Meet Iris

You may have laid eyes on her in those Vogue features that praised her amazing sense of style, her jewelry collection and her “live-through-fashion” motto. She’s 88, calls herself a “geriatric starlet”, lives on the Upper East Side in New York City, in a stunning art-full apartment and she’s the muse of the entire fashion industry at the time. She inspires magazines and designers and has a whole book written as a tribute to her: “Rare Bird of Fashion: The Irreverent Iris Apfel” by Eric Boman and Harold Koda. We advise you to start looking for it and see how beauty is, most of the times, in that thing called style. “If you can’t be pretty, you have to learn to make yourself attractive. I found that all the pretty girls I went to high school with came to middle age as frumps, because they just got by with their pretty faces, so they never developed anything. They never learned how to be interesting. But if you are bereft of certain things, you have to make up for them in certain ways”. Courtesy of Iris!
