Many music makers have tried their hand at fashion design, from Victoria Beckham to Gwen Stefani, but now one of the world's biggest style influencers, Daphne Guinness, is releasing her debut single. Guinness, a friend of the late designer Alexander McQueen, is renowned for her love of Couture. Her taste is so revered that last year she auctioned off pieces from her wardrobe for a whopping £476,800, with super fan Lady Gaga putting in a few bids.
Alongside her role as fashion industry muse, Guinness has produced a collection with M.A.C and acted in a series of short films. It comes as little surprise that for her first music video, directed by SHOWstudio.com's Nick Knight and edited by filmmaker Marie Schuller, the fashion maven takes centre stage. Featuring Daphne wearing a top hat and various feathery ensembles against trippy, screen-saver style backgrounds, the promo is the perfect complement to the star's growly tone on 'Fatal Flaw'. The heiress revealed, "This song came from broken bonds, fragmented dreams. In part, it's about the sheer randomness of love and its illusionary effect."
The single is available to download via SHOWstudio.com from June 20, but for now you can watch the video below and see material from four of our other favourite fashion icons-turned-musical divas...
1. Daphne Guinness - 'Fatal Flaw'
2. Karen Elson - 'The Truth Is The Dirt'
