Who loves Daphne Guinness? Raise your hand! The avant-garde style icon and heiress to the Guinness fortune has captivated many with her unique and fearless fashion choices. Now, the public gets to see exactly what she does to prep herself for a big event—live.
Yes, you read right. In an art piece-slash-publicity stunt, Daphne will get ready for the Met's May 2nd Costume Institute Ball in the window of Barneys' Madison Avenue store. Performance art and fashion lovers alike can watch as Daphne gets her hair done and puts on her face against a backdrop of her storied fashion collection—which includes the late Isabella Blow's wardrobe and probably lots of early McQueen.
If there were ever any reason to ever walk past Barneys, this is it. Now, if only we were in New York! Will you be checking out Daphne Guinness' performance?
