>> The One Clothing Item That Eludes Daphne Guinness —Daphne Guinness was suffering from a foot wound over the weekend at a Calvin Klein-sponsored AIDS benefit held at Steven Klein's house in Bridgehampton, but that didn't stop her from wearing ten-inch platform heels (although she did eventually rest her feet by standing on the side of the shoes). Dramatic as her wardrobe may be, Guinness admitted that there is at least one hole in its extensive confines: "I like to experiment with different fabrics and see what happens. There's one fabric I've been looking for for five years. It's like an LCD screen, but it's supple. You'd be able to play the movie 'Sunset Boulevard' on your T-shirt. The military has the first option on it. I keep asking them, 'Can't you just give me a little bit?'" [WSJ]
