'Who would believe at 68 you’d be getting better jobs?': meet Maye Musk, the fabulous model enjoying a 'greynaissance'
Paris Fashion Week has just come to an end, but its break-out star wasn’t a teenage model or edgy young designer. Instead, it was Maye Musk, the 68-year-old fashion industry veteran, who proved that age is no barrier to impeccable style. Thanks to a new modelling contract with Gisele’s model agency IMG, Musk found herself sitting on the front row for the first time and being accosted by street-style photographers eager to capture her avant-garde look.

“It was an amazing week,” she says over the phone from her home in Los Angeles, where she has been kept busy since her return. Hours after landing, she was in jeans and trainers planting vegetables at one of the schools that benefits from The Kitchen Community, a charity founded by one of her sons.

Ah, yes – her sons. While Musk has found international fashion fame of late, she’s already known as the mother of Elon Musk, the billionaire inventor who recently announced his ambition to put people on Mars.

Born in Canada in 1948 but raised in South Africa, Musk – who began modelling at 15 – married her high-school sweetheart Errol and trained as a dietician. The couple had three children: Elon, his brother Kimbal (the entrepreneur targeting America’s reliance on fast food) and a daughter, Tosca, a film producer and director. But when they divorced in 1979, their sons opted to live with their father, and Musk found herself as a single mother, struggling to make ends meet.
