STYLE ICON IRIS APFEL STILL ROCKS AT 93
A new documentary celebrates the large-than-life personality of a trend-setter
Who said fashion bravado is for the young only? Just ask style icon Iris Apfel, who at 93 is still rocking with her ingrained yet irreverent elegance that nonchalantly melds ethnic flourishes, a Boho vibe and haute couture confections - all topped by her signature over-sized glasses, red lipstick and exaggerated jewelry, of the bolder-the-better variety.
Apfel’s style, eye and flair are recounted in a new documentary called Iris by Albert Maysles, out this month. In the film, her life is counterpointed by moments with Bruce Weber, Kanye West and Jenna Lyons and by quiet old-age life in her Park Avenue apartment.
