Iris Review

Image for Iris

Ninety-three-year-old Iris Apfel has been a favourite of the New York art and fashion scene for decades due to her creativity and unique personality and passion.

★★★★

“I don’t give a damn about going to the party… just getting dressed for the party.” So says Iris Apfel, 93, in this spirited documentary about the American fashion icon. An interior decorator, style consultant and darling of the New York art scene, she is more than anything a character: a sharp-talking eccentric with a fascinating array of opinions and outrageous wardrobe options whose anecdotes cover more than the fashion world (she worked on design projects at the White House, for one). Late director Albert Maysles (Gimme Shelter) beautifully captures her personality and her passion for creativity.
