Vera Wang has the body of a woman half her age. And then some.
The 63 year-old clothing designer and billion dollar wedding dress doyenne wowed in a black swimsuit for the February issue of Harper’s Bazaar.
Still, she admitted she wasn’t quite comfortable baring her body for the cameras.
“Ask anyone who’s traveled with me. Normally, I’m in so many layers, I look like Lawrence of Arabia,” she said.
When asked if she liked how she looked, she said, “No, honey, I’m a little horrified.”
Wang who has spent most of her life in New York, opened up her four bedroom Beverly Hills home, to show how she outfitted her home.
“It’s a zen escape,” she explains. “New York for me is about work. If L.A. were to become a West Coast version of that, I’d shoot myself. The climate, the lifestyle — it really fits as the yin to my New York yang.”
The house, which was built in 1967, has eyepopping views of the Los Angeles Basin and the Pacific Ocean.
She said it was a great relief to find a home instead of staying in so many hotels while in California.
“It’s difficult to relax in a hotel lobby, not knowing who you’re going to bump into,” says Wang. “And no matter how great a suite is, after a while you start to go a little psycho.”
