About a month ago, designer Vera Wang sent the world into a frenzy when it was revealed she is 70 years old. The fashion designer, who has been named an inspiring woman in fashion by this site for her tremendous work in the business, added insult to injury and celebrated her 71st birthday on Saturday. See, when people saw her Instagram posts, they couldn’t believe Wang is truly 70. To be honest, I am still struggling with accepting it, considering how terrific she looks, yet she (and Wikipedia) insists it’s true. And if that wasn’t enough, wait till you see Wang’s birthday outfit.
Over the weekend, the famous fashion designer shared a series of photos on her Instagram to celebrate the occasion. In the snaps, Wang wore athleisure clothing – an Adidas sports bra, teal-colored Balenciaga leggings with a black waistband, and a pair of Vera x Kohls sunglasses, showing off her toned physique and rainbow-colored nails in honor of Pride. Wang also shared a few snaps of her birthday cakes, one of which was covered with photos of the stunning designer.
Several of the star’s 2.7m Instagram followers took to the comments section of Wang’s photos to comment on how youthful she looks aged 71. One follower commented: “Simply FABULOUS!!!! Thank you for making women feel and look great! At all ages!!” Another commented: “You’re eternally youthful and attractive! How do you do that?” So, how does she do that? “Work, sleep, a vodka cocktail, and not much sun,” Wang replied to one fan who asked how she did it.
Wang shared another post from her birthday, showing off another great look. The photo showed the designer with a bottle of wine and three huge, red, furry bears. Wang matched her outfit to that of her furry friends, wearing red Adidas tights, a red mask, a raincoat, and insane stilettos. We would like to wish Wang a happy belated birthday! We also want to wish ourselves to look like her when we’re in our seventies.
