Iris Apfel, the beloved 93-year-old New York fashion icon, rose to fame in 2005 when the Metropolitan Museum of Art mounted an exhibition celebrating her ability to transform herself into an otherworldly creature through clothes and accessories.

Apfel is now 93 and continues to find joy in self-presentation. Her ceaseless delight is captured in the documentary “Iris” by the late Albert Maysles

Apfel was well into her eighties when she became an It girl; it wasn’t until a 2005 exhibition at the Costume Institute that she became publicly known. Years before that, though, her style sense had earned her a quiet following among the arbiters of taste.

In the movie, Apfel talks about her taste, her influences, and the challenges of starring in a movie by Albert Maysles, a canonic New York documentarian who died this March, at 88.
