Got a girl crush on: Iris Apfel
Came across Iris Apfel on OK Great today, and lemme tell you—she is one bitchin’ granny. She puts the “granny” AND the “chic” in “granny chic”. Her wardrobe is absolutely out of this world and is currently on display at the Peabody Essex Museum in Massachusetts:
Rare Bird of Fashion: The Irreverent Iris Apfel presents more than 80 dramatic ensembles from the personal collections of legendary tastemaker and style icon Iris Apfel. Known for her eclectic mixing of haute couture with costume jewelry and exotic baubles, Apfel has inspired bold developments in the fashion industry through her spirited irreverence and pitch-perfect taste. Now in her 88th year, she continues to challenge visual culture with radical juxtapositions of disparate influences. These spectacular and unexpected wardrobe combinations are exhibited with inventive staging and playful displays that underscore Apfel’s inexhaustible creative spirit.
If you’re in the area please go on my behalf. Homegirl’s also got a Facebook.
