Daphne Guinness By Steven Klein For Interview Magazine

The eccentric heiress, muse to David LaChapelle and Steven Klein, sartorial leader and style icon - Daphne Guinness - she who proclaims that "there hasn't been anything real since grunge", when describing the last notable era within fashion, appears in the latest issue of Interview Magazine, lensed by Klein.

Clad in statement bling, black stockings, and not very much else, Guinness describes the contemporary fashion scene as "corporate", which clearly it is when you compare what the rest of us are wearing, with her wardrobe full of outlandish and one-off couture creations - not to mention the way she casually clips carats of diamonds to her coif, the way you or I would just tie our hair up in a ponytail
In the magazine interview with Peter Brandt II, she discusses recent projects which include the carefully curated exhibition of her personal clothing and accessories on view at the FIT museum, featuring pieces by Azzedine Alaïa, Karl Lagerfeld, John Galliano, and the late Alexander McQueen; and also the diamond-encrusted, armor-inspired glove she created in collaboration with British jeweller Shaun Leane. The short-film director also talks of the power of reading, the philosophy of fashion and the importance of critical thinking, just like the quote taken from her meeting of minds with Brandt below:

"Everybody's got to wear clothes. Otherwise we'd be naked, probably in breach of the law - and probably cold".

Quite. Has she actually seen the nekkid cowboy though?! Read Interview's glimpse into the wunderbar world of Daphne HERE.
