Vera Wang is 71 and looking fabulous! The iconic fashion designer, who celebrated her birthday Saturday, showed off her youthful physique and style Friday while celebrating LGBT Pride Month.

"PRIDE Workout," she captioned the snap. Wang's followers couldn't have loved the photos more. "I've come to realise that Vera Wang is quite probably the most stylish & coolest person ever," one person wrote. Another commented, "I sooo admire you, Vera. You inspire me to look better and be more confident of myself as I age."

Posting the miniature recreation on her own Instagram as a side-by-side with the original photo, the birthday girl wrote, "Just had to post this cutie...... an early bday present!"

Wang's youthful appearance has captured the attention of fans and followers over the last few months, with the designer responding to a curious commenter questioning her flat stomach secrets in May that she relies on "work, sleep, a vodka cocktail and not much sun." She told another person asking about what she has been drinking to maintain her appearance that Diet Coke is her "fave."

In 2016, Wang told Harper's Bazaar that she lifts weights every day to maintain her health. "Not much — two pounds and three pounds," she said at the time. "It takes me a total of like five minutes." She added that while she tries to eat clean most of the time, she is a "chip freak." Wang explained, "We have candy pantry, a cereal pantry, and a pantry for what I call ‘orange food.' Cheetos, Pepperidge Farm Goldfish, all kinds of chips.”
