Vera Wang, 73, has shared how she manages to stay looking so young.

The iconic fashion designer is famed for her beautiful creations – which have been worn by the likes of Kim Kardashian, Ariana Grande and Victoria Beckham.

Wang, who was at one point the youngest editor of Vogue, has now revealed the secret to her youthful looks.

“I’ve been asked what are my secrets. I’ve got to be really honest, one of them is sleep,” she explains. 

“I value having a vodka cocktail at the end of the day because it helps me transition from a very intense work schedule to a bit of private life.”

Wang also credits her work in fashion to her youthful looks, saying: “I’ve been in fashion since I was 19 years old. Not in front of the camera, behind it.

“I never thought about youth, probably because I work with the most beautiful women in the world on a daily basis.

“And because of that I more envision them as my muses, and maybe it’s a way of dealing with ageing that is productive.

“So I always said that vodka cocktail, a lot of sleep, but work, work is the magic elixir.”

This is not the first time Wang has spoken about her healthy lifestyle.

The designer has opened up about her workout routine in an interview with Harper’s Bazaar US. 

She tells the publication: “I usually lift weights, not much – two pounds and three pounds. It takes me a total of five minutes.”

The famous fashion designer has also admitted that she enjoys playing golf.

While speaking to InStyle, she says: “I’m not a huge exercise person, but I love to play golf at Liberty National, in Jersey City, NJ or at Atlantic Golf Club in the Hamptons if I happen to be out there.

“I’m terrible but enthusiastic.”

When it comes to food, Wang has stated that she ‘never misses a meal’, as she has to feed her brain.

In the same interview with Harpers Bazaar US, she explains: “I go through phases with what I eat for lunch.

“I like sashimi with brown rice and vegetables, Chinese steamed broccoli with chicken and rice, or the artichoke salad or fish from Sant Ambroeus.

“At one point I was eating a slice of Ray’s pizza every day, and I never gained a pound on it. It’s not a bad thing if you squeeze out that excess oil. It’s so filling.

“I only drink water – I stopped drinking Diet Coke six years ago. That was the hardest thing I ever gave up.”
