This 99 year old designer has a career which has spanned over seven decades and she continues to create. She is the ultimate Barbie who got her Ken in her husband Carl. They spent close to 70 years together before his passing in 2015. This was the same year as a Netflix documentary on their lives was produced.
Always interested in fashion and design the two worked together creatively on everything from the White House to fabric design. Her love for bright colors, oversized eyeglasses, and jewelry are her trademark. At 99, she continues to be a “geriatric starlet” as she describes herself on her Instagram page.
“Style is a way to say who you are without having to speak.” -Iris Apfel
And she certainly says it well.
