Martha Stewart might be the queen of thirst-trap photos at the age of 82 — nobody does them better than she does. Her latest snapshot harkens back to that original steamy image that started it all in July 2020 when she shared a glamorous image of herself in her East Hampton, New York pool — it was very old-school Hollywood. 

She cemented her status as a sex symbol earlier this year as one of Sports Illustrated Swimsuit‘s cover models. Stewart is here to knock ageism on its behind as she continues to shatter glass ceilings. Her latest seductive pose comes on her Instagram account with her most “mysterious” setting: Hotel Castello di Reschio in Italy. She was lit from behind in amber hues as she pursed her glossy lips and seductively looked at the camera, Stewart knows all of her best angles.

The lifestyle guru shared a bit more about her location in the caption, writing, “The #castellodireschio is a 13 century castle remade by a very creative couple into a special resort of extraordinary quality. The heated pool in a stone tower was the perfect place for a new selfie! Dark. Candle lit. Mysterious. Relaxing before a massage and ablutions prior to @brunellocucinelli_brand founders 70th birthday in Solomeo.” Of course, Stewart’s vacation is filled with luxury and fabulousness, just as we expected, and we appreciate how she leans into every delicious moment.

For anyone looking to be an icon like Stewart, she had some great advice after her dazzling Sports Illustrated Swimsuit shoot. “There shouldn’t be any limits. Set your limits higher than you think. Embrace the past but absolutely look towards the future and reimagine what you can do,” she explained to Today. “I don’t act my age and I don’t want to even think about my age.” We love how Stewart sparkles in every season of her life!
