Designer Vera Wang celebrated her 71st birthday with photos of her jaw-dropping figure.

Vera, whose clothing has been worn by everyone from Ashley Graham to Kim Kardashian and former first daughter Barbara Bush, marked her birthday — and Pride Month — by posting three Instagram photos.

In them, she wore a black sports bra, green leggings and a pair of aviator sunglasses, her black hair cascading down her waist.

“PRIDE Workout,” she wrote, while showing off her multi-coloured manicure.

“Totally amazing, wow 29 forever,” one fan commented on the age-defying snap.

“So gorgeous. You do not know how to age woman,” another exclaimed.

Even as a former competitive figure skater, Vera has voiced her distaste for working out.

In May, Harper’s Bazaar ran a photo of the designer, who is famous for her wedding gowns, sitting on a treadmill wearing white stilettos.

Wang told the magazine that the image, “depicts my personal conflict between loving athleisure clothing but dreading the treadmill!”

The latest snap comes after she previously shocked fans with another photo of herself enjoying the sun in Miami and showing off her abs.

Vera, who escaped New York City during the coronavirus pandemic, shared multiple snaps of herself in the orange crop top and tiny white shorts.

"I just learned that Vera Wang is SEVENTY (70) YEARS OLD. This is how I’m [trying to] age," one person said.

When an Instagram fan asked Vera for the secret to her tight abs, she answered, “Work, sleep, a vodka cocktail, not much sun,” according to Insider.

Lately, the designer has been tweeting about important events — she honoured George Floyd, who died in police custody in May with the Twitter hashtag #RIPGeorgeFloyd and the message, “You changed the world. Peace. Justice. Respect.”

And she celebrated the June 5 birthday of Breonna Taylor, who was fatally shot by police in Kentucky.
