The latest IT girl Mrs Iris Apfel, actually she has been on the scene since there was a scene to be on.  90yr old Iris Apfel  is an amazing women in fashion, starting out as a copywriter for WWD. From there she moved onto creating textiles with her husband at their firm, Old World Weavers for the white house & clients such as Estee Lauder.  Iris became a permanent fixture on the New York social scene, often being photographed in the style section of the New York Times.   Recently when asked if she is ever tempted to say something to someone who she thinks looks dreadful she replied, 'Oh, now that would be horrible. It's a free country - if you want to look like a freak, that's your problem.'
