Daphne Guinness shows us how she survives in her notoriously high and heel-less shoes.
This week The New Yorker ran a piece on Daphne Guinness, and much like everything the style icon does (or wears), the revelations from Rebecca Mead's fantastic profile are surprising, over-the-top, and kind of absurd. 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." So what exactly is Daphne Guinness? We have yet to fully figure it out but in light of the much-talked-about New Yorker interview, we explore the many facets of Daphne Guinness--from her style philosophy to her thoughts on Hitler--though we're willing to bet the thing that will shock you most will be what the style icon looked like in the late '80s. Go on, have a look.
