Apparently I have completely missed the boat. I have always thought of Daphne Guinness as this freaky middle aged lady that is always wearing some crazy outfit but apparently she is muse to the likes of Karl Lagerfeld and the late Alexander McQueen. Tom Ford has said, "Daphne is one of- if not the- most stylish women living." Guiness's name appears along side Kate Moss, Rachel Zoe, Lady Gaga, Sarah Jessica Parker, Coco Chanel, Audrey Hepburn and Jacqueline Kennedy as a style icon!
Well, now I feel really stupid that I always thought she was some loony with too much money, I mean she totally is but after reading up I see she is much more than that. You have to give me a break most of the pictures I have seen of her look like this...
Wide Eyed to the point of looking scary. Daphne is really a beautiful woman and although over the top, her wardrobe choices are quite entertaining...
Some people describe Daphne (daughter of brewery heir, Jonathan Guinness, Lord Moyne) as a clothes horse but I think she likes to think of her self as an art collector. She once said in reference to her public wardrobe choices (they) "are kind of an ever- evolving art project".
In reading about her she seems like a deep, appreciative person and that makes her interesting and likeable- at least to me.
A few videos that give a little insight into Daphne...
Daphne Guinness, intriguing.
