Martha Stewart. You all know her, of course. She was always the perpetually smiling, endlessly creative star of the 1980s and 1990s. Men and women alike seemed to like her – – she was pretty, successful, seemed friendly, and always had new things to teach and show. Basically a throwback to the perfect wife of the 1950s without anyone admitting as much. And she’s still a fixture on the cultural scene to this day.
