What will Daphne Guinness offer at her June 27 Christie’s South Kensington sale to benefit the Isabella Blow Foundation? An enviable list of coveted designers: Alexander McQueen, Chanel, Gareth Pugh, Lanvin, Prada, Gucci, and more. Expected to raise more than £100,000 ($159,590) for the charity dedicated to Guinness's late friend, the auction’s lots are estimated to start at £300 ($478) and most items are up for £3,000 ($4,787) or less. The star of the sale is a custom-made 2008 Alexander McQueen sculptural mini dress created especially for Guinness. The contents of the auction will be on view to the public June 23-27 in London. After all, it’s not everyday that a fashion icon puts part of her drool-worthy wardrobe up for sale.
