When thinking about Vera Wang, many want to know how to get their hands on one of her gorgeous wedding gowns.

But, what some astounded fans are really wanting to know is how the designer - who turned 73 this year - still looks so youthful.

On an Instagram post celebrating Wang’s birthday, many admirers commented on how good she looked for 73.

One Instagram user commented: “73 must be the new 33 because you are ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS", with another fan gushing: "Gosh share your secret please you look like [you're] 30."

Speaking on the subject of age earlier this year, Wang revealed some of the secrets to her youthful looks.

The fashion icon told BBC’s 100 Women one of her tricks was “sleep” and a “vodka cocktail at the end of the day” because it helps her to transition from work mode into her private life.

I don’t know about you, but a vodka cocktail and a nap after a long day to stay young sounds excellent.

Wang continued to explain the impact of her work on her appearance: “I have 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 aging that is productive.”

So, the answer - something you may not want to hear- is work, the businesswoman admitted: “Work is the magic elixir.”

The designer hasn’t always been in the fashion world though. She devoted 16 years of her life to be a serious athlete, trying to qualify for the Olympics as a figure skater, she told the BBC.

Because of this, Wang recognizes the importance of exercising to stay fit and to keep her body looking youthful.

In an article with Harpers Bazaar where she listed her daily routine, Wang said: “I usually lift weights, not much- two pounds and three pounds. It takes me a total of five minutes. I’ve also begun trying to meditate, which is the hardest thing I’ve ever learned.”

Another element to consider when looking after your body is your diet. The fashion icon also appreciates the importance of eating well.

She told Harpers Bazaar: “I never miss a meal; I have to feed my brain.

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

Wang also sacrificed Diet Coke, saying it was the “hardest thing I ever gave up” choosing to now drink only water.

Despite this, the businesswoman is extremely laid back when it comes to her lifestyle, and she knows it is okay to treat herself occasionally.

Whatever it is that she is doing, Vera Wang certainly looks incredible for her age and we want whatever it is in her water that is keeping her so youthful!
