I purposefully left Daphne Guinness out of my previous post on the Met Ball, I just felt like she deserved her own post. When I said the Met Ball was for pushing the fashion boundaries, I was thinking about Daphne. The impeccably dressed muse and couture collector continually experiments and challenges the status quo like an inquisitive child. I mean that in the best possible way, she’s true patron of the fashion world.
I was quite intrigued to see what she would choose to wear to the opening of the McQueen exhibit, as a very close friend of the designer it was a given that it would be something McQueen but I felt as if her actual outfit choice would be significant. It seems I’m not the only one who thought so as Daphne was videoed getting dressed in a dramatic performance piece for Barneys. She ended up wearing a Burton designed McQueen dress, which I thought was a very poignant stamp of approval for the new designer.
Loved this dress when it went down the catwalk ages ago.. not many people could pull it off but she sure can!! indeed a fitting dress for her x
