Fabcon: Daphne Guinness

Someone should make a movie about Daphne. Not only does she wear couture like I wear cropped jeans she has a colorful past. She is an heiress. Does her last name ring a bell? Daphne is the daughter of Guinness brewery heir Jonathan Guinness. She married Spyros Niarchos (also a familiar last name) at 19 and divorced with a settlement of $40 million dollars. Put the two and two together, and that's how she can afford couture.

But she is also serious fashion folk. She is friends with designer greats like Karl Lagerfeld (fun fact: she turned him on to Grand Theft Auto), Alexander McQueen and Stella McCartney, as well as photog Mario Testino and Naomi Campbell. While I have been stalking her for a while now, she was recently out and about at couture week last week promoting her short film "The Phenomenology of Body."

To read more about Daphne and to see her, mostly in couture,

She flitters about fashion circles but also writes, has three children and designs her own heraldic jewelry line — check out her armor-like jewelry in these photos, it's really cool. Her style is intense; she is an upscale British eccentric. She favors corsets, mini skirts, mile-high platforms, feathers, headpieces, and you can't miss her platinum, skunk-striped hair.

She made a movie, which she comments, ''Really, the piece is a revolving passage, a voyage of the female form canceling or revealing.'' Sounds interesting, but Daphne Guinness, The Movie, sounds more interesting.

About the old/young thing: Maybe in the pictures where she looks old, the problem is that she hadn't bathed in the blood of virgins that day. Hee.

I agree with mysterious aging issue. Some photos she looks quite young and lovely and in others she looks like she borderline old and haggard. What gives?

How come nobody else has asked if she's anorexic yet? She certainly doesn't look healthy.

You should wiki her andher extended family. I believe she is the daughter or grandaughter of one of the Mitfords-a high-society family infamous in WWII Britain-five socialite daughters, 2 were very close friends of Hitler (I believe one of these, Diana, initially married the Guiness heir and then left him for a prominent British Fascist and spent several years in prison after the war), one daughter was an outspoken communist, one was a very famous writer. She's a lot more interesting than just her clothes.

Her beer loving ancestors would be shocked at her skinniness. She has neat style, but looks unhealthy.
