Obsession (of the week)

Have you ever heard of Daphne Guinness? Its okay if you haven’t, but you should find out about her, or more specifically her opulent and over the top collection of clothes that FIT now has on exhibit, and that I am obsessed with.  Daphne is an heiress (she comes from the family who makes a certain beer with the same name), socialite, and fashion icon so naturally she has an amazing collection of clothing.  Don’t believe me? Her favorite designers were Alexander McQueen, Valentino, and Christian Lacriox.  Not only are her clothes fabulous, but the shoes in the exhibit are gravity defying to say the least.  A few pairs will be show below, but trust me they are fabulous.  It is an all around exquisite exhibit because not only are the clothes gorgeous, but they are also innovative and unexpected.  The Museum at FIT is only running this until January 7th of 2012, so get your butts over there and check it out!! You will not be disappointed.
