Iris Apfel, a fashion icon and interior decorator is celebrating her 99th birthday in style today. Apfel, who has an easily-recognizable, eclectic and bold look, is credited by many as one of the first people to exude and celebrate what we now refer to as personal style.
The self-described “geriatric starlet” posted about her special day on Instagram where her tagline is “More is more & less is a bore.”
“My old hourglass is doing just fine… Sand’s dripping away, arriving at ninety plus nine. Happy Birthday to Me, may I be of good cheer! To give thanks for thriving & surviving one hell of a year!” Apfel posted along with a picture of herself looking fabulous in a green dress to match her green birthday balloons and surrounded by a menagerie of stuffed animals.
According to CNBC, Apfel was born in New York City on Aug. 29, 1921
