That said, the exhibition of her clothes will probably be absolutely spectacular, possibly even better than the time she auctioned off the clothes she'd collected during her marriage a few years ago.

I was always so curious to see what her husband looked like and then fashionista posted a photo of the two of them together from the 80s...she seriously used to look like a prep school student in Connecticut! So interesting to see her evolution...she's much darker now.

Thanks for posting this. Definitely one of the most thoughtful interviews done with her. I really enjoyed reading it.

~~~~~~~~~~~~
I can't imagine Daphne looking conventional! Ever. Methinks I'll have to browse through the older threads so I can see what her version of "conventional" pre-divorce, looked liked.

You're welcome wild roses. I agree with you about the interview.

Does anyone have her current The New Yorker magazine interview they could post? Wonder how it compares to the Telegraph interview?

I highly reccommend taking a peek^, there are bigger versions of pictures we've seen before. You're able to see the details in her clothing very well and for example I didn't realise she wore her sky high Louboutins to Chanel HC SS04!! Bless!

oh wow, so it's 2003 that this whole "concept thing" started, actually in a matter of months in 2003 she went from your typical socialite dressing up to the Daphne we know nowadays. i love how you can actually see bits and pieces in her old style that point to pieces she wears nowadays.thank you for the pics!

I don't get The New Yorker and the interview is only on their premiem service, but here is the abstract- sounds like it is worth finding a copy...

ABSTRACT: PROFILE of Daphne Guinness.

Of the more than half million visitors who attended “Savage Beauty,” the Metropolitan Museum’s blockbuster show dedicated to the work of the late fashion designer Alexander McQueen, few felt more intimately acquainted with the works on display than Daphne Guinness. Guinness was a friend of McQueen, as well as an aficionado of his designs. She owned close duplicates of many of the clothes in the exhibition. Guinness has been variously described in the press as an heiress, a muse, a socialite, a designer, and an artist, and though all these characterizations are partly accurate, none quite conveys her affect, which is that of a slightly deranged fairy invented by C.S. Lewis. Her aesthetic is often futuristic, but she also appears to have come from a bygone age when getting dressed was considered a demanding form of self-expression, rather than an opportunity to wallow in spandex-enabled comfort. With her fondness for lace ruffles and velvet chokers and frock coats of the sort worn by Regency dandies, and the disciplined line of her silhouette, Guinness often resembles both a Gainsborough portrait of a lady and a Gainsborough portrait of the lady’s husband. Her appearance is so interesting it suggests that her appearance is the least interesting thing about her. Guinness’s father is Jonathan Guinness, a baron and an heir to the Irish brewery fortune; her grandmother was Diana Mitford, whom she resembles in appearance. Guinness married Spyros Niarchos, a son of Stavros Niarchos, the Greek shipping billionaire, in 1987, when she was nineteen. They had three children. Guinness was divorced in 2000 and returned to London with her children; in recent years, however, they have lived primarily with their father. For the past five years, Guinness has been involved with Bernard-Henri Lévy, the French philosopher and timber heir. Lévy is married to Arielle Dombasle, an actress and a chanteuse. This fall, the museum at the Fashion Institute of Technology will devote one of its galleries to about a hundred of Guinness’s most important pieces. Valerie Steele, the director and chief curator of the F.I.T. museum, puts Guinness in the lineage of Grace Kelly, Tina Chow, and Nan Kempner—women whose wearing of clothes amounts to a form of creativity in itself. Tells about Guinness’s friendship with Isabella Blow. Discusses Guinness’s family background and describes a recent photo shoot she did with Bryan Adams that paid homage to the career of David Bowie.
