Daphne Guinness x Patti Smith "Because The Night" @TheRealDaphne

As you've never seen her before, fashion icon and muse, Daphne Guinness, performs an impromptu cover of Patti Smith's "Because The Night" at Arlene's Grocery, a club in NYC's Lower East Side. Guinness, who is also a classically trained singer, plans to release an album soon, revealing via her Twitter that "this is the beginning" and "I am going to record this summer... rock and roll I guess, and some opera."

I know what you're thinking already, Patti Smith = gravelly, twangy voice. Daphne Guinness = angelic pretty voice. 
But actually Daphne does a pretty hot cover of one of my favourite ever Patti tunes! 
Watch for yourself below:


And here is the original by the original rebel, Patti! #LOVE
