Casual is not part of Daphne Guinness’ vocabulary. Nor is dull. The 41 year old British fashion extraordinnaire has a flair for the dramatic and is one of the select few who can afford to be a collector of Haute Couture, due to the fact that she is heiress to the Guinness fortune and secured a huge settlement after divorcing the Greek shipping billionaire Stavros Niarchos.

With her pale pallor and delicate features, Irina Lazareanu looks like a tragic heroine from a Tolstoy novel. But the 27 year old, Romanian born model and singer’s bohemian style with a twist certainly packs a punch. Her penchant for military apparel, oversized men’s blazers and headbands are unique. Her daywear is louche with masculine tailoring but her eveningwear is usually an elegant column dress accessorized with clumpy doc marten boots. Here is a girl who’s personality is so tightly entwined with her style that it is nigh impossible to imitate but still inspiring none the less.
