Iris Apfel’s Guilty Pleasure

Iris Apfel & Ari Seth Cohen – Drug of Choice from The Avant/Garde Diaries on Vimeo.

I had the pleasure of interviewing Iris Apfel for the latest video installment of Avant Garde Diaries. Check out our conversation above to find out Iris’ guilty pleasure.

  • Omg!! She is amazing. I love her. So sharp and stylish. This video was great! So interesting.

  • "Caviar is my drug of choice, yum yum," could she be any more perfect??

    Fabulous interview – I adore Iris Apfel and was lucky enough to see her recently at Loehmann's Fashion Night out. Her exhibit at the Met was the first time I had heard of this incredible woman and I often look through the accompanying book.
    Thank you for your interview!

    Very moody — love the music and dark colors and the little objects in Iris' apartment. Love her New York accent — the way she says "caviar". Love the little shoe dance. Great interview, Ari.

  • I just found your blog and it's so wonderful!
    My mother is in her "second spring" right now and has so much fun with fashion again. I think I can still learn a lot from her 😀

    I will explore your blog now 😉

  • Now I am sure that Iris and I could hang out. We could sip tea (or Vodka, play with our shoes and eat caviar. Please let me know time to arrive. (Great interview…I was hoping for an hour…)

  • So much wisdom, ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
    I am fainting!!!

  • Love Iris!!

    She´s amazing!!!

    I love Iris's style–so dramatic and fearless. I love my chunky, bold jewelry, too, only not to her "maximus style". I've ordered Eric Boman's book on Iris, "Rare Bird of Fashion", and can hardly wait to read it!

  • I love her! Id never want to dress the same right now but when im her age (God willing) i would love to follow her style!

    I cannot thank you enough Ari for the wonderful work that is your blog. I wonder whether you know how much happiness your blog brings to people. Please tell Iris that she is the best!! I love her!
