She’s the undisputed style icon with an infectious love of fashion, beauty, interiors and a life lived fabulously: Iris Apfel, American original, true individual, 101-year old Instagram sensation and lover of bright colours and great glasses - knows a thing or two about what makes the perfect gift. So in time for the holidays, we asked her to pick her standouts from the Beauty Pie lineup - and why they make great gifts, too.
I see myself as the world’s oldest living teenager, because I have such a good time, and because I try and get as much of a kick out of things as possible.
