Vera Wang has once again left her fans aghast as it appears she refuses to age like the rest of humanity.

The 73-year-old fashion icon walked the red carpet at Thursday night's DKMS Gala 2022, which took place at Cipriani Wall Street in New York City.

According to the DKMS website, the event was held in honor of the charity's fight against blood cancer and blood disorders.

"It will be an inspirational evening, celebrating the DKMS mission and our global reach, which has granted over 100,000 second chances at life to patients in over 57 countries," the event description read.

Stars Jaime King, Marc Jacobs, and Charly Sturm also appeared at the event. Aloe Blacc also performed for those in attendance.

However, over on Instagram, it was Wang's fans who were gushing over the legendary designer's youthful appearance. The DKMS supporter posed for photos as she wowed in a red and white gown. She accessorized the look with a pair of black block sunglasses.

Sharing several pictures from the evening with her 807,000 Instagram followers, Wang could be seen posing next to DKMS chairman Katharina Harf. Wang captioned the post: "To my dear friend Katharina, you are truly a force to be reckoned with. Thank you for all you have done to try and eradicate blood cancer."

In another post, Wang stood alongside beauty business innovator Sue Nabi.

And finally, a third post shows the 73-year-old standing alongside beauty mogul Stefano Curti.

"DKMS NIGHT! Always an amazing event that supports such incredible research," Wang added.

And it wasn't long before fans flooded Wang's comments section with praise, with one person writing, "Looking fabulous" and another commenting, "Absolutely Stunning Vera".

The seemingly ageless Wang turned 73 on June 27.

Writing on a previous Instagram post, Wang blessed us with her youthful secrets after a fan asked what her secret was to looking younger than her age, to which she replied: "Work, sleep, a vodka cocktail, not much sun."

And although the seemingly throwaway comment may have been considered a joke at the time, Wang as doubled-down on her claims.

In an interview with the BBC earlier this year, Wang was once again asked about her secrets to looking younger than her years, to which she replied: "I’ve got to be really honest, one of them is sleep.

"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."

Sleep and vodka... No wonder I looked by best as a teenager.
