Why does this sentence have verb-ing?


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!
