Why does this sentence have verb-ing?

0

Here is the sentence: 

- She was aware of people starring at her new dress. 

 

As far as I know, the word starring became a verb+ing because of main verb ''to be''. I don't know whether my explanation is corect. 

 

Please give me clear explanation about the usage of verb-ing in that sentence!

 

Thanks in advance!
