MAC’s Senior Vice President/Group Creative Director, James Gager, once told me that MAC likes to collaborate with people who no one else would “ever think of using in a million years.” Exhibit A? Meet MAC’s new face, Iris Apfel.
Her line will debut on January 5, and follows closely on the heels of fellow fashion eccentric, Daphne Guinness' collection. It’s a full line, complete with five lipsticks (our fave is called Loudmouth Orange), lip pencils, and eye shadows like Howzat, a sparkly grey. It’s rounded out by mascara (gotta make your eyes pop through those glasses, right?), a peachy “beauty powder,” and three nail lacquers–a bright blue, bright fuchsia and a neutral.
We are loving that more, ahem, mature ladies, like Meryl Streep on her historic Vogue cover, are getting some love this month. I mean, how amazing does Iris look here??
