Vera Turned Heads At The BAFTA

On Sunday, the 73-year-old dazzled on the BAFTA red carpet in a silk dress and crop top.

The designer, famous for her whimsical wedding dresses, is a septuagenarian, which shocked Twitter users.

Vera Knows Her Angles

She was a master at posing and angles, and photographers captured her in her best light, beaming with confidence and joy.

Accessorizing With Bold Sunglasses

The American fashionista completed her chic look with a pair of oversized black sunglasses, giving the impression that she had just stepped off the runway at one of her shows.

Keeping It Casual Yet Chic

For warmth in the chilly British February, Wang wore a pretty pearl necklace and threw a cream coat over her shoulders.

She opted for natural makeup with pink lips and kept her brunette hair sleek and straight.

She Took The Internet By Storm

It would be an understatement to say that the internet was astounded by Wang's ageless beauty after seeing pictures of her on the BAFTAS carpet.

73 Never Looked So Good

One shocked user wrote alongside images of Wang at the awards show,

"Just a reminder to everyone that Vera Wang is 73 YEARS OLD."


“Vera Wang seems immortal with her sultry youthful look at BAFTAs! If I could look half of what she looks likes, it’d be something!”

Another fan gushed.

73 And Still Hot!

Wang is a member of the elite group of public figures who seem to be ageless. That makes sense because how else could she be 73 and still look so hot? Vera needs to reveal all of her secrets!

Fans Praise Her Age-Defying Abilities From Time To Time

Wang has previously been praised for "age-defying" abilities. Fans clamor for her everlasting elixir after seeing the numerous photos on her Instagram of her lounging by a pool and displaying her toned body.

Her Glow Secret

According to her, the secret to Wang's wrinkle-free glow is "work, sleep, a vodka cocktail, not much sun."

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

Wang said to the BBC in 2020. She also added that she is "shocked" by the attention paid to her appearance.

Her Favorite Snack

The designer has demonstrated that some celebrities are just like us, unlike others in the spotlight who promote strict diets and strenuous exercise routines; she has shared her favorite processed snacks, such as cheese puffs, Cheez-Its, and Cheetos.

A Fan Of Athleisure Clothing

In 2020, she shared a photo of herself relaxing in heels on a treadmill and captioned it as her

“personal conflict between loving athleisure clothing but dreading the treadmill.”

A Timeless Beauty

In November, Wang stunned onlookers as she walked down the CFDA Fashion Awards red carpet in teeny hot pants and thigh-high heels.

The designer's admirers praised her for looking "better and better" and said she has "ageless, timeless beauty."

Ushering Her 73rd In Style

Also, for her 73rd birthday, the designer left us all in shock with her sultry pink outfit, which we clearly haven't seen until now.

Wang wore a blush-colored gown with a dramatic train and an open front to better display her matching short shorts. Wang even had pink highlights added to her long, dark hair for the event.

A Pink Affair

The birthday girl wore pink stone-studded jewelry, including rings, necklaces, a tiara, and tall silver platform heels. The designer's cake was decorated with pink roses and silver fondant, and the initials on top matched her champagne bottle and her clothing.

The Queen Of Fashion

Vera keeps letting us know she's the queen of the fashion industry at every chance she gets and there's no denying that the 73-year-old can make everything look good.

The Irony Behind Starting The Brand

Women worldwide lust after the expensive wedding gowns designed by Vera Wang, who has dressed everyone from the Kardashians to Michelle Obama.

Even so, Wang is still astonished by her success and the success of her career as a fashion designer.

“If anyone had said, [I’d be] the girl who didn’t get married until she was 40 [and] would build a business based on wedding gowns, I would have laughed,” Wang, tells CNBC Make It

She Was Once An Editor At Vogue

Before losing out to Anna Wintour for the position of editor-in-chief, Wang worked at Vogue for 17 years.

Then she got married. Wang struggled to find a wedding dress she liked when she decided to marry computer executive Arthur Becker just before turning 40 (they later got divorced).

Her father saw a business opportunity in her problem. Wang was hesitant, though.

Her Father's Support Helped Birth The Vera Wang Brand

“I thought maybe it’s just too late for me,” she says. However, her father kept encouraging her, even giving her seed money to open her flagship salon at the Carlyle Hotel in New York City in 1990.
