BEAUTY FASHION & FAME

“Rare Bird of Fashion: The Irreverent Iris Apfel,” (Thames & Hudson,
2007). She is a fixture of the society columns. Swathed in longhair
fur, she was the improbable star of a 2008 Coach advertising campaign.
And now she will join a string of fashion divas
Harold Koda, the curator of the Costume Institute of the Metropolitan
Museum of Art, who organized Mrs. Apfel’s first museum exhibition in
2006, noted at the time: “To dress this way, there has to be an
educated visual sense. I keep thinking, ‘Don’t try this at home.’ ”
Women view her as a role model: “A lot of them have told me, ‘Now that
I’ve met you, I feel so liberated.’ ” Secret eccentrics, they have
learned, Mrs. Apfel maintained, “that when you don’t dress like
everybody else, you don’t have to think like everybody else.”
