LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Vera Wang has disclosed the secrets behind her evergreen youth, and some of them truly come as a surprise.

The 74-year-old fashion designer opened up about her views on aging in an interview with Page Six Style on October 19 while in attendance at the DKMS Gala in New York City.

Vera Wang reveals her favorite fast food

Wang mentioned that one fast-food chain regularly makes the cut when choosing meals. She said, “I do eat McDonald’s, absolutely. I order it every day, like two weeks on it, and then I’ll change.”

Wang also disclosed that she enjoys another chain in addition to the well-known eatery: Dunkin' Donuts. She also mentioned the specific donuts that she typically orders.

She said, “It’s like a jelly donut, but it’s cream inside, vanilla cream. I like the pink with sprinkles, too.”

Wang revealed that working hard throughout her career has been just as important as what she eats, though this isn't the only thing that keeps her young. She said, “Basically, I’ve worked my whole life, so it’s really been about work. I think work keeps you young and stimulated."

In addition, she said that she has continued to prioritize her health in the face of her obligations as a mother and designer. She and her ex-husband, Arthur P Becker, have two children together: Cecilia Becker, 33, and Josephine Becker, 30.

She explained, "I work very long hours, I’ve raised two daughters. I think keeping busy is the best antidote [for] good health."

Wang has previously spoken candidly about her youthfulness. She posted a picture of herself in a sports bra and shorts in 2020, and the image quickly went viral. People complimented her figure—especially her abs—and said she looked "amazing" for her age. In the Instagram post's comments at the time, a fan praised her appearance and inquired about her daily routine.

Wang replied that her everyday routine consisted of "work, sleep, a vodka cocktail, not much sun."

In 2020, the designer mentioned the value of both sleep and vodka in response to a question about her self-care essentials during an interview with People.

She said, "Sleep is key to having survived growing a company, raising two kids. I mean, I don’t think I could exist if I wasn’t able to sleep."

She added, "I had to get rest because I feel it’s a regenerator. So sleep is a very big part and certainly vodka. Because, I mean, it’s just so great to be able to unwind with a cocktail.”
