Martha Stewart has legs and she knows how to use them. The 78-year-old lifestyle guru wore a jaw-dropping black mini dress to the 2020 Vanity Fair Oscars party, and fans couldn’t believe how young it made her look.
For the star-studded Hollywood party, Martha rocked a surprisingly short sparkly Giambattista Valli sheath with sheer sleeves and tulle at the hem. The domestic diva’s 1960s-inspired dress was accessorized with golden pearl necklaces — made by Martha herself — and tan Manolo Blahnik high-heeled sandals, according to captions on her social media posts from the evening. She wore her shoulder-length hair down and parted on the side, and her makeup featured a smokey eye, a natural lip color, and a shimmery highlight.
On Instagram, Martha posted photos from the night, several of which showed off her super-toned legs in the eye-popping outfit. Martha posed with Shark Tank guru Robert Herjavec and his wife, Dancing with the Stars alum Kym Johnson-Herjavec, at the high-profile celebrity party. She also revealed that her date for the night was Douglas Friedman as she posed for a sassy snap with her handsome escort in an elevator.

In comments to Martha’s Instagram posts, fans posted hearts and fire emoji as they marveled over how it appears that she never ages.
“Drinking from the fountain of youth,” one fan quipped.
“Legs for days,” another chimed in.
“Smokinggggg,” a third follower said of Martha’s hot mini.
“Those legs aren’t just for collecting hen eggs! Whoa!” another admirer wrote of Martha’s leggy look.
Of course, fans know that Martha knows how to rock an LBD. In December, she went glam with a blond party look as she got ready for the holiday season and future awards show looks. Last month, the TV star and author turned heads at the Golden Globes after-party in a stunning black dress.
On Instagram, Martha shared the details of her Golden Globes ensemble, which included a Hermes black crepe dress and matching organza coat by Ralph Rucci’s RR331. She also gave her followers the secret to her glowing legs. The blond beauty revealed she used Dior shimmer makeup instead of stockings.
“And it worked!” she wrote.
It’s no surprise that Martha is always perfectly styled, as the future media star even did some modeling when she was in college. Decades later — and less than two years before her 80th birthday — she still looks years younger than her age — she still has great legs.
