Quotable: Iris Apfel isn’t just some empty-headed fashionista

Iris Apfel is exactly what we want to be when we get older. She’s inspired everything from a M.A.C collection to a pair of Jimmy Choo pumps to a tattoo on the body of Alexis Bittar PR Director Samantha Shaw‘s body. But don’t get the sassy granny wrong, she has more than fashion on her mind. The icon told Advanced Style‘s Ari Seth Cohen:

“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.”
