Martha Stewart knows how to beat the summer heat. On Tuesday, the 78-year-old took to Instagram to share a sultry snap from the pool.

The photo shows the DIY expert spending some time in the sun taking a dip in the water. While giving a subtle pout at the camera, Stewart shows off her glamorous eye shadow and lipstick.


In the caption, Stewart shares details about the pool and when it was built. “My pool in East Hampton is the place to be on a 89 degree day! When I built the pool thirty years ago it was designed to be as chlorine free as possible, with a natural concrete finish-no paint- and it fit in a long narrow space between the house and the property line,” she writes.

The pool not only pleases the eye, but also serves as an excellent spot for exercise. “I made it extra deep for diving and with no protruding steps so we could really race the length without worrying about obstacles,” Stewart continued. “After all these years, It is a fun place to swim!!!”

After posting the photo on social media, thousands of fans chimed in complimenting the lifestyle guru on the look. “How are you not aging?!” one user wrote. “What a BABE, work it Martha,” another commented, “You have some nerve lookin this HOT at 78 years young 🔥🔥🔥 now lemme get that skin care routine!”

Several fans also called the post a “thirst trap.” “Martha with the thirst trap Tuesday,” a fan said. Another user added, “Martha thirst trapping?! 😍 My queen! ❤️”


Shortly after posting the selfie, Martha Stewart treated fans to an inside look at her stunning property. She posted a series of pics showing the exterior of the house and the beautiful landscaping.

“Many of you asked to see the pool and gardens out East. Here are some random shots of a beautiful old property I have gardened here for thirty years It’s nice to see the trees matured and the plants settle in,” she writes.
