Rosa DeLauro vs. Iris Apfel

As the ranking member on the Labor, Health and Human Services, and Education Appropriations Subcommittee, Connecticut Congresswoman Rosa DeLauro oversees the nation’s investments in education, health and employment. She also overlooks the most adventurous and diverse closet on the Hill. Meanwhile, as the ranking member of eclectic American style, 97-year-old interior designer and fashion icon Iris Apfel lords over a closet of unending mix-and-match combinations that is the envy of armies of influencers.

Victor: Rep. Rosa DeLauro—it’s one thing to peacock from the front row at fashion week, it’s another to rock purple highlights and pass legislation.
