Fashion Icon Friday: Daphne Guinness
Who can say they are a muse for Karl Lagerfeld, BFF’s with the late Alexander McQueen, used to party with Andy Warhol, modeled in the exclusive Tom Ford women’s collection show, and had a MAC cosmetic line inspired by them?
Daphne Guinness can, and that doesn’t even scratch the surface of what an impact she has had on the fashion, art, and film worlds. Daphne has quite the family background; she’s an heir to the Guinness—yes the beer makers—family and her mother was a muse for Man Ray and Dali. Daphne followed in her mother’s footsteps, as she has been a muse to countless designers and artists—even Lady Gaga has said she’s inspired by her.
Daphne doesn’t just inspire fashion and art, but gives back to other artists, theaters, and libraries. She has participated in a number of charity events and fashion shows. Daphne has also been an artist herself, as well as an actress, and produced short films. Third Wave Fashion got to check out the exhibit at The Museum at FIT devoted to the amazing fashion pieces of Daphne Guinness.
She truly emulates the phrase “Fashion Icon.”
