Ninety-year-old Iris Apfel has the distinction of being the oldest makeup model around, thanks to her famous collaboration with MAC, but she's also into accessories. She's already designed collections for Yoox and the Home Shopping Network, but her latest collab, with eyebobs, is the one we've all been waiting for. She's created a line sunglasses that will debut in 2013, but one style—the "Iris," naturally—is available now.

“Without a doubt, eyewear is an important accessory because it can change your whole look, and I think accessories are the most important part of a woman’s wardrobe," she said in press release. "The beauty of eyebobs is that the price points allow for different frames for different looks.” The sunnies come in three colors for retails for $99 for the polarized and and $75 for the sun-reader option.
