Iris Apfel, Style Icon
90 years old, and launching a campaign add and being a style icon. It’s bloody 2011, so why not. The lady we are talking about is Iris Apfel, American businesswoman, former interior designer and obviously a style icon. When she was our age, she worked for the Women’s Wear Daily. Few years later she started a textile firm together with her husband untill they both retired. However Iris wouldn’t be Iris if she continued doing some side jobs. And when we say side jobs we are talking about design projects for the White House for nine different presidents, and lecturing on the main fashion schools. But now talk about her style.Lady Apfel is easy recognizable with her massive pair of glasses. If you have to compare her style with some younger style icons it’s probably a mix of Rachel Zoe and Tavi. I am sure Iris Apfel has inspired Rachel to over accessoirize. And Tavi probably would have thought, if a women of 90 could dress like that, why shouldn’t I dress like that while I am 9 years old. Yes, Iris Apfel is the style icon of the style icons. She is not affraid to show some colors, combine prints and wear extra-ordinary accessoires. And it seems she likes chocolate as well.
