“Dressing should be fun. Life is short and life is grey, so you can easily dress yourself up, make yourself happy, and then you make other people happy.” That’s Iris Apfel, kooky 90-year-old style icon whose big ol’ bug glasses have become her signature look. Albert Maysles, the filmmaker behind “Grey Gardens,” is filming a documentary about her life and influence on style and this five-minute trailer/promo thing promises it’ll be grand. How many other old ladies do you know with a MAC and QVC line and use words like “hoosegow”? We also get to meet Mr. Iris Apfel, who is adores his wife after all these years. Join the club, buddy.

Alicia Silverstone a thing of the past? As if! The actress, best known for her roles in “Clueless” and a couple of epic Aerosmith videos, sat down for an interview with director Amy Heckerling in the latest issue of Bullett magazine. Heckerling directed Silverstone in “Clueless” and the two reminisced about the good ol’ days (ahh, the 1990s!) and what Silverstone would have done differently following her rise to stardom. But maybe any regrets she has will fade away if her latest effort with Heckerling, the upcoming film “Vamps,” has critics and audiences totally buggin’. Let’s hope! See the full shoot above and read the interview at the link! [Bullett]
