Daphne Guinness on Display at Barneys

In preparation for the annual Met Costume Institute Gala to honor this year's Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty exhibition, Daphne Guinness was the subject of a fashion-meets-art installation in the Madison Avenue windows of Barneys New York. Appearing first in a glorious gold ensemble, she slipped behind a screen to change into her feathered McQueen frock. The appearance marks the beginning of a six-week collaborative installation with Guinness to showcase pieces from her personal wardrobe collection, as well as the collection of the late Isabella Blow, all at Barneys New York. At the end of the performance Daphne was escorted off to the gala in a Mercedes Benz convertible, so as not to be fashionably late!
