Are you familiar with Daphne Guinness? No? Well let us introduce you. Daphne is the heiress to the Guinness (beer) fortune and ex-wife of shipping heir Spyros Niarchos, which leaves her with a considerable expendable income to spend on her true love; couture fashion. Thanks to her avant-garde sense of style and Cruella de Ville-esque 'do Daphne has played muse to many a designer, and she famously bought Isabella Blow's entire wardrobe in the name of preservation. Tatler Hong Kong celebrates Guinness' inimitable style in their latest issue, employing snapper duo Markus + Indrani to immortalize her love of couture and armoury in a series of high-fashion portraits.Take a 101 lesson in Daphne's signature style by flicking through the truly fabulous spread.
In a classic case of 'supermodels-who-get-better-with-age,' Christy Turlington graces the May issue of Tatler sporting an androgynous look complete with drawn-on moustache. Although unusual, the French-style mo' does little to distract from her flawless complexion and natural beauty. The menswear-inspired look is a far cry from her recent Harper's Bazaar Singapore and The Gentlewoman covers, which both focus on Christy in her feminine, supermodel element. What do you think of this image — creative and gorgeous, or does the mo' just have to go?
It was only a matter of time before a glossy magazine featured Pippa Middleton on its cover. It has been revealed that Pippa will be front and centre of UK magazine Tatler’s August issue. No, she hasn’t done an exclusive photo shoot — her cover is a black-and-white picture from the royal wedding surrounded by a frame of colourful flowers. The accompanying cover line reads, “Pippa: The bottom line,” and the inside article by Annabel Rivkin mentions her tan and enviable physique — just two of Pippa’s many talking points (others being who she’s dating and whether she and Prince Harry will ever get together). Tatler also gave Kate Middleton the Andy Warhol treatment back in January, so it clearly likes to take the artistic route with the Middleton sisters. What do you think about Pippa’s cover? Do you like its design?
It was only a matter of time until Kate Middleton appeared on the cover of this iconic British publication. Tatler has created an Andy Warhol inspired image for the February 2011 issue of the future Mrs Windsor, and I couldn't help but smile when I saw it. Warhol was famous for making icons out of popular figures — Marilyn Monroe, Jacki O, Elvis and Diane von Furstenberg all got his screen printed treatment. It's colourful, eye catching and she certainly is the girl of the moment, so I'm sure it will be a popular choice! What do you think of Ms Middleton in technicolour?
Does Victoria Beckham ever sit still? The answer would be no. She runs every day. Looks after her three gorgeous boys (Cruz and his break-dancing moves still gets us every time), designs the chic VB Collection which celebs can't get enough of, continually adds to her fragrance collection and leads the charge of the US WAGs—though she's ditching the "footballer's wife" tan in favour of a more natural look.
And seems Posh is on a roll when it comes to talking beauty. She told Tatler (in its January issue) that she's a big fan of Chanel polishes for the "forward-thinking colours," that she "keep[s] it simple" with NIVEA body lotion and that Frédéric Fekkai leave-in conditioner is a must. She describes Stila Lip Polish in Gleam is "an old favourite" but admits to experimenting recently with Burberry Lip Glow in Nutmeg. And never one to rest of her laurels, she confessed that if she could design a beauty product "it would be the perfect nude lip gloss." Huh. Watch this space for news on VB Collection Beauty.
