"I think they could be a little bit more well groomed-—if you know what well groomed is, you just take a look in the mirror. Their hair doesn't look neat, they look like they are all messed up. I don't think messy is pretty, I think they should study themselves a little more and not wear something that’s in fashion because it’s in fashion. And you see some enormous young women wearing the skimpiest clothing and it really looks dreadful."

--Iris Apfel on what changes she'd like to see in young people's style today, when we caught up with the eternally chic style icon after her "Good Taste/Bad Taste" conversation with Tavi Gevinson at the Met last night.

At 90-years-old, Apfel has proven that amazing style and success know no age limit, recently launching both a successful makeup collaboration with MAC and her own line of exotic handbags.

So listen to Auntie Iris, kids: Always keep a hairbrush handy, and if the clothes don't fit--well, just don't wear 'em.
