Fashion icon, Iris Apfel, celebrates her 102nd birthday in newly shared photos.

Among Apfel's 2.8 million Instagram followers, a host of fans and fashion watchers posted their birthday blessings, including Christina Hendricks, who commented on Apfel's own birthday post, "Happy Birthday! You are a beautiful legend." Kyle Richards, Daisy Fuentes (who wrote, "You are goals!") and Kimberly Williams Paisley were among other well-wishers.

Brinkley's birthday wish took the form of a rhyming poem, as she wrote of Apfel.

'She's 102 and she's got more style than me and you! She's the Queen of Fashion who gets better every year. And today's her birthday. Did you hear? She's got her trademark glasses and a wardrobe of fun, and we wish her every happiness under the sun,' said the SI cover model.

Brinkley added, 'She's smart and savvy and extremely witty, and she wants everyone to know that individuality's always pretty. That we should all be ourselves, one of a kind. In the photo, Brinkley and Alexa Ray Joel, her 37-year-old daughter with singer Billy Joel, pose while draping their arms over a smiling Apfel and their friend, designer Donna Karan, 74.

Brinkley, as radiant as ever at 69, is wearing a white-and-brown striped top, while Apfel is wearing her signature black glasses while draped in a colorful feather boa.

Apfel waves for the camera as Brinkley adjusts her beautiful blonde hair and Joel flashes the high-wattage smile that she inherited from her mother.

In one slide, Karan helps Apfel put on a gorgeous necklace made of diamonds and other gems, and in another, Apfel shows off a funky purse with green, white, and red stripes. 

Apfel was gifted a variety of expensive necklaces that night — light ones that don't hang heavy around her neck — before she blew out the candle on her birthday cake.

Sporting a typically flamboyant fuzzy jacket with statement jewelry, Apfel paired the birthday look with her recognizable oversized black glasses, which have been her trademark for decades.

She posted her own birthday Instagram, too, writing alongside a festive photo set to Kool & The Gang's "Celebration," "102 TODAY… who would’ve thought!!"
