Lady Gaga Bids a Record-Breaking $133,000 for an Alexander McQueen Gown at Daphne Guinness's Auction
Yesterday Daphne Guinness put 102 fabulous items from her closet on the block at Christie's to benefit the Isabella Blow Foundation in memory of her late friend and editor, who committed suicide in 2007. According to the Telegraph, Guinness was hoping to raise about £100,000 ($155,994) and instead pulled in almost quintuple that amount, a whopping £476,800 (about $743,782). Among the big ticket items were a Mario Testino portrait of the beer heiress which went for £133,250 ($207,862), and in the process set a new world record selling price for a Testino picture. Another big spender bought an Alexander McQueen dress--called The Girl Who Lived In The Tree (at left)--for £85,250 ($132,985), which also set a record as the most ever spent on a McQueen piece. Turns out the girl with deep pockets was most likely Lady Gaga, a friend and champion of the late designer and a fangirl of both Blow and Guinness.

Daphne Guinness To Exhibit Isabella Blow's Wardrobe at Central St. Martins and Online, Is Starting a Mental Health Foundation
Daphne Guinness has finally revealed, to Charlie Rose of all people, what she plans to do with that wardrobe of Isabella Blow's she bought following Blow's death, to prevent it from being auctioned off. Rose hosted a discussion about the state of fashion with Diane Von Furstenberg, Suzy Menkes and Guinness. For the most part, Guinness appeared shy and didn't say much--Menkes was the most loquacious--but she did share a couple of interesting tidbits. Adding on to a discussion about how the digital revolution is changing and democratizing fashion, she said, I'm going to put together now a show of my friend's clothes who died and I'm going to do that online so that people in New Zealand can see it because they might not be able to get to Central St. Martin's to be able to see that.
