No i didnt know who she was either! But after a quick google search i found she is a 'fashion icon', shows how much i know really about fash! And if you did know who she was, high five to you!
Iris Apfel, former interior designer, businesswoman and fashion icon has teamed up with MAC to bring us the Iris Apfel collection and the first collection of 2012. It will be an online exclusive, so not available in store and contains pink and orange toned lipsticks & lip pencils, dark smokey shadows and nail polishes amongst other things.
''A colour collection inspired by a rare bird who has always been ahead of her time,
Mrs. Iris Apfel. Subject of her own exhibit at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art and
larger-than-life star in Barneys New York windows, Apfel boldly mixed flea market finds with hate couture, decades before doing it was considered de rigueur.
M·A·C presents Lipsticks, Beauty Powder and Eye Shadows with as much fabulous flair and joie de vivre as the woman who helped create it.''

Anything catching your eye? I am liking the sound of the pink pigeon lipstick, although not so sure of the matte shade! May have to take the gamble and order!
