Martha Stewart Goes Viral with Youthful No-Filter Selfie

Martha Stewart, the queen of the thirst trap and the original influencer, is back again with an internet-breaking selfie.

On Sunday, the lifestyle icon documented her trip to the hair salon by sharing a photo of herself looking fresh and youthful on her Instagram.

"Lying in the shampoo area of @FredericFekkai the light was perfect for a new selfie," Stewart, 81, wrote alongside a sultry snap. "Absolutely no re-imaging!!! Skin looking good after a mostly dry January and pilates @bedfordpilates every other day. By re-imaging, I meant no filtering my selfie!"

The photo soon went viral, and while many praised her smooth complexion, radiance and confidence, others, of course, shared their doubts and insisted she admit to plastic surgery.

"You look amazing but be honest about your facial regimen. Using Botox, fillers, laser treatments, etc. to help enhance your beauty it’s not just diet, exercise and facials," one person wrote.

"No Photoshop, just hundreds of thousands spent for plastic surgery, Botox, Restylane, fillers, and more. I would have a lot more respect for this post if you think your plastic surgeon because he or she did a great job, and you are lucky enough to be able to afford all of this," another commented.

But Stewart did not stay silent amid the criticism, and instead responded with three more no-filter selfies featuring her famous sexy pout—plus a glimpse into her skincare and wellness routine.

"These are the other three selfies I took. My expression was better in the first one but my skin looks great in all of them. Un filtered. No face lift," Stewart wrote in her post caption. "Great derms my whole life. Currently dr Daniel Belkin and dr Dhaval Bhanusali great diet. Great exercise and did I mention amazing facials @mariobadescu for the last forty years!"

Facialist Mario Badescu and makeup artist Kristofer Buckle soon came to her defense, as did friends and fans. "Thank you Martha! 💚 It is an honor to take care of your skin!" Badescu commented. "Don’t defend your beauty,,, every time I have done your makeup I have been impressed by your beautiful skin. ❤️," Buckle wrote.
