Style Maker: Iris Apfel

When we found out that Iris Apfel held a discussion with teen blogger Tavi Gevinson at the Metropolitan Museum of Art this past Sunday, we were intrigued. The 90 year-old businesswoman, interior design guru and fashion icon has a style all her own. Apfel, who was born and raised in Queens, doesn’t let her age play a factor in her fashion sense. In fact, she says her ‘adventuresome fashion sense has increased with age.’ Apfel was featured in Ari Cohen’s book, Advanced Style where she revealed some tidbits of her eclectic and texture rich closet and apartment. Who’s afraid of aging again? A look at Apfel’s smiling face, rounded glasses and colorful wardrobe makes us hope we can be half as vivacious as she is when we’re her age. Like she says kids, ‘style is ageless.’

During a recent interview, the slender Apfel said: “I don’t care what people think…I learned a long time ago…I was 19 and had a very traumatic experience…and I learned that I have to go to bed with myself and that I have to please myself…and as long as I don’t go out of my way to offend anybody that I love, I’ll do my own thing.”
