Martha Stewart hit 1 million followers on Instagram and thanked her fans, friends, and followers for their support on the social media platform. In the update, the lifestyle doyenne was in an outdoor setting, looking lovely in a portrait taken by friends Douglas Friedman and Kevin Sharkey as she celebrated her birthday.
Martha stood on the terrace of her bedroom at her estate in Bedford, New York, an upscale area of Westchester County. The area was lush with greenery, with plants that reached all the way up to her balcony. The stunning home has been Martha’s residence for the past 20 years. Martha resides in the 1925 farmhouse called the Winter House, as seen in the photo, one of several residences on the 153-acre property.
Looking lovely in white pants and a dolman-sleeved blue blouse with a squared-off collar, Martha stood on the outdoor area of her home as the sunlight appeared to rise behind her. Her blond hair appeared to be cut to shoulder-length and showed off the former fashion model’s high cheekbones and long neck. Beyond Martha is a large treeline that frames the expansive homestead.
In a caption to the pic, Martha appeared to be grateful to have become such a popular celebrity on the social media sharing site and was thrilled to reach such a fabulous milestone marker as she celebrated being 79 years old.
