Daphne Guinness: From The Zoo to A Window Display
What will this fashion insider think of next? Recently, we told you how Daphne graced the cover of Zoo Magazine. Now she is onto something even more interesting…Guinness will be getting ready for the annual gala benefitting The Costume Institute, not in a fancy schmancy hotel a la Anna Dello Russo, but instead, in a window at Barneys New York on May 2nd at around 5pm…yes, you heard right.
This will also be a celebration of Alexander McQueen‘s work as she will be wearing one of his gowns. But don’t think that Guinness is baring it all. According to the New York Times, she will be getting dressed behind something…”I’m not Dita Von Teese, nor shall I be” she said.
Although this is a cool concept, I can’t imagine the swarms of people that will flock outside the retail location…The good news is that the displays will be up for a few weeks (sans Guinness) for the public to see… But hey, how about a live stream for us folks who can’t make it?
