The new line of MAC cosmetics is designed by Iris Apfel, 90-year-old American business- woman, interior designer and fashion icon.

London - Until recently, women over a certain age were often deemed invisible by the world of fashion.

Let’s not forget, this is a world where it’s totally normal for 15-year-olds to be the face of Miu Miu, and 37-year-old model Kate Moss is considered more “vintage” than her collection of designer dresses.

Yet the new line of MAC cosmetics is designed by Iris Apfel, 90-year-old American business- woman, interior designer and fashion icon.

She’s old enough to be a great-grandmother, but the silver-haired sophisticate is more likely to be seen in a nightclub than a nursing home.

Appropriately for a woman who refuses to fade quietly, her new cosmetic collection is a riotous rainbow palette.

Apfel’s teal green Robin’s Egg eyeshadow is bright enough to make your peepers pop, her Toco Toucan nail polish is a startling fuchsia and the Party Parrots lipstick is a bright reddy shade.

MAC describes the range as “a colour collection inspired by a rare bird who has always been ahead of her time”. Who’s invisible now? - Daily Mail
