A Bird Called Iris


She is rather like an exotic bird herself. In all her bejewelled and befeathered glory, Iris Apfel is the latest fashion celebrity to collaborate with MAC. The 90 year old (yes, 90!) business woman, interior designer and fashion icon is certainly one to celebrate with her unmistakable flamboyance and joi de vivre.
The natural look ain't her, so that makes her perfect to co-design a range with MAC, themselves not the most natural of brands!
The line consists of deep pigments in strong, brave, vibrant tones. Lipsticks in hot pinks, obvious oranges and red reds, eyeshadows in peacock hues and nail polishes to be seen from space!
It looks like a great colour collection and with the items named after exotic birds it's a great representation of the old bird herself!

Check out this great interview with Iris on Into The Gloss where she shares her thoughts on beauty...

I love Iris and have had that ITG interview bookmarked to read when I have time to savour it properly :) Thanks for the reminder.

I love the specs graphic and those colours at least look some what reflective of Iris' taste/personality - I thought the Daphne Guinness collection was a real disappointment.
