Think your clothes are fierce? They've got nothing on Iris Apfel, the style icon whose wardrobe was once put on display at the Metropolitan Museum of Art to prove "the power of dress and accessories to assert style above fashion, the individual above the collective." She may be 100 years old, but Apfel has more than proven herself a force in fashion, and her story is captured in the last documentary by the late Albert Maysles, of Grey Gardens fame. Iris arrives this weekend. Watch the trailer below.
