Iris Apfel might be 97 years old – but age is just a number, style is her passion, and she has achieved celebrity status in this regard, and recently signed with IMG who will market her for appearances, endorsements and modelling contracts.
This icon is pushing the boundaries for older women, and as she says, “"I don’t think a number should make any difference and make you stop working," she said. "I think retirement is a fate worse than death. I love to work, and love my work. I feel sorry for people who don’t like what they do. I do it now to the exclusion of everything else. I meet interesting, creative people, my juices flow and I really have a fine time."
