Iris Apfel, in Iris: 'It's Better to Be Happy Than Well-Dressed'


Looking for something empowering, touching, and just plain awesome to get your week started on a good note? Look no further than the trailer to the upcoming documentary Iris, which chronicles the life of 93-year old fashion icon Iris Apfel and opens in New York theaters on April 29.

If the name doesn’t ring a bell just yet, Apfel’s sense of style definitely will: known for her vibrant, textile-infused wardrobe and elaborate collection of couture costume jewelry—and those glasses—Iris presents itself as a glimpse into the history of a woman who ignored the rules and wrote her own story along the way.

She did a great interview with this month’s Harper’s Bazaar, where she says that caviar used to be her “drug of choice”; that she lives in jeans; and that if you “dress with a little humor, you can go a long way.”
