As if it wasn’t already, it’s now official that 91-year-old Iris Apfel is our role model. Whether it’s in the form of her outlandish fashion or rollicking one-liners, she always delivers the gumption we often only wish we could pull off. In a new short film from NOWNESS, we get plenty of both when Apfel visits the zoo with dear friend and London-based designer Duro Olowu.
Taking cues from the success of Target‘s high fashion collaborations, JC Penney has tapped Nigerian-born and London-based designer Duro Olowu for a collaboration slated to hit its stores next month.
Anytime we get to bask in Iris Apfel‘s glow is a treat, and her latest video with Advanced Style‘s Ari Seth Cohen is just pure gold.
Nonagenarian Iris Apfel is dominating the fashion world one sector at a time. After designing jewelry, eyewear, makeup, and handbags, the 91-year-old “geriatric starlet” is launching a line of shoes with HSN.
What does one wear to a 111th birthday party? Well, if it’s Bergdorf Goodman‘s, it better be something extraordinary.
Ari Seth Cohen and the ever-inspiring ladies of Advanced Style were on The Today Show this morning talking with host Matt Lauer about (what else?) the age-defying pleasure of dressing up.
Can you guess who it is?
Yesterday we made our way to New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art to see a talk for the Costume Institute‘s Schiaparelli and Prada: Impossible Conversations exhibit. It was a conversation, and an entirely possible one at that, between Tavi Gevinson and Iris Apfel. And yet, a discussion about personal style between a 16-year-old and a 90-year-old did seem rather impossible: how could two women so far apart in age have a cohesive exchange about something that transforms so much with the passing of time?
Like Jenna Lyons, we’re obsessed with Iris Apfel. In fact, we think that everyone, including movers and shakers in the fashion industry, could learn more than a few things from the nonagenarian style icon. Like how to make some serious money.
Best person ever Iris Apfel is donating more than 900 pieces from her wardrobe to a museum! The pieces are going to the Peabody Essex in Salem, Massachusetts.
We agree with Jenna Lyons on pretty much everything. Don’t you?
Iris Apfel: still cooler than you.
The moment you didn’t know you were waiting for is here! Iris Apfel, fashion icon, lover of jewelry and all things sparkly and fun, is coming out with her own line of makeup for MAC – and it’ll be in stores for you to snap up in just a few weeks.
When you think Iris Apfel, two things come to mind: jewelry and glasses. The 90-year-old has embarked on a slew of jewelry collaborations as of late, and now she’s getting into the eyewear game.
Iris Apfel is probably one of the most stylish women alive today, so when she announced she’d be selling a few pieces of her personal collection online, a lot of people (us included) got real excited that we’d be able to buy a piece of her unique style. But Apfel herself says that her penchant for layering on bauble after bauble after bauble wasn’t entirely innate: she got it from her mom.
