Friday Jams

Daphne Guinness for the win... 

SHOWstudio: Evening In Space - Daphne Guinness / David LaChapelle / Tony Visconti from SHOWstudio on Vimeo.

Edie sent me this video on kind of a lark--she is obsessed slightly with Daphne Guinness and might even be her idol if she were to have such a thing. Now here's the back story of Daphne--she is the heiress to the Guinness fortune, one of the world's largest patrons to the arts and was the muse and close friend of the late Alexander McQueen. Her closet is one of the world's premiere fashion treasure troves--she is Lady Gaga if she grew up with money and expensive boarding schools.

So you might assume I am just obsessed with the styling and fashion in this video--I mean that closet mixed with David LaChapelle on it's own is pretty Rory porn--but I also like the sound of the video. She reminds me of Nico with that husky voice and odd pronunciation when she sings--it makes me want to go and re-listen to all my Velvet Underground albums.

She just needs a better song itself.
