Style icon in her 90s
92 year-old style icon Iris Apfel is everything but old! She calls herself a geriatric starlet
and the world’s oldest teenager, but the rest of the world calls her style icon. She is
fashion’s latest muse who inspires everyone from designers to fashion magazine editors
and is admired for her unique fashion style, her young spirit and wit.
Apart from her business career as an interior designer, Iris Apfel is also known for her
oversized signature glasses, more-is-more way of accessorizing (in her own words
“more is more and less is a bore”), giant necklaces layered over each other and bangles
stacked up her arms. She inspires everyone around her to do more, learn more and be
more. She believes that “price has nothing to do with style” and she proves it with
incorporating high and low fashion, vintage, ethnic and contemporary trends and a sense
of humor. Mrs Apfel is indeed the stylish legendary New Yorker.
