I would love to see it too but I'm on the other side of the pond. How marvellous would it be if they could bring the collection over for show in London also? A girl can dream..

You're welcome. It's nice seeing how she's changed but still stayed the same. What I mean is I could still see Daphne wearing the boots from the first picture and the brooch from the second, you know? I think dajrekshn described what I tried to say better.

I received it a few days ago and was quite disappointed.
I haven't read it yet, only browsed through it.
It's just photos of her and her thoughts on different topics.
It doesn't seem to have anything to do with the exhibition.

That's a bit sad to hear. You'd think it would have had the potential for something more. Of course she's quite a private person so I understand that she doesn't want to spill her guts. It would have been great if it would have had more stuff about the exhibition though. Especially since I don't think I'll be able to see it myself.

Can you say if there was any new information or if it was just collected from what she's said earlier? It does say she's a co-author in the info on Amazon. I think I might buy it anyways out of curiosity now that it's on offer. I'm on the fence about this but thanks for filling me in!

Ugh, that is such a letdown! I was hoping it was an actual exhibition book. I'm not opposed to pics of Daphne, but I want to see her clothes...the whole reason for the book to exist in the first place.

Guess I'll cross this off my must-have-now list and maybe buy it later. If at all.

The New Yorker article is great--I got the issue on my iPad. I would say it's definitely worth picking up a copy anyway, it's a good issue.

Not sure if Americans get the supplements to VF so I figured I'd take some snaps and share them with you. The supplement (which I bought today in London) came with the November issue of VF with Johnny Depp on the cover. If any of you are interested I can scan them in HQ and post them on here... Sorry about the mediocre snaps; I tried to rotate and save some of them but didn't work for some reason.

Vanity Fair On Couture supplement, November 2011

'Three Spirits', photographed and styled by Michael Roberts
