L’Inspiration de Dimitri | Daphne Guinness

Daphne by Steven Klien for Vogue Italia

To be quite honest and straight up, no one has the confidence or taste to match that of Daphne Guinness; and she herself has created some sort of new category in fashion which can only be defined by the haute couture she wears on a daily basis. The heiress of the Guinness family who is generally an artist of Irish, English and French descent,  is prominent in the fashion world as a journalist and collector of haute couture.  A few days ago, while perusing Bryan’s blog I was completely blown away by a short film by Director Brennan Stasiewicz  which captures Daphne, who is described as Fashion’s Enigma, at her home and on display. Check it out on NOWNESS.COM. I can’t tell in words the fascination which spanned throughout the 10 minute video; however, I can without a doubt say, that Daphne is definitely one whose style, class and haute sophistication will live with us forever.  I can’t speak for many others, but for myself, a few of my friends and my fellow bloggers, Daphne has been a true inspiration, in her confidence, versatility and creativity. Born November 9th 1967, the 43-year-old was listed to the International Best Dressed List Hall of Fame in 1994, modeled in Naomi Campbell’s Fashion for Relief runway show for the White Ribbon Alliance to raise funds for mothers in Haiti in 2010 and also in 2010, NARS Cosmetics launched a new collection which was dedicated to her. Anyway, without further delay, I present you my great compilation of photos which capture the essence of this true Style Icon, who defines everything fashion is.

Leaving on a note of inspiration, let’s remember the words she whispered to Bazaar. “I don’t approach fashion; fashion approaches me!”
