Daphne Guiness- A Tribute to McQueen

If you haven't seen the great Daphne Guinness’s tribute to the late Alexander McQueen, do so now.  The short tribute which goes for one minute and one second, captures Daphne floating around in pieces of art by Gareth Pugh, Philip Tracey, Fred Leighton and of course the man, himself McQueen. Although it is a tribute to the designer 'that changed her world', it is rather dark and evokes sadness; it is truly a piece of fashion art. The eccentric lady who is better known for flitting around in those impossible but amazing ten inch 'armadillo' heels and her quirky style, is so much more than the heiress she is. She is truly iconic in the fashion world, and a muse to many designers. A collector of haute couture (she has one of the biggest in the world); she championed the works of McQueen and was the focus of who he designed for. She has so much of a hold on the fashion world that designer Dan Nguyen of the label DUY, has made her the concept of his Fall/Winter 2011 collection, 'Long live Daphne.' The Daphne inspired line is set to boast fur, mohair and lace, creating a dark and edgy vibe, with black, taupe, and purple being of the main in the colour sector. Below I have included images of a shoot in the issue of the German 'Zoo Magazine', of the avant-garde fashionta. The images are of course dark and mysterious, however Guiness is the queen of contrasting her fierceness with her enticing beauty.
