The 81-year-old lifestyle guru looked like royalty in a crystal-covered Jenny Packham gown at the soirée, which honored her and fellow cover stars Megan Fox, Kim Petras and Brooks Nader. The design — from the label favored by Princess Kate — featured sparkly silver and gold embellishments throughout, flared sleeves and rouching at the bodice. 

Stewart teamed the number with soft glam that included rosy cheeks, warm eyeshadow and a glossy lip. 

Ahead of the big event, the Martha Rules author shared some getting ready snaps via Instagram. “Wearing @jennypackham gold, @prada shoes,” Stewart captioned the social media post, sharing the fashion credits. She then revealed that her bouncy bob was brought to life by the John Barrett Hair Salon.  

The New Jersey native noted that her ensemble was finalized by earrings she “borrowed from my daughter, Alexis. In a follow-up post, Stewart was photographed clasping her earrings. “Putting on the bling!!!!!!!” she wrote. 

The Thursday celebration comes after Stewart debunked rumors that she’s had plastic surgery following her SI Swimsuit cover debut.

“Well, it’s not true,” she told Variety in an interview published on Wednesday, May 17. “I’ve had absolutely no plastic surgery whatsoever. I have very healthy, good hair. I drink green juice every day. I take my vitamins. I eat very healthfully. I have very good skin doctors. I’m very careful in the sun. I wear hats and I wear sunblock every single day.”

As for how she prepared for the big shoot, Stewart revealed that she “upped her Pilates to three times a week” and stopped drinking alcohol. She continued: “I had my regular facials but maybe more frequently and I also got a spray tan … I’m not a hairy person, but I got a complete body wax.”
