As the saying goes, imitation is the highest form of flattery. And when it comes to Martha Stewart’s history-making Sports Illustrated Swimsuit cover, emulation has been served up by “Shark Tank” star Barbara Corcoran.
The self-proclaimed “queen of New York City real estate” showed the queen of domesticity what she’s working with in a revealing Instagram selfie.
“I can’t cook, but I sure can swim,” Corcoran, 74, captioned the photo, in which she wears a white swimsuit and orange cover-up, much like the ensemble Stewart dons for her Sports Illustrated cover. However, instead of posing in the tropical landscape of the Dominican Republic, the lush trees of Central Park serve as Corcoran’s backdrop.
“You’ve seen Martha Stewart…but have you seen me,” the “Shark Tank” star added on her Instagram Story, tagging the former Food Network superstar, who, at age 81, became the oldest person to ever cover the Swimsuit Issue.
Elon Musk’s mother, Maye Musk, who is now 75, set the previous mark last year.
Stewart is one of four stars to grace the 2023 covers of the magazine’s iconic annual edition. The others include actress Megan Fox, trans pop singer Kim Petras and model Brooks Nader, who won the SI Swim Search open casting call competition in 2019.
