Commenting on The New Yorker’s piece on Daphne Guinness—which happens to coincide with an exhibit on her style at FIT—Fashionista.com has prepared a slide show a la "This Is Your Life” tracing her evolution from pretty socialite to eccentric billionaire. Like a pre-kabbalah Madonna, Guinness has gone from a mid-’80s cutie pie to an avant-garde icon that’s hard to define. (Looking at a pic that Fashionista.com dug up from 1986 feels like flipping through a copy of her high-school yearbook—or at least an old class photo tagged on Facebook.) Nowadays, "Guinness would probably be the first to admit that she’s not exactly your average human. After all it was her own boyfriend, French philosopher Bernard-Henri Levy, who said of her: ‘[she is] no longer a person, [she is] a concept.’” More like high-concept.
