Design guru: Iris Apel, 90, has launched a new line of MAC cosmetics

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’sold enough to be a great-grandmother, but the silver-haired sophisticate (pictured) 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’steal 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.

MACdescribes the range as ‘a colour collection inspired by a rare bird whohas always been ahead of her time’. Who’s invisible now
