Martha Stewart Celebrated Turning 81 Exactly How We Expected — Drinking Too Much Chardonnay
Martha Stewart is living her best life, and to celebrate her 81st birthday, she did exactly what only Martha could successfully do: Post a sultry, stunning selfie on her Instagram. In the photo she appears to be fully reclined and she’s pursing her lips, which is a typical pose for the innovative host and chef.
In the caption for the now-viral photo, Stewart explained that she had a delicious lunch prior to a big birthday dinner and that, along with her meal, she had just had a little too much of her recently released 19 Crimes Chardonnay.
This isn’t the first time that the star has posted a selfie that attracted tons of attention. In 2020, she said that she learned what a “thirst trap” was after posting a picture she took by the pool. At first, she said she wasn’t intending to take a selfie, but decided to go for it when she accidentally turned her phone camera on herself.
After seeing the photo, she told PEOPLE, “It looked so good, so I posted it. I didn’t know what a ‘thirst trap’ was, but now I do. Now I’m looking for the next thirst trap. I love doing those promiscuous, provocative things, because it’s just fun.” And that’s exactly what she’s been doing.
