Vera Wang is 70 years old

Recently, the iconic fashion designer jumped on Instagram to share some shots of herself in isolation. The gorgeous designer showed off her long legs and toned abs. However, fans were really tripped up when they remembered Wang’s age.

The New York-born designer was born on June 27, 1949, which means she will be turning 71 years old this year. One fan was absolutely floored saying, “THIS B*TCH VERA WANG IS 70?!?!” Another added, “SHE WAS BORN IN 1949 I–” Another person added, }Homegirl just went and unsubscribed from aging. ” Yet another asked, “wtf is she drinking, unicorn blood?! Unreal.”

Honestly, no one can get over it, but we’d love Ms. Wang to drop her skincare and nutrition regime immediately.

Inside Vera Wang’s workout routine

Wang hasn’t been wasting any time in quarantine. Her recent photos have shown her stunting in athleisure wear. She captioned one of her photos saying, “Depicts my personal conflict between loving athleisure clothing but dreading the treadmill!” In 2016, Wang spoke about not being a huge fan of the exercise. “I’m not a huge exercise person, but I love to play golf at Liberty National, in Jersey City, N. J., or at Atlantic Golf Club in the Hamptons if I happen to be out there,” she told InStyle. “I’m terrible but enthusiastic.”

The designer is currently quarantining in Miami with her “workday fashion family. ” “All of them are extremely fit, which pushed me to ‘work out’ most days,” she told Harper’s Bazaar. “[My quarantine group] being a hardcore fashion group, and me having my lifelong obsession with leggings, I had the opportunity to actually ‘play’ with clothes, something even a fashion designer rarely has the luxury of doing.”
