A New York socialite and fashion legend, this quirky 90-year-old is known for her eclectic and eccentric fashion sense, and of course a whopping pair of Harry Potter-esq glasses. She is such a notable style icon, that in 2005, the Metropolitan Museum of Art premiered an exhibition her entitled Rara Avis (Rare Bird): The Irreverent Iris Apfel. Perhaps it’s Apfel’s ‘fabulous flair and joie de vivre’ — as quoted by MAC Cosmetics — that inspired them to work with her. Last week Mac Collection launched IRIS for MAC, a 21 piece collection with names  inspired by birds.
