Style Icon: Daphne Guinness

The no woman is more inspiring to me than Daphne Guinness. This woman has no fear! It's no wonder that some of best friends were Alexander McQueen and Isabella Blow and has been a muse for several designers, including the one and only--Karl Lagerfeld. This woman wears haute couture like the rest of us wear a t-shirt and jeans. It's just so natural for her!

From September 16th to January 7th, the Museum at FIT will be showing an exhibition on Guinness which will include over 100 garments and accessories from her personal collection. Some of the designers to be featured are Alexander McQueen, Azzedine Alaïa, Karl Lagerfeld for Chanel, John Galliano for Christian Dior, Dolce & Gabbana, Rick Owens, Gareth Pugh, and Valentino. The collection will also feature some of Guinness' own designs.

 Fabulous shoes that Guinness designed so that when she was tired of standing on her 6" platforms she could just rock back and be able to rest the balls of her feet. Amazing!

Here are some of my favorite Guinness editorials:
