Daphne Guinness is not the woman you’d imagine to be an heiress to a popular brewing company, but she is. However, the image we see is that of a sophisticated, daring fashion plate, who blurs the line between art and fashion.
Named to the International Best Dressed List hall of fame in 1994, today Guinness continues to be a connoisseur of fashion. One of Alexander McQueen’s biggest fans, she can be seen at just about any fashion event sporting one of the late designer’s frocks.
She chose to wear one of the most daring dresses from the recent Alexander McQueen collection, now headed by Sarah Burton, to the Met Gala, which she changed into in the Barney’s display window.
Guinness is prominent in the fashion world as an icon, journalist, and collector of couture. She’s modeled for Naomi Campbell’s Fashion for Relief and appeared in Kid Cudi’s “Pursuit of Happiness” video.
