"I have rarely met someone as vivid, as alive, as vital, vivacious, irreverent, joyous, relevant, and needed as Iris. She breathes young air, thinks young thoughts, and gathers no dust. I simply love her."- Dries Van Noten
- Fashion Icon Iris Apfel's second book, Iris Apfel: Accidental Icon - Musings of a Geriatric Starlet.
