Style icon and Guinness family heiress Daphne Guinness will make a live appearance in one of Barney’s windows today at 5 p.m. dressed in Alexander McQueen, a prelude to this year’s Costume Institute Gala (taking place tonight) and the Met’s exhibit of McQueen’s work, Savage Beauty, opening on Wednesday.
