Long before she was sharing sultry pool selfies and spending hours snowplowing her farm, Martha Stewart was a stockbroker who wore hot pants to work.
The lifestyle mogul worked on Wall Street as an institutional broker for seven years in the '60s and '70s.
"We were the real thing. You saw the movie 'Wall Street?' I lived it," the 79-year-old businesswoman told Harper's Bazaar's Jada Yuan in a profile published Tuesday.
Stewart recounted her time on the trading floor as the sole female employee at her company and drinking martinis at lunch. She also talked about her work attire during that era, which included hot pants. Stewart said that she had two velvet pairs, in peach and dark brown, which she wore with a sweater tucked in and either boots or high-heeled shoes, and accessorized with an alligator belt.Martha Stewart on the grounds of her home in Westport, Connecticut, in August 1976.

"I looked great in them," Stewart said.
Hot pants — short shorts, which Stewart described as showing "plenty of leg and a little bit of your butt" — were all the rage in the 1970s, but the style first became fashionable in the 1950s, when stars like Marilyn Monroe were pictured wearing them. And though hot pants have fallen in and out of fashion in the decades since, the style has popped up on runways in recent years, with Vogue publishing an article with the hottest hot pants to buy in 2016.A model photographed wearing black hot pants during the 2019 Paris Fashion Week.

Stewart's interest in fashion likely came from her modeling career, which began when she was 16. At one point, she signed with the popular agency Ford models and regularly booked TV commercials.
Stewart told Yuan that her time in modeling and finance taught her how to navigate the bad behavior of some men.
"You had to keep your cool and just do your thing, and brush them away," Stewart said. (In the same interview, she described herself "a modest girl" who "did not f--- around.")
Speaking about interactions she had during her time on Wall Street, Stewart mentioned men making advances in taxis and a broker who she said "locked women in his apartment for kinky reasons." Stewart said she adopted one woman's pet cat because the broker wouldn't let the woman go home to feed it.
Without mentioning anyone by name, Stewart said that she knows "almost every single one of the famous guys that has been accused and set aside" during the #MeToo movement. She said that while she believes some are guilty of the accusations brought forth against them, others have "awful personalities."
"I know those people very, very well, and you know the man just talks about sex during dinner," she said. "That doesn't mean anything to me."

I ended up in hospital after my husband gave me a vajacial – he accidentally put hot chilli powder down there
A WOMAN has revealed how a DIY vajacial left her in agonising pain after her husband accidentally put habanero chillies down there.
Amber had wanted to surprise husband Josh after reading about vajacials in a magazine, but after he walked in on her squatting over a boiling pot of water, he offered to assist.4Amber ended up in ER after husband Josh accidentally applied habanero pepper to her vaginaCredit: TLC
Appearing on TLC’s Sex Sent Me to ER, Josh explains how he began mixing the ingredients for the DIY lotion in a bowl.
After helping to apply the lotion, the couple admit that they got a bit “hot and heavy” until Amber began to experience a burning sensation.
“When someone makes you hot it’s normally a good thing but that was not this situation,” she explains.
The couple head to the ER, where doctors struggle to come up with a diagnosis for Amber’s pain.4Amber was left in agonising pain from the homemade lotion they madeCredit: TLC
She says: “My mind was seriously racing, all I wanted was the diagnosis.
“We just have really great sex and it would be really hard to live without that.”
Eventually Josh admits that perhaps he didn’t properly rinse out the bowl he used to mix the ingredients for the lotion in.
He confesses he had used the bowl to make chilli, which included habanero peppers as an ingredient.4Dr Pearl explains that capsicum causes burning on the skinCredit: TLC
Emergency physician, Dr Michelle Pearl explains, “Capsicum's a molecule that’s found in chilli peppers and that molecule binds to the sensory receptors on your skin or in your eyes.
“When you ingest it it causes a burning sensation in your mouth and if you eat too much of it, it can actually cause severe nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, really hot, painful bowel movements.
“It causes this really intense burning pain.”
The doctor explains to the couple that by trying to wash off the capsicum, Amber was just spreading it around further.4Amber is fully recovered after having a milk bathCredit: TLC
Josh says: “As soon as I came clean, the doctor had a diagnosis for us and a remedy for us, which oddly enough was not any kind of medicine.”
Amber adds: “Come to find out that the fatty part of milk works as a kind of detergent for the oils in pepper basically it just washes it all away.
“They give me a full blown milk bath. I’m so happy, a DIY remedy for a DIY project that goes awry, turns out milk really does do a body good.”
After relieving Amber of her pain, the doctor explains that the vagina is a self-cleaning organ there’s no reason to steam clean it and vajacials can not provide any sort of rejuvenation.Most read in FabulousLive BlogSUIT YOURSELFMeghan's Suits co-star calls Royals ‘toxic’ amid Oprah interview fall-outMYSTIC MEGMarch 6: Your own views are the ones that count most to take you forwardARCH ANGELMeghan's pal posts then deletes previously unseen photo of toddler ArchieHIDDEN HISTORYMystery 800-year-old secret tunnels hidden for centuries found in gardenTRUTH BE TOLDLawyer shares easy way to tell if someone’s lying and it works EVERY timeWHO'S WATCHING?New iPhone feature reveals if someone is STALKING your exact movements I found out my wife was cheating after a doctor found an old condom stuck inside her
