Guinness, not Gaga...

While there have been many museum exhibitions devoted to great fashion designers, only a few have focused on individual women of style.

For those who might not be as in-the-know when it comes to royal heirs and fashion icons, I've got you covered. Heir to the Guinness fortune and a true original, I've been following Daphne Guinness since I was a teen. Basically, Daphne was Alexander McQueen's muse. Daring, diverse and fearless, I think she must be one of Lady Gaga's inspirations...

She is the subject of the Daphne Guinness exhibition at The Museum at Fashion Institute of Technology. Opened on September 16, 2011 and on view through January 7, 2012, the exhibition will feature approximately 100 garments and accessories from Guinness’s personal collection, plus films, videos, and images, of and by her. If you are in NYC you don't want miss this!

“She is one of the – if not the – most stylish women living,” Tom Ford
