So have you heard of Iris Apfel? I want to be just like her when I grow up. She’s a 97-year-old business woman, designer, and fashion icon who just signed with the IMG agency as a model. This is the same agency which represents Bella Hadid and Chrissy Teigen. Not bad for a nonagenarian.
Iris caught everyone’s eye in 2005 when an exhibition about her sense of style premiered at The Costume Institute at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. From there an “Accidental Icon” was born. Iris has inspired women of all ages to take a chance with fashion. Bold colors, multiple layers, mixed accessories? The more, the better! In 2018, Iris even had a Barbie doll crafted in her image by Mattel.
