20 Gorgeous Vintage Photos of a Young Martha Stewart From Her Modeling Career in the 1960s

Before she was the queen of American home life, Martha Stewart was a model. Stewart began modeling at age 15, and continued when she was a student at Barnard College as a way to supplement her income.


Her clients included everyone from Unilever to Chanel. She also appeared in TV commercials for companies like Tareyton Cigarettes, Breck, Lifebuoy Soap and Clairol, just to name a few.

In a PBS documentary Makers: Women Who Make America, Martha discusses her modeling career, which included some gigs with Chanel. “I got enough modeling jobs at $50/hour — which was a lot of money at that time.”
