WE CELEBRATE THE INDIVIDUAL STYLE of Iris Apfel, the quick-witted, flamboyantly dressed 93-year-old style maven. The new documentary, IRIS, more than a fashion film, is a story about creativity and how a soaring free spirit continues to inspire. We share some of her words of wisdom about style.

“You don’t have to look like an old fuddy-duddy, but I believe it was Chanel who said, ‘Nothing makes a woman look so old as trying desperately hard to look young’.
