“It’s like a jelly donut, but it’s cream inside, vanilla cream.

But of course it isn’t just what she eats that’s important, Wang has attributed her youthfulness to her work life too.

She told Page Six: “Basically, I’ve worked my whole life, so it’s really been about work.

“I think work keeps you young and stimulated.

“I work very long hours, I’ve raised two daughters.

“I think keeping busy is the best antidote [for] good health.”

The fashion designer has always been notorious for her youthful looks, but went viral in 2020 after posting a picture of her gorgeous physique in an orange crop top and white shorts.

At the time Wang was ‘shocked’ by the response to the picture she posted, but told her fans her secret to staying young was ‘work, sleep, a vodka cocktail, and not much sun’.

Reacting to the post, one fan said: “Homegirl just went and unsubscribed from aging.”

Another said: “She’s 70, I need better genes.”
