Daphne Guinness Trades in Skunk-Striped Hair for All Black, Swims in Pool Clothed for Art Basel Performance Piece

>> Daphne Guinness, who has experienced an increase in industry attention this year between her Comme des Garcons-backed perfume and her tendency to wear the unwearable shoe — from Alexander McQueen and Nina Ricci under Olivier Theyskens, in particular, has traded in her iconic skunk-striped hair for a new look.  When she flew in to Miami from London for Art Basel, she debuted an all-black coif, causing many, apparently, to not recognize her.

She joined beau Andre Balazs at the festivities, and later close friend and photographer David LaChapelle, with whom she presented "an incredibly elaborate advertising campaign for Maybach, the Mercedes-Benz line of uber-luxury cars, in front of both the company’s German executives and an Art Basel audience," according to Stefano Tonchi. Afterward, they dove into the hotel swimming pool, LaChapelle in only his underwear, and Daphne in couture, coif, diamonds, and all.
