I felt the need to take my casual Sunday look up a notch for my visit to the Fashion Institute's new exhibit on Daphne Guinness. Jeans just don't cut it when you know you will be entering a sartorial paradise filled with creations by the likes of Alexander McQueen, Chanel and Nina Ricci. Guinness, known for her froth of platinum hair and fearless sense of style, is a fashion trailblazer; a collector of serious couture as well as inspiration for some of the world's greatest designer's.
Karl Lagerfeld for ChanelThe exhibit gives a fascinating view into the fashion icon's eclectic closet. From the 10 inch Nina Ricci red suede shoes to the Chanel silver lame jacket by Karl Lagerfield, Guiness's has accumulated a collection of serious eye candy and the making's of a perfect Sunday afternoon.
