I do believe there are few people in this world who are true style icons, who follow fashion religiously and without shame, often launching trends and sometimes causing scrutiny from the average people who think that just because they know how to pronounce “Vogue” they know much about fashion. The artist of Irish descent and heiress of the Guinness family, Daphne Guinness is definitely one of those people whose style is daring, fierce and passionate.
After collaborating with Vogue Italia several times, which resulted in spectacular editorials, Daphne Guinness stars in yet another editorial photographed by the photographer of fierceness, Steven Klein (also male-super-model Tyson Ballou in the supporting role). The editorial, titled “The Classy Daphne”, displays a darker and moodier side of Daphne, infused by the elegant pieces she’s wearing throughout, in black, white and dramatic animal prints courtesy of Dolce&Gabbana.
I couldn’t help but think of Lars von Trier films when I first saw this editorial, the minimalist styled setting was reminiscent of a modern day luxury version of “Dogville” starring Nicole Kidman, plus the unmistakable Alfred Hitchcock vibe (which we have been seeing a lot of lately, like here and here).
