Meet 93-year-old "It Girl" Iris Apfel.
Born August 29, 1921, Iris Apfel is the grande dame of advanced style. One of the most colorful characters on the New York City fashion scene, she is also the subject of an upcoming documentary by the late, great Albert Maysles. The legendary filmmaker passed away last week at the age of 88, but his work featuring the nonagenarian style maven will hit theaters on April 29th. And if the recently released trailer is any indication, this film will be everything.
