Daphne Guinness Changes in McQueen in Front of Everybody


 On the night of the Met Gala, a longed talked about performance piece took place.

Daphne Guinness   got dressed for the Gala in a Barney’s Window. Kinda sounds bizarre, weird and a bit wtf. Why would you do that? And how would you do that without the whole world seeing thing you don’t really want them to see?

Well it was quite cool I must say. The whole theatricality of Ms. Guinness’ behavour, the lighting, the clean set up was quite a show. And of course the dress itself, was a masterpiece.

So yep, weird things happen, but exactly they make life interesting and fashion unpredictable.

This is the whole 7 minutes long performance piece. Enjoy!
