Susan Lucci was radiant with youthful energy at 77 when she attended a disability gala in New York on Wednesday.

The soap opera icon was timelessly glamorous as she strutted her stuff for the cameras at Cipriani 42nd Street in Midtown.

She was a spectacular presence at the 2024 ADAPT Leadership Awards, benefiting a nonprofit focused on people with disabilities.

For her latest public appearance, Susan draped her impressively lithe frame in a strapless party dress with a Beetlejuice-chic black and white motif.

Her smart dress was cinched in to emphasize her enviably petite waist and taut midriff and was cut high enough to hint at her toned legs.

Expertly balancing on a pair of towering metallic-accented stilettos, she swept her walnut brown hair into a towering beehive reminiscent of the 1960s.

Her radiant complexion, which appeared to be almost completely untouched by the vicissitudes of age, was enhanced with elegant makeup.

The 5’1″ actress, who earned a staggering 21 Daytime Emmy nominations but only won once in a competitive category, modeled a set of drop earrings.

Last year, Susan added another Daytime Emmy to her list with a Lifetime Achievement gong, coming four decades into her run on All My Children.

Susan is one of the honorary chairs for Wednesday’s gala, along with names like TV anchors Rosanna Scotto and Willie Geist.

Among the many honored that night were New York Islanders co-owner Jon Ledecky, Craig Melvin of the Today show and sportscaster Lindsay Czarniak.

Although Susan shows few outward signs of her advancing age, she has been open about suffering from heart problems in recent years.

In the last half decade alone, she has had to undergo two heart surgeries and as a result has changed her eating habits.

In a recent interview with Fox Newsshe talked about there being three specific ‘superfoods’ she includes in her daily intake – kale, salmon and blueberries.

She explained that she follows a Mediterranean diet, adding: ‘I have the occasional pasta and carbs. But the key is moderation.’

Almost two years ago, Susan suffered the loss of her husband, Austrian chef Helmut Huber, who died aged 84 after 52 years of marriage.

“My husband was an executive chef trained in Europe,” Susan recalled as she explained the recent changes she has made to her diet.

I remember eating everything he made. It was like monopoly food and I built up cholesterol,’ she confessed.

Now she tries to avoid high cholesterol foods, but as she insisted: ‘It’s not about being trendy, it’s about being your best self’.
