From Bazaar Arabia - Sept 2021
We honour fashion’s grande dame @iris.apfel as she turns a century old, by styling her in the Arab world’s most Apfelesque creations for this special edition of Bazaar Arabia’s September 2021 issue.
“I think it’s foolish for women to hide their age and try to say they’re years younger than they are. It doesn’t make any sense to me. I think if God is good to you and gives you those years, you should celebrate them,” she tells us.
“I never think about it. People obsess over things, and it’s a fact of life. People always talk about my age, but I don’t feel uncomfortable.”
Iris Apfel (née Barrel; born August 29, 1921) is an American businesswoman, interior designer, and fashion icon.
