Iris Apfel: Style Icon

Iris Apfel, 89, was recently given the Global Style Icon award at the WGSN Global Fashion Awards. Simon Doonan of Barneys said, ““Before there was Daphne Guinness, Tilda Swinton, and before there was Lady Gaga, there was Iris Apfel.” The trendsetter shared her fashion advice with Style.com before the event saying, “If it takes too much effort [to put an outfit together], then it wasn’t right.” Kudos, Iris!
