Fans of the Tumblr blog Textbook, take note: Fashionista has teamed up with the blog's mastermind, John Jannuzzi, to create storyboards for our industry's style stars (last week he took on Elle's Kate Lanphear).

Many people look at fashion as a form of self-expression. And who could blame them? Your wardrobe is just another extension of your personality, which is one of the greatest things about clothing. Considering that, is there anybody in the world with more personality than Daphne Guinness?

Seriously, she sports silhouettes that most mortals wouldn't dare dream of and seems as if she's always just walked off a runway. That's why we love her--she's comfortable in her skin and fearless in her wardrobe no matter the occasion. Of course, with a history like hers that includes a delicious beer, Andy Warhol and a storied lineage, it's no wonder she has the fashion world hanging on her every word. Give it up for Daphne. And the next time you see somebody whose outfit is just a bit over the top, remember that their just channeling Ms. Guinness. Be daring kids, be daring.
