What’s not to love about Iris Apfel? The fearless, fascinating 97-year-old fashion icon is an inspiration to us all. Totally in awe of Apfel, I wrote an entire blog post on her earlier into my blogging life, all based on me stalking her online. Click here to read it.

This month, all eyes are on the Cannes Film Festival but I’ll be looking out for our girl Iris. At 97 she’s debuting as a movie star for Magnum. Imagine my excitement with the news that my all-time favorite fashion icon is now the face of one of my favorite ice-cream brands ever!

Magnum ice-cream and I go back a long time. I’ve had a love affair with this calorie-laden, Belgian chocolate coated yumminess for as long as I can remember. Back home in New Zealand, they’d come up with limited edition Magnum flavours, and I remember taking over the family freezer when they introduced the absolutely divine Honeycomb edit where the milk chocolate casing was bejewelled with crunchy hokeypokey and the inner ice-cream was this golden-hued honeycomb flavour. So glad they’ve made this flavour mainstream, my family can now share the freezer again.
