Iris Apfel - The queen of 'kookie'

There has been a bit of talk recently about the very fashionable Iris Apfel, (born in 1921) who is a style icon at age 90. Proving that beauty and style exists at every age. So it was only fitting that Iris and MAC make-up came together to create a collection of lipsticks, beauty powder and eye-shadows, showing you can have fun with dressing-up, no matter how old you are.

We love her outrageous fashion combinations and quirky accessories. She lives life by her own rules and doesn’t play into trends, quoted as saying, “I don’t like trends anyway – I like tradition.” “You can’t go to the future if you haven’t come from the past.”

Iris has become an icon and muse to the fashion world. The queen of kook has been featured in Pepper magazine, Vogue and The New York Times and has had her image blown up life-size in the window of Barney’s department store.
Iris dares to be bit different. She shows that style isn’t defined by your age, a designer bag, or the latest ‘It’ piece. She has fun with what she wears and makes getting dressed in the morning seem like a special occasion... and why shouldn't it be. And most importantly, Iris proves what we have always thought... one bangle is never enough.

We hope to be that cool when we're 90........

Love, Pink Ink X
