Fashion | Video: Style icon Iris Apfel on style

I fell in love with style icon and self-described “geriatric starlet” Iris Apfel when I saw her in a Liz Claiborne ad when I was in university. I was inspired by the uber-stylish octogenarian’s affinity for over-sized statement accessories and her eclectic sense of style. Advanced Style blogger Ari Seth Cohen spoke with Apfel about what she defines as “style.”

It often seems that there is a demonizing of things that are affordable within society so it’s nice to hear someone as respected as Apfel remind us that style is not restricted by price. Apfel is not only an inspiration for my golden years but also for today as well.
