^ Oh my goodness, WHAT a stunner.
And Melly5525 it looks like McQueen and was worn to The Legend of the Lady White Snake premiere, so it only seems logical. I can't find any confirmation though.

I sometimes wonder how she can handle all that hair spray all the time.

Daphne’s Fashion Sale

Ella Alexander
02 March 2012


DAPHNE GUINNESS is offering you the chance to buy items from her personal wardrobe, at an auction held at Christie's on June 27. All proceeds will go towards the Isabella Blow Foundation, a newly-launched charity set up by the heiress to help support young art and fashion talent.
"We are delighted to be offering the fashion world this incredible one-off opportunity to buy some of the most iconic and cutting-edge haute couture of the early 21st Century, owned and worn by Daphne Guinness," said Christie's fashion director Pat Frost. "Not only will the auction comprise exceptional designs by the likes of McQueen, Chanel, Balenciagaand others, but it will also aptly benefit and shape the designers of the future. Christie's is very proud to be able to play a part in helping Daphne to achieve her forward-looking and charitable aim."
Having bought the fashion collection of her late friend and stylist - Blow - in June 2010, in order to stop the planned Christie's auction, Guinness will now sell 100 of her own avant-garde pieces. The contents of the sale will go on public display from June 23 until June 27.

That's exciting! If I have the money, I'm definitely going to have to buy a copy of the auction book. I love the charity idea too, especially since the arts are always underfunded and it's hard for newcomers to break in.

i love the "coat/vest" and the "shirt" is great, but no to those pants/tights - it looks too cheap for Daphne.

As much a part of me is excited about her auctioning off her clothing to set up that IB foundation, another part of me is like "you have the money to not only to buy your own haute couture, but IB's entire collection as well: that means you have enough to set up the foundation without auctioning off your clothes." So I'm hoping we'll get more details on what Daphne plans to contribute, financially and otherwise.

And until then, I'm avoiding buying the auction catalogue.

Latest outfit: love the top half. Bottom half makes her look like a clown.

The makeup is too severe harsh for my liking, wish she had wore tights not stockings.
