Vera Wang has left her fans shocked, yet again, after showing off her youthful appearance.

The renowned fashion designer turned heads as she stepped out onto the red carpet at Thursday night's DKMS Gala at Cipriani Wall Street in New York City.

The star, who turned 74 in June, flaunted her midriff in a stunning black satin bralette top and a matching maxi skirt. While the top was sleeveless, Wang paired the look with some thick leather gloves and a statement flower near her shoulder.

Her hair was pulled to the side with some volume up top and as for her makeup, the icon decided to keep it simple, with a soft base and some thick eyeliner on her lids. Have a look at the stunning outfit below:

DKMS is an acronym for the Deutsche Knochenmarkspenderdatei, which is a German non-profit charity organization that prides itself on helping to fight against blood cancer by trying to find and match stem cell donors with patients.

Wang strutted her stuff on the red carpet alongside other notable stars who were there to support the great cause including Priyanka Chopra Jonas, Niki Taylor, and Marc Jacobs.

After sharing snaps from the event on Instagram, many of her 880,000 followers flooded Wang's comments section with praise, with one person writing: "Love the shoulder piece, looking fabulous as always Vera."

Others branded Vera "stunning", "ageless", and "beautiful".

During the event, Wang spoke to DailyMail.com about aging, revealing she doesn't feel she is "preoccupied" by her looks.

However, she did reveal her one fear about aging, saying: "I think what happens sometimes as you age... I'm more frightened about physical disabilities... not all this."

"I'm not totally preoccupied with how I look," the designer continued. "I love my work, and I'm very passionate about my work, my friends, my daughters... I mean, I have a very full life."

Speaking to the Observer about the importance of the event, Wang said: "I remember my first DKMS event. I think it was in a much smaller venue, and it’s gotten larger, larger and larger every year.

She continued: "I’ve been awarded here at least twice already, but it’s hard to remember the first one and where it was. I feel honored to be here."

Wang previously opened up to PEOPLE, stating that the secret to her youthful glow is a confident attitude as well as a sip of vodka here and there.

"I guess it's just that people have an idea of what 70 looks like today," she said. "I have so many friends that are 65 to 70 that look fabulous. But I have to say that hopefully, it's a good thing. I hope it makes women feel more comfortable with themselves or are confident, or there are many definitions of what a woman can be."

She continued, telling her fans that she loves a cocktail.

"And, one of the things I am known to like to do is have a vodka cocktail. There's no question about that, I do. I have a vodka at some point after five or six o'clock, maybe towards seven," she continued before adding: "And I have to say, sleep, staying out of the sun without sunblock, and good lighting is everything too!"
