    Evolution of Style

    Over the years, Martha Stewart has successfully reinvented herself countless times. Here’s a look back at the evolution of Stewart’s styling from her early days modeling in ’60s, Mad Men-era Manhattan, to her American Gothic life at a farmhouse in Connecticut, to the heady go-go days of the ’80s and ’90s, to her post-prison comeback—and everything in between.
