What’s the First Thing Iris Apfel Thinks About When She Gets Up in the Morning?


In a video interview for Advanced Style, Iris Apfel says she does a lot besides fashion, like charity work, programs with students, museum shows, and "all kinds of things ... that might directly or indirectly benefit people." She adds, "I just would like people to know that I’m not some empty-headed fashionista who thinks about nothing but getting dressed. People ask me all the time, 'What do you think about when you get up in the morning — about planning an outfit?' My god, if I did that, I would have to kill myself."
