Fashion designer Vera Wang sent social media into a frenzy with her ageless looks after sharing a series of stunning photos of herself showing off her abs in a sports bra – prompting dozens of people to remark on the 70 year old’s age-defying appearance.
In the photos, which were shot at her home in Miami, where Vera is currently quarantining, the bridal brand founder can be seen posing up a storm in a bright orange sports bra and tiny denim shorts.
But it wasn’t her ensemble that sparked feverish excitement online – but rather her incredibly youthful appearance, with one Twitter user asking whether Vera has been ‘drinking unicorn blood’.
