Meet “Iris,” Your New Fashion Idol And All-Around Life Inspiration

Iris Apfel, textile enthusiast, former White House interior designer and woman with zero fashion fucks to give, is the subject of the late Albert Maysles’ documentary “Iris,” opening April 24, and it looks awesome. Like, “seeing it twice” awesome. Look at her! She  inherently understands that fashion should be fun, not a regimented set of rules on how you should do anything, and she looks like the kind of elegant mess that I’m aspiring to be in my dotage. Watch as she wanders through flea markets and lounges on opulent divans, whilst clad in various patterns and piles of jangly, clanky costume jewelry.
