look of the day

Tickle Me, Iris Apfel

To shield themselves from the February cold, certain fall 2013 Fashion Week showgoers turned to Muppet-inspired outerwear — a trend that inexplicably resurfaces season after season. On day one, Sarah Jessica Parker opted for a Cookie Monster–blue fur jacket, worn with an LBD, bare legs, and coral-colored pumps. But, yesterday, Iris Apfel took Sesame Street dressing to a whole ‘nother level, putting on a bright red fluffy coat, turtleneck, scarf, trousers, and duck boots. She completed her monochromatic look with matching lipstick and silver jewelry … and we just want to squeeze her thrice, so she’ll laugh; however, we always want to, regardless of her outfit.
