She was an interior designer, a textile expert and fashion celebrity known for her eccentric style.

Iris Apfel has died at the age of 102.

With her signature over-sized, round, black-rimmed glasses, bright red lipstick and short white hair, Apfel was famous for her whimsical, eye-catching outfits, mixing haute couture with oversized costume jewelry, standing out at every fashion show she attended.

For example, a classic Apfel look would pair a feather boa with strands of chunky beads, bangles and a jacket decorated with Native American beadwork.

She was a social media star, having amassed almost 3 million followers on Instagram.

No cause of death has been announced.
