Daphne Guinness is one of my ultimate style icons.
About four years ago, courtesy of The Sunday Times Style Lectures and Harvey Nichols Dublin, myself and my mum went to Daphne Guinness in conversation with Colin McDowell.
Guinness is so elegant, poised and yet can wear McQueen’s armadillo shoes like no-one else could. Her trade mark hair, custom-made Louboutin’s to give her the extra height, according to her, passion for couture and exquisite jewellery amongst an endless list of things, make her style.
Her style is undefinable: it’s classic mixed with goth, minimalist, high fashion, avant garde but ultimately, it is her style.
