10 elder fashion icons who prove style is timeless – Mashable

For the stylish Iris Apfel, age is nothing but a number.

Dubbed the “rare bird of fashion,” the 93-year-old New Yorker is one of fashion’s oldest icons. Famous for wearing huge, black-rimmed glasses and countless accessories, Apfel’s impressive life has gotten the documentary treatment.

Directed by the late Albert Maysles (famous for Grey Gardens and Gimme Shelter), Iris is a look into the everyday life of the chic nonagenarian. It spans her youth in Queens, her fashionable ascent and her love life with husband Carl, who is 101 years old.

Though Apfel is one of a kind, she isn’t the only elderly icon of the fashion world. From supermodels to artists to magazine editors, here are 10 women who prove a sense of style has no age limit.
