Vera Wang’s fans are convinced the 74-year-old is ‘aging backward’ after seeing her latest swimsuit snaps. 

The fashion designer is one of the biggest names in the industry, having styled celebrities including Ariana Grande and Gwen Stefani.

At age 23, she started her career as one of the youngest fashion editors at Vogue. By the age of 40, Wang had opened a bridal shop and debuted her collection.

The designer now has a self-made net worth of $500 million, according to Forbes.

Throughout Wang’s many successes, her stunning looks have remained a constant – and now she’s revealed how she maintains her youthful appearance.

Fans can’t quite believe Wang’s age, with many wondering what her secrets are to looking this good at 74.

On X, formerly known as Twitter, one fan writes: “All I know is that I want to look as beautiful as Vera Wang in my 70s. That woman does not age.”

Another adds: “If y’all wanna gush over 30-year-old celebrities ‘looking 19’ why don’t we talk about how Vera Wang is in her 70s AND LOOKS THIS AMAZING.”

A third person asks: “Wtf is she drinking, unicorn blood?! Unreal.”

“You are aging backward sis!” comments somebody else.

Wang isn’t afraid to show off her age-defying style.

For this year’s Met Gala theme, Sleeping Beauties: Reawakening Fashion, the designer wowed on the carpet wearing a custom design.

And with her latest swimsuit photo, Wang is making headlines once again.

In a new Instagram upload, the bridal designer stuns in a poolside snap in the Hamptons, wearing a white square-neck-one-piece with spaghetti straps.

Not shy about accessorizing the swimsuit, Wang pairs it up with statement earrings, a bracelet, and jeweled sandals.

It’s led fans to ask one big question… how does she look so good at 74?

How Wang kept herself looking so young was a mystery, until she kindly revealed all for the fans.

Her secrets: McDonald’s, Dunkin’ Donuts, and vodka.

In a chat with Page Six, the fashion designer admitted ordering from McDonald’s a lot, saying: “I order it every day, like two weeks on it, and then I’ll change.”

Her go-to order from Dunkin’ Donuts is: “A jelly donut, but it’s cream inside, vanilla cream. I like the pink with sprinkles, too.”

Wang previously went viral for posing in a sports bra showing off her abs and when fans asked her how she managed to stay looking so fit, she responded: “Work, sleep, a vodka cocktail, not much sun…”

These aren’t the only anti-aging secrets the designer has shared.

In an interview with People, she said that work is important: “Nobody believes me when I say it, but working keeps you young. It keeps your mind young, and your spirit up, and your relevance up, which I think affects your body.”

She added: “And I have to say, sleep, staying out of the sun without sunblock, and good lighting is everything too!”
