Iris, a Documentary about New York’s Eccentric Fashion Muse

Iris Apfel documentary

Since 93-year-old Iris Apfel became became famous on the Advanced Style blog, she’s pretty much made growing old cool. She’s the kind of woman I like to think I’ll model myself on if I reach the ripe old age of 93. She’s free spirited, witty, flambouyant and most of all she thinks ‘dressing your age is stupid.’ This beautiful documentary captures her creativity, free spirit and passion for art and people. It also reminds us that dressing and indeed life, is nothing but an experiment. So inspiring! Here’s the trailer.

The documentary opens in New York on 29 April and London on 31 July.

Update: the documentary is now out on DVD. You can buy it here and here.
