Iris Apfel: “Price Has Nothing To Do With Style”

I finally had the chance to meet the extraordinary Iris Apfel. Her approach to style is legendary in her incorporation of high and low,ethnic and vintage with contemporary trends, and idiosyncratic brand of humor.She is a true style icon who continues to inspire others to express themselves and enjoy life to the fullest. Iris told me that you don’t have to spend a lot of money to be stylish, it is all in how you put things together. She is proof that putting an outfit together can be just as artful as painting a portrait. I hope you enjoy these two small clips and hopefully we will see more of Iris on Advanced Style.
  • Exquisite woman! What an amazing chance to have met her. Rare bird really corrupted my mind into the delusion of having my own museum exhibit! lol!

  • Thank you for sharing Iris Apel style and wisdom with us. I couldn´t agree more: : Style has nothing to do with money.
    Mil besos.

    I am watching the documentary, IRIS. Her opening comment was, "I like individuality. So lost these days. There so much sameness. Everything is homogenized. I hate it."
