At 95, Iris Apfel seems to be hitting her stride. Over the past year, we've seen the nonagenarian execute a line of socks and underwear and a collection with Macy's, not to mention her own library of emojis.

In honor of International Women's Day last week, the New Potato resurfaced an interview with the style icon, in which Apfel shares just how she's thriving through retirement.

"I always eat well; I never eat junk food. I don't drink soda. I used to smoke four packs a day! But I gave it up; I just quit one day. I don't do any exercises regularly. I don't drink heavily, but I do have a drink now and then."

There you have it, straight from the (clothes) horse's mouth. Forgo junk food, soda, and smokes for style in droves.
