NEW AGE: “If you won’t step outside the box, you can end up in it,” said the charmingly eccentric fashion icon, Iris Apfel. The 93-year-old is the subject of Al Maysles’ adoring documentary “Iris,” which The New York Film Festival screened Thursday night.
Apfel and her husband Carl, who just turned 100, were surrounded by fans at the after party. They couldn’t get enough photos of the couple … snaps that probably were headed for Instagram, one of the many facets of social media that Iris Apfel ignores. She insisted she prefers “sending pigeons.”
