Nonagenarian Iris Apfel yet again proves herself to be a truly brilliant gem; we should all heed her life and enjoy life to the full
On Thursday, the brilliantly talented wildcard this is the nonagenarian Iris Apfel – a woman who believes “more is more and less is a bore” –announced that she had become an ambassador for the Magnum ice cream brand.
The 97 year old designer – who has worked at the White House for nine presidents (Truman, Eisenhower, Kennedy, Johnson, Nixon, Ford, Carter, Reagan and Clinton) and also signed a modelling contract with the global agency IMG earlier this year – stated: “Aside from the fact the Magnum is truly delicious, I adore their message about pursuing pleasure. Never stop playing, no matter who you are!”
Well said indeed, Iris. Without people like you, the world would be a truly duller place.
