Fashion designer Vera Wang has confirmed that, despite her youthful appearance, she is actually 70 years old.

Though the former Vogue editor's Wikipedia page states she was born on 27 June 1949, many couldn't believe that she was actually into her eighth decade. And it's not hard to see why.

But the mum-of-two took to Twitter last week and informed fans that, yes, she really is 70.

Sharing a tweet about her age from a disbelieving fan, Vera wrote: "Fact Check: Truth."

Following the post, fans piled into the comments to share their shock at the revelation.

One person wrote: "I showed my boyfriend the first pic and asked him how she looked. His answer was 14."

A second put: "Okay ma'am but your legs are 24. Please explain."

A third said: "Shawty is 70 and literally looks like she's in her 20s or 30s and that's magical."

While another added: "There is no aging here, graceful or otherwise. She really does need to drop those secrets."

And the shockwaves were also felt on her Instagram feed were plenty more followers piled in because they just couldn't believe how old she was.

One wrote: "70 WHERE??? More like 70 months."

With another asked: "So what's the routine so I can look like this at 70?"

Away from the argument over her date of birth, Vera has been doing her bit during lockdown.

Last month, the fashion giant announced her firm was using their resources to help manufacture non-surgical face mask during the coronavirus pandemic.

Praising her staff for putting in the work on the project, Vera wrote: "We want to thank our in-house team of talented sewers, selflessly working from home to provide non-surgical face masks in support healthcare workers on the frontline. #StayHome."
