A couple of weeks ago, photos of Vera Wang went viral with everyone questioning just how old she is.
Well now she's turned 71 and posed in a sports bra to celebrate and she looks not a day over 21.
Keep scrolling to check out the pics.
Vera Wang is an icon.Born in New York City of Chinese origin, Wang is one of the biggest names in the fashion world.
She's a household name.And while Wang has been revolutionizing fashion for decades now, there's one thing she is perhaps known for most.
Bridal Wear.Wang is arguably the most prominent designer of bridal wear in all of the United States - now isn't that something!
It's complete luxury.According to her own website, Vera Wang is 'the highest end of the luxury market'.
Her clients are all A-Listers.Such as Chelsea Clinton, Ivanka Trump, Campbell Brown, Alicia Keys, Mariah Carey, Victoria Beckham, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Avril Lavigne, Hilary Duff, Khloe Kardashian, and Kim Kardashian.
Her evening wear has been worn by many others too.Including none other than Michelle Obama.
But she wasn't always a designer.Immediately upon graduation from college she was hired as editor for Vogue.
And then she worked at Ralph Lauren.Where she worked for two years before resigning to become an independent designer herself.
But the biggest question is.
Just how old is Vera Wang? That's the question we all want to know the answer to.

Vera worked at Vogue for 17 years, Ralph Lauren for two years, and that was before she started the Vera Wang brand. So she can't be 20-something, or even 40-something.
