Vera Wang, 74, ‘aging backwards’ in new poolside pics

Vera Wang wished the world a “happy summer” as she shared pictures of herself lounging by the side of a pool, and the internet could not believe her age!

The legendary fashion designer, who will celebrate 75 years around the sun next month, shared a series of pictures on Instagram that had fans asking what her secret age-defying potion was.

“My SLIM AARONS moment …Happy Summer !!!” she wrote in the caption of her Instagram carousel.

In the comments section of the post, one fan exclaimed: “U r aging backward sis!”

“You can’t be 70,” remarked another, while someone else quipped: “HOW is it possible you look like this. I need to put down the slice of pizza immediately.”


“Time bows down to you and stops moving,” another fan added.

Recently, the luxury bridal-wear icon spoke about how she isn’t going to let the greys show in her hair anytime soon, telling actress Julia Louis-Dreyfus on her Wiser Than Me with Julia Louis-Dreyfus podcast: “I dye my hair, I’m [about to be] 75 years old.”

“I would look like a bad skunk,” she added, as per People.

The 74-year-old has designed luxury wedding gowns for celebrities like Victoria Beckham, Kim Kardashian, Selena Gomez, and others. The fashion industry pioneer, who has created wedding gowns for these stars, says she wants to see her two daughters (Cecilia, 33, and Josephine, 30) get married.

“I’m hoping I get the wedding before I die, both weddings. I certainly hope I’m alive and well and can do it,” she said on the podcast.

In the past, Vera revealed that she never tried to maintain her youth “in a fanatical, obsessive way.”

“I’ve been in fashion since I was 19 years old. Not in front of the camera, behind it,” she said in a 2022 interview for BBC 100 Women. “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 aging that is productive.”

The luxury wedding gown designer will be celebrating her 75th birthday on June 27 this year. During the interview, she shared some personal secrets, stating that “work” is part of her “magic elixir” for her ageless looks.

“I always said that: vodka cocktail, a lot of sleep, [and] work – work is the magic elixir,” she said, also revealing that she avoids spending time outdoors in the sun while speaking to Elle last year.

“I’m very flattered that people think I’ve aged well, but it was never my goal. I drink vodka, I sleep, I avoid the sun. But I like to work. I don’t want to be pigeonholed,” she said.

As she approaches her 75th birthday, the mother of two revealed that her celebration plans will definitely include dessert because “we’re cake people, as you can tell,” she told People in April.

“Birthday plans are up in the air. I mean 75 is a lot of pressure,” she told the outlet.
