Fashion Icon: Daphne Guinness

As controversial as she is inspiring, Daphne Guinness keeps the fashion industry on their toes. The Irish brewery heiress could easily have lived a life of comfort, but is better known for her outrageous style and creativity. When her good friend, Alexander McQueen, passed away, she wore a veil over her face in mourning. She also once commissioned an armour glove embedded with over 5 000 diamonds and Lady Gaga often draws inspiration from her looks. Simultaneously muse and a creator, Daphne spent two years exhibiting hundreds of items of her clothing at the request of the Fashion Institute of Technology.
