Being a world-renowned fashion muse with an estimated worth of $100Millions, with friends in all the high and right places doesn’t save you from being ridiculous: in other words, Daphne Guinness pulled a Paris Hilton on us!
The 46-year old heiress to the eponymous beer empire is now a complete artist with an upcoming album soon under her belt. Scheduled to launch this September 2014, Daphne’s album has the support of her artsy friends Nick Knight and David LaChapelle with whom she has worked many times before and Tony Visconti (whose collaborations includes David Bowie, among many others – which may be just why this Evening in Space has a distinct Ziggy Stardust feel). Scroll down to see the video!
This is Daphne’s second single, actually, the first one – Fatal Flaw – was launched last year, also with the extraordinary help of Nick Knight. Ironically so, the title can describe the heiress’ vocal talents for some. For others, the visual feast of her eccentric and exquisite wardrobe is excuse enough for any musical cacophony.
Let’s see what we can find out from Daphne’s Evening in Space: Daphne (like she confessed in an interview last year) is stuck in the 80s, thus her Bowie-ish music, neon staging and cotton-candy alien puppy love seem to be revisiting just that time. Living in a cartoonish neon landscape (pink clouds? how original!), Daphne pictures herself as an old-school stage music performer dolled up in geisha outfits.
Although we love Daphne Guinness’s fashion sense and eccentrically exquisite wardrobe, Katy Perry & Gaga visited this Alien-thingy before and we’re felling pretty saturated with Twilight-ish love songs! If anything, this video proves that Daphne is human and she can fall off of her hoof-like heels (except she has a candy-pink-alien to revive her).
Talking about odd – Daphne seems to be into flexible metal hoses and she might have a slightly different perspective on body anatomy than the rest of us (at least judging by the explicit intimate scenes in her video – consciously coupling alien male parts and female human sternum seems to be a source of infinite pleasure for Daphne). She must’ve secretly studied Cosmo’s secrets for a fabulous love life! It’s all good when it ends good and Daphne seems to have gone through an orgasmic beyond-death experience which transformed her into a neon alien.
.. wasn’t Paris Hilton’s first single about love and stars too? just saying…
