electric-car manufacturer Tesla and co-founding the online payment system called PayPal.

However, someone close to the famous businessman is trending big time on social media.

It’s his mother, Maye Musk, and she also possesses quite the entrepreneurial spirit and has relaunched her modeling career at age 70. According to a report in Forbes magazine, the striking mom of billionaire Elon Musk is quickly building a new portfolio of modeling gigs that would put other much younger models to shame.

Maye Musk and her 5’8″ slender frame have been appearing all over the place for major brands. For example, the mother of three and grandmother of ten has walked for designers like Dolce & Gabbana and shared the spotlight with leading model Karlie Kloss in an ad for Swarovski. Musk is a new face for CoverGirl makeup and also for skin care giant Olay and appears in television commercials for both.

Musk can also be found these days in the pages of Vogue Germany, Australia, Britain and Korea.

The glamorous mature model is signed with the IMG company; that is an agency that also represents happening models like Gisele, Gigi Hadid, Ashley Graham, Lily Aldridge and Alessandria Ambrosio.

Maye Musk likes keeping busy and learning new things and has a background as a dietician. She went back to school and got her master’s degree in 1983.
