I just watched the film Iris yesterday. It’s a documentary about Iris Apfel, an extraordinary woman with a very rich life, who is still a fashion icon at 94.
Iris calls herself a “geriatric starlet”. She is known for her flamboyant wardrobe and passion for accessories. She’s also known for her signature enormous glasses. But Iris was more than simply a fashion expert, she was a successful business woman—she and her husband Carl had a great textile company that gave her the opportunity to travel all over the world. Can you believe she took part in design projects at the White House for nine presidents? Truman, Eisenhower, Kennedy, Johnson, Nixon, Ford, Carter, Reagan, and Clinton!
Do yourselves a favor and watch it (you can rent it in iTunes).
As she says: “You only have one trip…. you might as well enjoy it!”
