Vera Wang talks the realities of aging, including why she hasn't gone gray yet, on Julia Louis-Dreyfus' podcast

Vera Wang isn't letting her gray hair grow in any time soon.

On a May 22 episode of Lemonda Media's Wiser Than Me with Julia Louis-Dreyfus podcast, the designer, 74, shared just why she "can't" embrace her silver strands just yet.

“I dye my hair, I'm [about to be] 75 years old,” Wang told host Julia Louis-Dreyfus when the topic of her signature hairstyle came up.

Wang went on to explain that her gray is not growing in evenly and that if she let it grow in as-is, "I would look like a bad skunk."

Wang also spoke candidly about the realities of aging, such as wanting to still be alive to see her daughters, Cecilia, 33, and Josephine, 30, walk down the aisle in one of her creations.

“I'm hoping I get the wedding before I die, both weddings,” said Wang, who designed her own bridal look in 1989 before she eventually moved on to making dresses for the stars. “I certainly hope I'm alive and well and can do it."

When it comes to romantic relationships, Wang shares that she’s dated here and there, but hasn’t found the process “easy.” She and Arthur Becker divorced in 2012 after 23 years of marriage.

“When you’re a working woman to the extent that I am and other women that I know, love and respect are, maybe it can be a bit intimidating," she says.

The single life has had its benefits, she shares. "Being alone, I began to be able to give myself permission to take a little bit better care of myself," she said on the podcast, adding that she's recently conquered 100-pound leg presses.

In the same way she's focused on getting stronger by staying active, Wang plans to keep on making strides in her career.

“I think maybe a little bit like Warren Buffett [age 93] or Queen Elizabeth II [who reigned the British monarchy for seven decades until she was 96], I'm just going to keep prodding on because I feel as though I'm able to do my best work more and more," she told PEOPLE in April ahead of her 75th birthday on June 27. "I'm really trying to respect that in me, that voice in me, that I feel very happy to be creating. That's what it's all about, really.”
