Iris Apfel wearing Comme des Garcons on the cover of Dazed & Confused’s November 2012 issue (photographed by Jeff Bark) is the thing we never knew we were missing in our lives. Simply put, she’s amazing, and this magazine cover is amazing. Who better than the legendary Ms. Apfel to model Dazed & Confused's take on “The New Aesthetic: Art from the Outer Limits”?
“Just brilliant,” Miss Dalloway posted. “Love her, and love them for picking Iris for the cover.”
ChristyLeReveur wrote, “This is quite eccentric but I love it.”
“She pulls off Comme des Garcons so well! Brilliant idea and cover model,” Razzer commented.
Iris is the kooky, cool old lady that we all secretly (or not so secretly) hope to be one day. But, if seeing more of Iris isn’t enough to sway you (though it should be) that this issue is worth picking up, there’s an editorial with jewelry designer Delfina Delettrez’s talismanic jewelry, and lots of other cool arty, fashiony things. Try not to be too blown away by my artful skills of persuasion. Just get it for Iris. She's what you really want, even if you don't know it yet.
